Welcome to Hump Day Hook Kook's style.
Today my hook comes from my novel Without Saying A Word. In this scene, Rhean confesses to Laura something that she would NEVER have guessed.
“Laura, there is something I need to say, and for me to tell you this, well, it's very difficult. But I need to be straight with you.”
Laura shook her body, and stepped away from him with a frown on her face.
“You are going to tell me you are gay,” she blurted out wildly, pre-empting his speech.
“I had a feeling this was coming. How could you do this to me now? Well, this is going to make life incredibly awkward for us.” She wrung her hands in despair and humiliation.
Rhean pulled her back into his arms, holding her tight despite her struggles
“What on earth are you talking about? I'm not gay—far, far from it. Would I kiss you like this if I was interested in men?” His mouth crushed hers, claiming her as his own, branding her.
So what is it you have to tell me then?” she asked, still reeling from the dominance of his kiss.
“That I have never made love to anyone.” His voice was calm, his gaze steady as his cheeks flushed crimson.
“Let me get this straight. You mean you have never had sex? That you are a...?” Laura's voice trailed off and she was at a loss for words. It was rather a bizarre statement to have made—especially in the gallery with its echoing atmosphere. Anyone could have heard, and especially the staff.
That he trusted her enough to tell her a very intimate secret was flattering, but Laura now regarded Rhean in a whole new light.
“Not at all, and yes, I am a virgin; a 34-year-old virgin.”
