TUESDAY TALES - RIDE

 Welcome! Today I'm posting another snippet from my WIP in my football series, First & Ten. This is the Pete Sebastian, Coach Bass, story. Scroll down to return to Tuesday Tales.

                                       COACH BASS  
Pete shaved with care, thinking about the stats he got from Carl about Jo Parker. Age: 33, single, never married, B.A. degree, magna cum laude. That she was beautiful, curvy and classy he could figure out for himself. So, I’m a little older than she is. So what? Ten years. Today –that’s nothing. He smiled as the razor glided through the thick coating of cream on his face. 
Words from his daughter, Mikki –the fashionista—echoed in his head. Dad, gotta dress better or you’ll never get a date. He’d let her pick out clothes and show him how to put together the best suit, shirt and tie combination. With his light brown hair and hazel eyes, Mikki would have chosen green, his best color.
He shrugged the shirt over his broad shoulders and picked a dark gold tie from the rack. He pulled on khaki pants pressed to knife-sharp creases. A forest green wool jacket completed the outfit. He looked in the full length mirror as he combed his thick hair. Never cared what I wore to work. But now there’s a goddess in the office next to me.
Mikki would approve. He smiled as he plucked his keys from the ceramic bowl filled with loose change. He entered the front office section of the stadium, whistling. Blood rushed through his veins.
Coach Bass was feeling sexy. Jo’s office was around the next bend.
Feminine laughter greeted his ears, making his grin wider. But the smile melted into a frown when his eyes beheld the scene before him. Jo, at her desk, a pen in her mouth, gazed up, laughing with Devon Drake, running back and womanizer.  Pete followed Dev’s gaze, which rested on Jo’s cleavage.          

Shit! He’s gonna take her for a ride. Coach Bass scowled at the young player as he flirted with Jo. Fuck. Twenty-four hours and I’m already too late.

Mmm-Mmm, I do love this handsome head coach!

The Coach sounds great...And I have a feeling (or more a hope) that Jo is too smart to be taken in by a womanizer. :D

I have the feeling the coach has got a little homework in front of him, but will score in the end.

Oh, I really like this. He's all male and full of life in a good way. Now he has to deal with that dang football player. Go get 'em, coach! http://flossiebentonrogers.com

I LOVe the little things abt today's post. The way his daughter's opinion mattered and how he's taking it to hear. His nervousness, his disappointment as well as the way you've used the prompt.

loving the ages of the characters and that the hero has a daughter who wants him to date and is helping him. Hopefully, the heroine can see that the player is a player!

Oh I'm liking Coach Bass. And I don't think he's 24 hours too late. She's too smart to fall for a player. I'm rooting for the coach!

mmm- I'm betting on the coach

morgan said...

Oh no! Surely Jo can recognize a player when she sees one. (Biting nails.)

I wonder what he'll do to get the player away from her.
