Theme Thursday (2)

Theme Thursday is a weekly event hosted by Reading Between the Pages. The rules are:

1. A theme will be posted each week (on Thursday’s)
2. Select a conversation/snippet/sentence from the current book you are reading
3. Mention the author and the title of the book along with your post
4. It is important that the theme is conveyed in the sentence (you don’t necessarily need to have the word)
Ex: If the theme is KISS; your sentence can have “They kissed so gently” or “Their lips touched each other” or “The smooch was so passionate”

This will give us a wonderful opportunity to explore and understand different writing styles and descriptive approaches adopted by authors.

This week's theme is TOUCH

My entry comes from my current read, Diamond Playgirls by Daaimah S. Poole, et al, pg. 257-258:

He knocked three times before she opened the door. Immediately he stepped in , holding a greasy brown paper bag that smelled of fried chicken. Without even asking, he hugged her as if she were his long-lost cousin. The bag made a rattling sound as their bodies pressed against it. "Heeeey!" He smiled, rocking her slightly.

  1. Oh, The thought of fried chicken in a greasy brown bag is making me hungry. I would skip the hug and get straight to the EATING :)
