Six Sentence Sunday ~ Wild West Weekend ~ 1.2 (#sixsunday @6_Sunday)

#1 of Six Sentences over six weeks from 'Wild West Weekend'

     Showered and dressed in jeans, a white tank top and loose fitting tan safari shirt, she clipped her long hair back. Studying her reflection one way and then the other in the mirror, she double checked that everything was proper. Granted, she knew she was on a ranch and that the moment she walked out the door she probably wouldn’t look so put together anymore, but she couldn’t help it. Years of being in the public eye, needing to be presentable and checking and double checking her appearance was a force of habit. She was pretty sure Dak wouldn’t care one way or the other how she looked—he’d most likely rather see her naked—but she liked to look nice.
     As she reached for the doorknob, a sudden bout of nervousness hit her.
