Six Sentence Sunday - On The List

Six Sentence Sunday is back for more...

This week, from L. A. Witt, a nibble of On The List, which comes out today from Amber Allure. This is the third and final book in the Changing Plans series (the previous books are Getting off the Ground and Infinity Pools).

Derek's parents have dropped the bomb that they're not coming to his and Elliott's wedding:

If anything, instead of bringing him into the family, tomorrow would signify a greater divide between them and me. Like I was marrying out of my own family.

I wanted to tell myself I’d never have second thoughts about marrying Elliott, but here I was, in the eleventh hour, with the reality of my parents’ rejection sinking in fast. It shouldn’t have mattered—these were their issues, not mine—but it did. It mattered, and it hurt.

Here it was, the night before the wedding I never thought I’d have, and I’d never felt more alone in my life.

Want to play along? It’s fun and easy!
