Six Sentence Sunday Virgin

Welcome back, all you happy campers,

What - two posts in one week? Ha ha - well I have decided to join those in the know and participate in Six Sentence Sunday. Oh , my first time. I hope it won't hurt. So, what shall six sentence about? I think Written in Stone. quick blurb to set the scene....

Dumped five days before her wedding, Cassandra Hall decides not to waste the
honeymoon. She sets off to London. What was supposed to be her dream week turns into a nightmare time of introspect, self-doubt. Then she meets James, literally falling at his feet in an attempt to save his Afghan hound from colliding head on with the traffic.
James is witty, charming, too good-looking and also—not available. Despite this,
Cassie is captivated by him. What follows is a week of fun, companionship and a bonding Cassie has never experienced.
James, sensing Cassie’s unhappiness, goes out of his way to make up for her jerk of a fiancĂ©’s rejection. He is drawn to her vulnerability—something he finds disturbing, threatening to shatter all he thought he knew about himself.
Cassie, he senses, is falling in love with him. He ought to back away but cannot.
Cassie bravely makes her true feelings known and when he rejects her, he knows he has broken her heart. He is left confused, guilty because…James has a secret.

Cassandra Hall stared across the park. A fresh autumn breeze teased at her shoulders,
cool fingers determined to infiltrate the gap between neck and coat. Hastily, Cassie pulled
up her collar.
The day was September mellow. Trees whispered to one another, shedding their
tiresome load of brown and russet, mocking the aged park attendant as he struggled to keep
up with the deepening blanket of leaves. A gentle sky, cream and blue-tinged, held a warm
sun. The rays danced upon her knees, and yet Cassie shivered. Her toes felt numb inside her
new, wildly expensive boots, but then she was numb all over.
