It's Saturday night, which can mean only one thing: WeWriWa! This month, to celebrate the Valentine's Day and love, we will be reading excerpts from my group of interwoven short stories, the Loving Her series. Each weekend, we will get a sneak peek into the love and lives of the four couples. So, without further ado, let's WeWriWa!

This post is part of an ongoing blog hop hosted by Weekend Writing Warriors. Every Sunday, participating authors post eight to ten sentences from a published work or even a WIP (work in progress). Then we hop to our fellow warriors’ blogs and check out all the fabulous fiction that’s happening! It's a great way to meet readers, writers, and your next favorite book! :)
Background on the excerpt: Donna and Brynn met earlier, arresting a perpetrator together. Things had pretty much been wrapped up, so Donna begins to leave Brynn's precinct, when Brynn races to catch up with her. The dialogue starts with Brynn speaking first. This snippet has been edited to fit 10 sentences.
“I was just wondering if you were doing anything tonight.”
“Tonight? Oh, well one of my friends is premiering as the prima ballerina at the PA Ballet, but maybe…”
“Can I join you?”
“If you want, sure.” She paused; she didn’t expect this. She wanted Brynn to come, but she hadn’t planned on making a date of it; she wracked her brain for ideas. “The show starts at eight; can I pick up you up at…six?”
“Sounds like a date!”
Donna left the precinct with a huge smile on her face.
