Onward to another paragraph from one of my WIPs Last Dance: Watching Rocco, Joey is trying to get up the nerve to ask him to dance. But Joey sees the ghost of Donna Summer, which apparently heralds a seizure.

This is the last line from Last Dance #11: I got slowly to my feet; he rose with me. “I can take the bus.”

“You don’t have to take the bus!” Rocco pulled a set of car keys from his pocket. “My car’s right there.” He pointed beyond the hedges to the street.

Was he trying to impress Viola by being kind or…me? I suppose I should have worried his nice guy façade would fall away once we got away from the party, but Viola had left me with him—her be nice meant she wanted him to stay with me and make sure I was okay.

    I don’t know why hurt/comfort is so appealing, but it is. I’m getting drawn into this couple’s story. Rocco seems like a sweetie…looking forward to more of them both!

    Argh, the agony of trying to decipher someone’s motivations when you like them. 🙂

    I wonder what in his past has made him so mistrustful.

    Poor guy, so mistrustful. You have to wonder why.

    Something must have made him wary. I wonder what it is.

    I really hope his wariness isn’t going to become valid. Poor guy.

    Viola clearly holds more sway than the nice guy… fingers crossed that nothing goes wrong.

    That ‘be nice’ is interesting…lots to think about.
