Valentine WeWriWa: Linda and Katie

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 WarriorsEvery 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: Linda and Katie are on their first date. They are both flying high with excitement, and riddled with anxiety. This excerpt has been edited to fit 10 sentences.

Katie could not believe that Linda was finally sitting across the table from her; it took every ounce of will power to not break out into giddy excitement.  Her chest was tight and she could feel her heart beating, but this she also felt as though she was flying; this was the greatest feeling in the world.
The waitress came over with their fajitas.
Linda looked down at her plate;  she began shaking her head.
Linda chortled,  “This is not good first date food.”
“What do you mean?”  Katie asked, as she did, she looked up and saw a clump of lettuce and sour cream fall out the back of Linda’s fajita;  Katie laughed.
Linda said as she crunched down, “See?!”

            “Well, I don’t mind;  I think you still look sexy,”  Katie winked.

Oh boy, Linda voiced the fear so many feel when we are trying to make a decent impression and there is food involved. Made me laugh! Great snippet.
