#Six Sentence Sunday #10 – A Heart Not Easily Broken

Happy Mother's Day!

If you've been following  for the past few weeks, you know that Ebony was determined to catch the eye of the hunky drum player in the band. In her efforts to get his attention, she placed herself in front of the stage and danced. When song ended, she realized nearly every man in the vicinity was showing their approval. Everyone but the drummer that is. But another band member noticed her. The blond haired, blue-eyed guitar player.

 How will she handle his unexpected attention?

 He was attractive but… he was white, not what I was aiming for. My lips tilted in a small smile before I moved out of his line of sight, placing myself in front of dancers who’d moved closer to the stage blocking my view of the drummer.
The next song played, and again, I tried to get lost in the music. My eyes closed, it was impossible to find my grove again without feeling stalked. The hair on the back of my neck stood up, drawing my attention down the length of the stage and to the guitar player, who once again, watched me with a predatory gleam in his eye. When the song ended, I worked my way back to my friends.

Ebony, girl, that sounds like a man who’s not about to let you out of his sight! And he’s good looking too? Could he be the one? Come back next week to find out! (I promise, you'll actually find out next week!)
