Six Sentence Sunday


Welcome back!  If you're here for the first time, be sure to check out all the other Six Sentence Sunday excerpts from a variety of very talented authors.

This week's segment needs a set up.

This a continuation of the trans-level lift scene between Mitch and Tija (with a capital Trouble).  Tija doesn't want what happened in Houston to stay in Houston. When Mitch doesn't respond as she hopes, she presses the issue, and the lift doors open to leave Mitch looking like the sexual aggressor to a very disapproving commanding officer.
_____________________________________________

“A word in private, Lieutenant,” the captain growled.

Mitch walked off the unit without looking at Tija. He was starting to think of her as his own personal Calamity Jane. Every time she was near him, questionable things happened. Sexual things happened. Usually through no fault of his own--usually.
