Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts is a weekly meme hosted by my blogger wife, Lexxie, @(un)Conventional Bookviews. It's a way to highlight a book using quotes that revolve around food and/or drinks. Every Thursday, post a line or two...or heck, a whole paragraph, that spoke to you in some way using food or drinks. *wink* Don't forget to link up!
My pick this week for Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts is from:
Past Imperfect by Alison G. Bailey
I picked this particular scene because it made me laugh! =)
She huffed, blowing her bangs up and off her forehead. "They didn't include any forks," she said, slightly annoyed.
Swallowing a piece of my sesame chicken, I said, "Use the chopsticks."
Scrunching up her eyebrows she looked at the two sticks as if a person would need to be a rocket scientist to figure out how to use them. She tentatively picked them up and peeled the paper away that they were wrapped in. I continued to eat while watching her out of the corner of my eye as she tried to position the chopsticks correctly between her fingers and attempted to pick up a piece of chicken. I felt her eyes on me, watching as I popped another piece in my mouth and then picked up some rice and vegetables with ease. She attempted using the prehistoric eating tools a couple of more times without success. She was stubborn and determined to master them herself.
Unable to keep the smile off my face and the laughter out of my voice, I turned to her and asked, "Mabry, you've never used chopsticks before, have you?" Sarcasm flowed through each word.
She narrowed her eyes at me. "Smartass."
"I'm a smartass with a belly full of Chinese," I said patting my stomach. "It's delicious too. Gimme." I extended my hand, flexing my fingers for her to hand over the chopsticks. She looked back and forth between my hand and the sticks before finally slapping them into my palm. "Turn around."
"Turn around?" she asked confused.
"Yes, so your back is to me."
"What are you going to do?" She sounded alarmed.
"I'm going o show you how to feed yourself. Just trust me and turn around." She did and I moved in closer to her.
My eyes closed while I breathed in a little more of her. I caught an unobstructed view of the very top of her tits and my hand went slack. I felt Mabry jerk around and then yelp.
"Ugh, I think a snow pea went down my bra," she said snapping me out of my haze.
"Snow pea. In. My. Bra."
Lucky snow pea.
