Weekend Writing Warriors 8 Sentences~Crossfire (Addicted, book 2) by Brandi Salazar

About the scene: This takes place after Jessica's BFF Amber suffers a hormonal breakdown and she is giving her her own idea of a special gift to cheer her up.  

“I need you to get a carton of ice cream—”

“Mint chocolate chip!” Amber interrupted, sitting up straighter. 

“Mint chocolate chip,” I repeated. “A bag of Fritos to replace the old one.” I thumbed behind me and Carmen’s eyes followed the movement, narrowing with annoyance when he spotted Amber happily munching away at his stash. “And a box of Tampax, size super, cotton, not that synthetic crap.” 

Carmen froze and his attention snapped back to me, his eyes wide and fearful. I grinned, acting oblivious to his discomfort. “Got all that?” I asked when he made no move to blink or respond or even breathe. 

He swallowed audibly and blinked several times as he struggled to regain his composure. “Ye—” He choked on the word a little and cleared his throat to try again. “Yeah, I got it,” he said, his voice strained.

“’Kay, thanks!” I gently nudged him out the door and closed it behind him. 

“You are one wicked broad,” Amber said, her face aglow with pleasure. 

“Good present?” I asked, skipping back to the bed. 

“The best.” 


Crossfire is slated for release August 2013. Check out the book that started it all, Addicted to Magic!

  1. OMG, I am totally cracking up! Send a man on a mission for Tampax and his throat will close up every time. At leas it it's pads they can say the dog's in heat. LMAO. Priceless.

  2. Poor guy, nothing they hate worse than being sent to obtain personal feminine products. Fun snippet!

  3. Oh my, gave me a chuckle. One time, a coworker told us at work that he'd gone out the night before to get his wife's fiminine supplies. He came home with the wrong kind. He went back out to get the ones with "wings". The other guys chided him pretty hard, but he told them all that once she'd informed him that Angels needed wings to fly, he chose not to challenge that statement on ANY level. :-)

    Good snippet. :-)

  4. Oh, that poor man! Too funny. Not super absorbent!
