Happy Friday, everyone. I hope it's been a great week for you all! For today's Christian Fiction Friday post, here's a snippet from my third Kennedy Stern novel, which I'm currently editing (and I've got the eye-strain headache to prove it!).
She’d never seen him lash out. Never heard him yell. Never saw him angry.
It made her question how well she knew him to begin with. When they weren’t talking about their studies or arguing over a piece of literature, he would ask all kinds of questions about Kennedy’s life. Listen to her stories about growing up in Yanji. Find out every detail he could about her parents. He knew so much about her past. What did she know about his? He had seven sisters, a whole gaggle of nieces and nephews, and an extended family that could fill an entire floor of a New York hotel. But how useful was that information?
Another song came on the radio. She knew this one. Rocket Man by Elton John. It only reminded her how disappointed she was to miss tonight’s musical. Only reminded her how you can be half a foot away from someone you care about, maybe even love, yet still find yourself drowning in an ocean full of isolation.
