Greetings, Weekend Writing Warriors! These are the next 10 sentences in my contemporary short story about a woman who chooses to even the score. Marian’s story continues with her meeting Todd Eccleston on the stage.
Todd’s eyes widened when he saw her. She smiled, and he responded with the lazy, sexy smile he usually saved for his next conquest. He offered her his hand, and drew her intimately against his side, behind the glass and chrome podium.
“I have great pleasure in introducing to you Marian Diamond, this year’s most worthy runner-up.”
The applause was polite.
She paused, as he walked off the stage.
“Good evening, ladies and gentlemen.” Her voice had always been her best feature, clear and musical. Her words carried effortlessly through the hall.
“It is with great honour, this evening, that I introduce to you the 2015 winner of the Best Campaign Award.”
