But today's your day to direct the story. Let's see what you'd write IF YOU WROTE ROMANCE...
SURRENDER UNDER FIRE
The most excitement they ever had was Friday night football and secret keggers at the saw mill. Not too secret, but Traz remembered being in college.
When the pretty blond showed up at the Dairy Queen on his day off, he said hello. Would have been impolite not to. All those booths were taken, and it seemed natural to ask if he could join her. They hit it off over a couple of baskets of steak fingers and extended lunch into the afternoon with a couple of chocolate-dipped dones. What's not to like about a woman not afraid to drip ice cream on her chin?
One thing lead to another and sure enough they ended up spending the entire afternoon together. They were walking across the street to the diner for a piece of his mom's pecan pie when the explosion shook the ground. A couple of car alarms went off. Fire shot into the sky and the smell of ash filled the air quicker than a May rain.
"I know, but this is about the fire. I've been tracking a man-- Sorry, Traz, I gotta get to that fire."
And before he could open his mouth again to tell her just who he was...she was gone. Gravel spinning under the tires of her Ford.
Before he followed, Traz stopped by his office, grabbing his weapon and the county-issued truck. Looked like his day-off had turned into a wildfire. He put in the calls. Got things started and grabbed the rest of his gear. He'd be lucky to see a bed for the next forty-eight hours and prayed the fire would be realtivly easy to contain.
When Toni found out who Traz was she didn't want any part of him by him being a sheriff. She has a past that she didn't want Traz to find out about. She new if Traz found out about her past she would be in jail. (Virginia)
Toni berated herself for not finding the Sheriff as soon as she got there. Traz easily made her forget everything. She sighed loudly as she thought about him.
Crazy aching head.
IF I only had skipped lunch today and gone straight to the Sherriff's office. But Toni, you'd still be in cuffs and behind bars.
How would she convince the bumpkin of a Sherriff to let her help with the investigation and vindicate herself? Toni stretched and dug under the seat. Thank you! She prayed Traz would forgive her, but the screwdriver was her only hope at this point.
Come back Friday, January 27th for some more fun with Toni & Traz.
Will they get together for their Happily Ever After?
