Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors! My erotic romantic comedy, Almost Perfect, releases on Friday, January 23rd. I’ve added two shorts stories to this enhanced version of the novella, giving more exploits of my hero and heroine.
And today I’m giving you 8 sentences from short story #1, “An Almost Perfect Meeting,” with only a little creative punctuation. The setting is a showing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Pam, who is in the shadowcast, needs another actor. Roger has just backed into her:
She’d been talking to a guy in costume seated at the end of the row, and he’d practically upended her into his lap. Before he could utter a word of apology, though, she straightened and her face lit up as if he were the answer to her prayers.
“Thank God.” She shoved a pair of black plastic glasses onto his face and said, “I need a Brad.”
Had she lost her boyfriend? He shook his head. “I’m Roger.”
“I don’t care if your name’s Elvis, you’re Brad tonight!”
An Almost Perfect Meeting:
Does the right place and the wrong time equal the almost perfect couple?
When Pam Kimball’s plans to play Janet at a Rocky Horror Picture Show get derailed, she’s determined to go on with the show. She commandeers the first guy she sees—a tall, sexy, geeky stranger—to be her Brad. The guy knows nothing about the show, but plays along, stunning her with a kiss in the middle of the performance. Pam feels his interest while they dance and decides to make a bold next move.
Roger Ware’s come for a midnight showing of a classic movie, only to find a cult classic playing instead. To make it worse, he’s dragged onto the stage by a forceful brunette who won’t take “no” for an answer. Not that Roger wants to say no after one impulsive kiss gets him fired up for more. When Pam invites herself over after the show, her seduction is clear, but will it continue once Roger reveals one embarrassing secret?
