In honor of The Key to Charlotte tying for first place in the Inspirational Short category of the International Digital Awards (IDA), I decided this is a good week to bring out a brand new excerpt.
“Is it hard to learn to play a guitar?”
Zakaria shrugged and picked up the instrument again. “It wasn’t for me. Of course, I had a friend once who struggled to learn to play. He finally gave up and took piano lessons. He had no trouble learning that and is a great pianist, now.” He rose and moved to sit on her left side. “You want to try playing my guitar? I can help you learn a couple of chords, if you want.”
Charlotte nodded, accepting the guitar. The smooth wood under her fingers felt more right than any other instrument she’d ever touched. The metallic scent of the strings was a little weird, but she didn’t find it unpleasant.
Zakaria took her left hand and placed it near the top of the guitar’s neck. His touch sent a shiver through her.
Was it OK to be attracted to someone she’d just met?
