Sweet Saturday Sample of "Now and Forever 1, a Love Story" - Contest!

This excerpt is taken from Mac and Callie's first weekend together, Thanksgiving weekend.  Leave a comment and your email addy and be entered in a drawing for a copy of "Sunny Days, Moonlit Nights"!

Mac made popcorn and found a chick flick on TV. Callie, curious about his reaction to such a movie, snuggled into his shoulder while he draped his arm around her as they watched the romantic movie. Mac found himself getting caught up in the plot and characters.
"Maybe all chick flicks aren‘t so bad," he observed.
Callie cried at the sad parts so Mac hugged her and gave her his handkerchief.

"Women must look pretty silly to men, sometimes," Callie said, drying her eyes.
"You might say that."
"Men look pretty silly when they start screaming at the TV during sports," she countered.

"Oh yeah?"
Mac tossed a throw pillow at her. She threw it back. Things escalated into a full-fledged pillow fight. Mac retreated to the bedroom. Callie walked into a pillow ambush. She went down,
laughing, but jumped up again. Callie dove for the bed. Mac followed her. She pummeled him with pillows. He laughed and grabbed her wrists, subduing her.

"Give up, Dean?" Callie sneered.
"Never! Never give up, never give in!" He hollered.
She struggled to pull away and was surprisingly strong, but he overpowered her easily. Mac pulled her closer to him, winding his arms around her and falling back on the bed. She fell on top
of him, pretending to be ferocious, but didn‘t fool him as she melted into his arms.

Pillow fight! Somehow, they always lead to romance, don't you think? Good job.

Any guy who would sit through a chick flick and follow up with a pillow fight is a keeper! Nice.
