A Lie Unraveled
Saturday, June 21, 2014
Here we are again for another week of Saturday Spankings. Today for my eight lines I'm going to share a snippet from my new Corbin's Bend novella Leading The Way.
In this excerpt Erin has been asked to participate in a weekly bowling league. She dresses appropriately but when her friends arrive to pick her up, one of them suggest she might like to bring a change of clothes.
“Am I too casual for bowling?” Erin asked.
“No, sweetie, no!” Jen said. “But if we finish early we might see what else there is to do in Boulder.”
“Sorry?” Did she just hear right?
“Oh fuck it,” Jen said. “We only go bowling for one quick game and then we have a bit of fun.”
“You lie about where you are?” Erin said.
“No, we don’t lie. That’s why we play the one game. So if they ask did we have fun at bowling? We can answer honestly, yes, we did. Who won? Carol or Sienna. See? We’re not actually lying.”
