Six Sentence Sunday - All The King's Horses

Man, it's Sunday again already. And only a week left until July. o.O  This year is flying.

Anyway, this week's snippet comes from one of Lauren's books for a change: my current work-in-progress, All The King's Horses. Dustin and Amy are at a country bar, enjoying a slow dance, and things are heating up just a wee bit...
I wondered if she lifted her chin on purpose, or if she did it subconsciously like I’d lowered my own, and when her eyes flicked from mine to my lips and back, there was no pretending we didn’t know where this was going. My mouth watered with the anticipation of tasting hers. The music’s slow tempo emphasized the rapid beat of my heart, and I didn’t care if we shouldn’t be doing this or why.  
Her eyes slid closed, and a second later, mine followed suit. I moved in closer until her breath whispered across my lips.
And a screaming steel guitar startled us apart.
Want to play along? It’s fun and easy!
