Six Sentence Sunday - Jess and Kyle's first meeting
Another six-sentence excerpt from my recently released 'His Leading Lady' with the first meeting between Jess and Kyle. This is a continuation from last week when Kyle told Jess her sister had disappeared, the week before rehearsals were due to start for the West End Show in which Lora had the lead role. He's trying to find her because they have a promotional event in two days' time.
He spoke to her as if she was a complete idiot and Jess’s hackles rose again. “Yes, Mr Drummond,” she replied in exactly the same tone. “I understand perfectly, and I wish I could help you, but I hope you now understand that I know even less about Lora’s whereabouts than you do.”
Kyle Drummond raised his eyebrows briefly and, despite her simmering anger, Jess smirked inwardly, knowing she’d scored a small victory. This arrogant man wasn’t accustomed to being spoken to in his own condescending manner. He was probably far more used to fawning starlets gushing ‘Yes, Mr Drummond – no, Mr Drummond’ at everything he said.
More next week.
