Sally and Izzy’s relationship was heating up, until she got a little snippy on their last phone call. This week we’re writing to a picture prompt, only 300 words. Return to TUESDAY TALES for more great snippets.
Sally smoothed her hair back behind her ears, unsure how to begin. She looked at the ground, then back up. She searched Izzy’s face. Usually he appeared so laid back and easy going. Right now he appeared fidgety, slipping his hands in and out of his pockets and shifting his weight from one foot to the other.
Becca looked back and forth between the two. “I think you two need to talk. Without little sister hanging around. I’ll finish unloading the truck.” She eased away. “Nice to finally meet you,” she called before she turned and went back to work.
“You too,” Sally replied. She hesitated and looked up and down the tree lined street surrounding the square. “So, I never liked the taste of crow, but I need a giant serving of it now.”
Izzy stopped squirming and looked intently into her eyes. “How’s that?”
“I owe you an apology. I was a snot when you called me Monday night.”
“Yeah, I probably wouldn’t argue with that one very hard.” Fortunately the grin on his face showed that there was more tease than anger in his words.
“And right now,” Sally continued, “after you didn’t answer last night, and then I saw the cute young girl helping you out, I jumped to conclusions.”
“I could tell. I could see it in your face.” Izzy laughed. “That kind of made up for you being snippy with me. It was totally worth it.”
He stepped closer and cupped her face in the palms of his hands. “The reason I didn’t answer was because I’d left my phone in the house while I was loading up the truck last night.” He dropped a quick kiss on her nose. “You’re not the only one that had to work this week.”
