Here is peek into After the Sunset
They arrived at the beach and lay their blanket down in what Amber called ‘the perfect spot. Kim just rolled her eyes; she really didn’t see why this spot was better than any other place on the beach. They got settled and enjoyed their day lazily laying in the sun and people watching. Kim thought she noticed the lifeguard glancing in their direction. She was sure he must be looking at Amber, because she was just a simple looking girl. She was five foot three, light brown wavy hair, hazel eyes, and a small frame. She felt her breasts were too small, and she hated that her body really didn't have any curves. At nineteen, she hoped her body would've been more developed. She watched out of the corner of her eye the beautiful blonde lifeguard scan the crowd as she pulled her hair up into a bun.
“Amber, I think that blonde lifeguard over there likes you, he keeps looking over here,” Kimberly said, as she nudged her friend out of her sleepy state.
“Who? What? Where?” Amber replied eagerly.
“Over there.” Kim pointed just as the beautiful blonde turned his head and caught her pointing at him. Kim hoped and prayed that the earth would open up and swallow her whole.
“Um, Kimberly, I think the hot lifeguard likes you.” Amber giggled.
“I... I don't think so. No one's ever interested in me.”
“Kim, stop it. You are beautiful. For some reason you have never understood that.”
Kim rolled her eyes at her best friend. “There is no way he would be interested in me, just look at him. He could have any girl here.”
“Yes, he could, but he seems to have his eyes on you.”
My personal goal is 20,000 words and to have this completed by the end of February! You can watch my progress in the side bar.
I hope you all have a safe and happy New Year!!
