My snippet this week is from Run for the Roses.
As he drove, Val spent more than his usual amount of time glancing in the rearview mirror. It didn’t appear any particular car was following him. Still Val couldn’t relax. In fact, the closer he got to the airport, the more Val’s stomach twisted in knots. He wasn’t sure if it was sheer excitement at seeing Wyatt again after a few days or apprehension that he’d have to admit someone might be watching him.
The airport was its usual mess of travelers, and Val was happy he’d left right after work, even if it did mean he was going to be several hours early. With the truck parked, Val found a place to wait and sent Wyatt a text telling him where he was.
At long last Wyatt’s plane landed. Val waited impatiently for Wyatt and couldn’t keep the silly grin off his face when Wyatt finally walked toward Val. Wyatt strode up to Val, took his hand and, holding it low by his hip, pulled Val close.
“It’s good to see you,” Val said in a hushed voice.
Wyatt urged Val forward and nodded at the exit. “Are you parked there?”
“Hmm, it’s going to be even better to feel you.” Wyatt gave Val’s hand another squeeze, then put his palm flat between Val’s shoulder blades for a few paces as they walked, before letting his hand drop to his side. “Is everything all right?” He asked as they approached Val’s truck.
“It is now.”
