It's a Fact...Couples Fight #SixSunday

{Note: If you're looking for A Hero's Blog Hop July 27-31,  please scroll down to the previous blog or click this link: Joya's Link, A Hero's Blog Hop} Thanks!


Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday: Where writers share six sentences from their published or unpublished books.

Couples fight, right? It’s part of figuring out who they are together. I’d love to hear your view : are disagreements a necessary part of relationships?

In this snippet from my debut novel BENEATH THE SURFACE, Brooke offers to flush out the villain by using herself as a decoy. But there’s no way Garrett, a police officer, is going to let her endanger herself.

  “You’d be the bait?” Garrett practically spat the question at Brooke.
   She looked into his fiery eyes. “You want to find your cousin and I want to find out who hurt Linda and Jeff. Why would it be a problem?”
   “Uh-uh,” he said.

Well written, Joya! "practically spat" "fiery eyes".

Couples do fight, and your writing akes it obvious that that is what's happening here.

Great six. :-)

Paula Martin said...

I can see both points of view here - good six!

Nancy Weeks said...

Great passion, Joya!
Every couple bickers/squabbles/fight/argues/disagree. It's how you do all those things that either strengthen the relationship or destroy it.

Enjoyed your six Joya!
As for disagreements or fights between couples...if you don't have the passion to fight, do you have the passion for other things? lol If you were so much alike that you didn't disagree, what fun would that be?

Brave girl. Good six.

Joya said...

@Teresa So true about couples fighting!

@Paula- Yeah! They're both right. Gonna be a long fight. LOL!!

@Nancy-Thanks! I agree, that fights can strengthen or destroy a relationship. Sooo true!

@Christine-LOL, LOL! Exactly. Passionate fights lead to passionate make ups, right? :)

@A.S.- Thanks for calling her brave! She is. :)
