Six Sentence Sunday for "Sunny Days, Moonlit Nights"

Here is my entry for today. Hope you enjoy this snippet and leave a comment afterward. Thank you for stopping by.

“Towel!” she hollered, covering herself as best she could with
her hands and arms. After studying her body briefly, he looked
away then threw her a towel, went over to the water controls and
turned off the hot and cold water. Caroline covered herself with 

the skimpy towel and stared at the man. He was in his thirties,
handsome with dark brown hair, light brown eyes, a slightly square
jaw, one day’s growth of beard and over six feet tall with a slim,
strong build.
“You need a new spigot. There might be one in the shed good
enough to hold for today, but tomorrow you should stop by the
hardware store and pick up a new one,” he told her.
There was something about his voice, something she
recognized. Caroline stared at his face, peering into his eyes…

those eyes seemed familiar. She gasped.
“Mickey, is that you?”

Here is a short synopsis:

Caroline Davis White is a well-known artist married to a philandering multi-millionaire. She has everything any woman could wish for except love. Brad refuses to give her the divorce she so desperately wants.  With no money, family, or friends, she flees to the small community in Catskill Mountains where she spent her summers as a child.
Mike Foster, Caroline’s childhood crush grown up, achieved success and made more money than he could ever have dreamed, but it destroyed his marriage and cost him his son.  He is wary of women who find his wallet more attractive than his good looks.
Caroline reconnects with the life she had and friends from long ago. Mike steps out of her teenage dreams into her life again, looking more handsome and tempting than ever. She knew who he was then…but who is he now?

Love that moment in life when realization and recognition hit- almost like the light bulb- lol

Cate Masters said...

Fun six - love the surprise ending.

Claire Robyns said...

rolf, I first thought she'd been caught in the shower by a stranger. Is she covering up a wet t-shirt moment instead?

Jean said...

LOL. No. The spigot came off in her hand when she tried to adjust the hot water. It came shooting out and she was trapped behind the water against the wall.

She screamed out the window for help and this gorgeous guy is the one who came to help her. Love the wet tee shirt idea, Claire! You have a grand imagination!!

Lindsay said...

Love the six. Bet he fixes more than the faucet.

Jean said...

LOL! You'll have to read the book to find out. Thanks for the comments, ladies.

Susanna Fraser said...

Fun scene! What a way to be reunited with someone you haven't seen in years!

Liana Brooks said...

He's so casual about it. Either he has great control, or he's not worth her time. I'm leaning toward great control (which I like in a man).

Interesting story you're cooking up here.

Eleri Stone said...

I love his reaction. So cool it makes me wonder.
