Six Sentence Sunday

Welcome.  This is another six from my upcoming release, Embezzled Love.  Just to catch you up...Cassie and Evan have moved in together after meeting on an Internet dating site.  The road has been rocky, and things are coming to a head. She's worked hard to get where she is in the insurance industry, and now she fears her job is in jeopardy.  Here's today's six.

Palpitations skipped thought her chest, and the black pit of depression beckoned after so long. All her adult life, she'd worked hard to get where she was in business, and everything couldn't end with an announcement at a stupid meeting. The least Takeda could have done was let people know if they were among those making an early departure. Not knowing was akin to having an axe hanging over your head. She didn't know whether to volunteer for the farewell party committee planning group or wait to be invited to one. Her sense of dread grew like a wart from a virus.

Now head back to Six Sentence Sunday and follow some more links.  :)  Thanks for coming, oh, and Embezzled Love will be available soon from Books We Love.

Anyone who's worked for a company in this day and age is familiar with that feeling of trepidation!

Oh, gawd, I felt that way every day for eight years. So glad I left advertising! (I'm gonna crawl under the sheets and fight the flashbacks, now.)
