100 Word Challenge for Grown-UpsJulia’s Place has a 100-Word Challenge going. These are always fun opportunities to write, especially for someone like me, who has a tendency to be verbose.

This week’s challenge theme is “The Flip Side.” Here’s my entry:

One of his students, a girl, lingers at his side, batting her lashes. “Thanks for the lesson, Neville.” She sucks a breath that makes her chest puff. “If there’s ever anything I can do…?”

“Just practise,” Neville says, before sending her on her way.

Beside him, Ross watches the girl go, too. “How do you do it, mate?” he asks. “Everyone loves you!”

Neville turns and looks at him, his friend with the luscious smile and the eyes so deep and blue he thinks he could drown in them. Then, he sniffs. “Not everyone.”

This little support piece for Fearless has been bouncing around in my head since I started the story’s initial plotting, back in October 2011. You can be the judge if it adheres properly to the “Flip Side” theme. (Hint: It’s not so hard to see.)

Hope you enjoyed it!
