Six Sentence Sunday. Oh my first time was sooo good....

So, its time for the Six sentence Sunday. I had so much fun last week. The response to Written in Stone was so favourable, i have decided to stick with James and Cassie for this week's offering. Here is the blurb as a refresher.

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.

“It's funny isn't it, how many of us choose partners with whom we cannot share our inner thoughts.”
“I think...” She trembled at the intensity burning in his eyes. “We conjure up images of who we want our loved ones to be. Initial passion clouds our judgment. Their faults are shrouded in a veil we draw over them, and then, when that veil slips away, we're surprised, hurt even, and yet...we have no right because they haven't changed. Only our perception of them.”




Thank you for allowing me to share a little of Cassie and James with you all.

  13. Cassie is a wise woman made so through life's hard lessons. Oh that we could see through the veil of attraction and lust before we fall too far, too fast.

  19. Very perceptive. I hope there's a happy ending. Or he's not gay. lol

  20. LOL @ Edie!

    Definitely truth in that. I think we do it as a sort of self-preservation. We can be happy for as long as it takes for that veil to rip, and then once it does, we can blame it on the other person and cast our hurt feelings on them. Somehow that makes it easier to deal. Great six, Viviane!
