Wordy Wednesday from fellow Author Heather Gray!

Hi guys, I just participated in my first "Wordy Wednesday" in which Author Heather Gray hosts on her blog. You can find more of them here:

Here is mine for today:*Version*=1&*entries*=0

From the novel Everlasting:

“Hi.” He flashed perfect white teeth at me and shook my hand. My breath caught at the coldness of his skin, and pain shot through my fingers from the strength of his grip. An awkward silence shuffled between us. “Well, I’m gonna go finish my game. Hope to see you around again sometime.”
“Me too, same here.” I pulled a strand of hair from my eyes, flicking sand in my face. My face, neck, and ears burned again. I silently thanked God for the color the sun had put into me that day—maybe he wouldn’t see the disturbing, gross splotches that had overtaken my face, itching like a contagious disease.
“C’mon, let’s go.” He whistled and called to the dog, then spun around, giving me one last look before he disappeared from view around the Ice Cream Shack.
My heart raced and clamored against my chest, its incessant loudness urging me to release it—to follow him. It shocked me how quickly I fell in love. Me, the shy, low-self-esteem girl who vowed that whenever I entered into a relationship I would take it slow, and I would seek out any warning signals, using them as an excuse to bail early, if need be. But this…this was exhilarating, and it took a while for my heart to return to its proper place.
