Six Sentence Sunday #15

Continuing the new scene with Neal and his best friend, Sandy. It picks up from a scene that I included as one of my blog pages, entitled Sandy and Neal before the wedding. This refers to Sandy's wedding to Sophie. It takes places several years before Neal proposes to April.

In the scene, Sandy and Neal have traveled to Crescent City, California--Sandy's hometown. Sandy gets up early the morning of the ceremony and asks Neal to come with him to the beach so he can "settle his head." Neal brings his guitar, which he's planning to use at the ceremony (unbeknownst to Sandy). He's just started guitar lessons so he's not very good yet.

At this point, the two guys have been friends for 10 or 11 years. They're in a rock band together.

They spend a short while at the beach then go to Frank's Diner, the local gathering spot. Incidentally, the diner is where Neal met April. Frank directs the guys to a booth and says he'll have Donna bring some coffee.
Donna filled both mugs, told Neal to meet her back at the diner as soon as the ceremony ended, winked at him then sashayed away.

Sandy shrugged. “Might as well get married because whenever I’m out with you, women don’t even see me.”

“I can’t help it if I’m a babe magnet. Anyway, you’re old enough to settle down now.”

Sandy kicked him under the table.
Six Sentence Sunday brings together a bunch of creative writers who share excerpts from various works in progress or published stuff. I'm always impressed by how imaginative they are! Stop by some of the sites, laugh, maybe shed a tear, feel the heat of a romantic moment.

Everyone who visited my site today, thank you  :)
