The table was adjacent to the retail corner where gift-boxed coffee machines tied with thick red bows filled the shelves, along with red-and-pink cellophane-wrapped coffee mugs loaded with chocolates.

Glancing at him, she noticed he’d grown a bit of scruff overnight, very sexy.

I couldn’t help but notice the faded outline of “honeymooning” on their car’s back window.

She emerged with a handsome man in a bright yellow tuxedo and slick dark brown hair.

Clad in bright yellow-and-pink dresses with shoulder-length blond wigs, I almost mistook them for real girls.

So weird, re yellow and pink. This is a small part of what I was re-editing/reading of my WIP (for the 20th time?): She looked like an Easter egg, wearing a pink-coral blazer and skirt paired with a canary-yellow blouse. (She has blonde hair too)

Studying him from across the room, she voiced this to Simone as they stared at his tan smooth skin, taut lean muscles, and thick athletic thighs clad in denim.

My eyes widen as I stare at the worker’s unmoving, plastic face – he’s a mannequin!
