Scene from Chase and Seduction – Reno and Chase are spread out on a blanket by the lake.

Reno laughed. “What’s so terrible about French food?”

“Snails,” Chase replied, his eyes still closed.

“Have you ever tried them?”

“Yep. The first cook I hired wanted to expand my grocery list. Didn’t work. He lasted about two weeks, and I sent him packing.”

Reno trailed a stem of tall grass across his chest. “What did he do?”

Chase swatted at the grass. “The fool tried to stuff a ribeye steak with some kind of pigeon.”


He propped himself up on one elbow, his brow furrowed. “Yeah, can you believe that? The guy was nuttier than a squirrel turd.”

    Boy, that says it all, doesn’t it? Perfect characterization.

    Oh, yes! I must remember the “nuttier than a squirrel turd” line for just the right moment. LOL Great characterization of Chase. Reminds me, for some reason, of Brad Pitt’s character in Thelma and Louise. Great six!
