Six Sentence Sunday #23!

Happy, happy Sunday, my friends! Thanks for stopping by during this busy holiday season! :) Over the last few weeks I've been sharing bits and pieces from the novel I'm working on called Love Notes. So now you all know a little more about my heroine, Janelle Webber, and her quirky friends. But I think it's only right I introduce you to my hero too. His name is Sam Jacobson, a slightly nerdy and terribly sweet high school music teacher who I have a gigantic crush on. 

Sam’s smile widened when his eyes landed on room 102. The squeaks and squawks of unseasoned musicians greeted him long before. Thick wooden shelves wrapped around the perimeter of the room, containing case after case of instruments. Music stands screeched against the floor. A cowbell clanged followed by sparks of laughter. The low blast of an out-of-tune tuba reverberated.

Sam took a deep breath, inhaling the musty scent of velvet from the instrument cases and the sharp tang of valve oil. It was strangely comforting.

Isn't he cute? :D I love my Sam. Okay, so that's all for now. Hope you have a wonderful day and tune in next week!

  1. What a great description and use of the senses. Music, obviously is aural, but I love how you've worked in texture and scent. Great job.
