First contact – Obsession daily snippet

Launch day tomorrow…. are you excited? I am 🙂

Today’s daily snippet is where Josh first meets Suki, in a busy cafe. She spills her hot drink over his hand:

While I politely refused the ice—the froth hadn’t been enough to scald me—she muttered into her phone. “Hiya. Yes, I’m on my way. I’ll be there in five minutes. I just, ah…got held up. Got to go, see you soon.”

I don’t want to go home.

“That bad, huh?”

Too late, I realised she hadn’t actually said it out loud. I’d picked up on her thought as clearly as if she’d spoken the words. Trying to cover for my mistake, I explained,  “I thought you said something, maybe I misheard.”

Worry flickered in her eyes. “Are you sure you don’t need that ice?”
