He crushed her against him. His lips touched hers. So soft. Like butterfly wings, and sweet as flower nectar.
Outside, the storm rattled the hurricane shutters protecting the greenhouse. The rain came down in torrents. Within their private cocoon, another storm raged inside her. Jack’s breath was warm on her cheek.
She wanted the moment to last forever.
The desk light flickered on, went out, then burned steadily. Jack pulled back. Still lost in the sweetness and wonder of the kiss, she swayed against him.
“I should not have told you that,” he said.
Her heart plunged. “You didn’t mean what you said?”
We’re new to the Audacity, the sound program we use for our audio recordings, and to sound effects in general. These are our thoughts on the current episode.
Recording. We recorded this segment in one take, after three practice runs with the microphone off.
Technical. No technical difficulties this week. YAY for us!
Comments. We’ve rearranged the setting of our recording booth. We thought we could use less padding on the table top but this week’s recording had excess noise, so we’re going to go back to what seems like an excessive amount of deadening material.
Story changes. Minor changes to the written version this week. The sentence structure and words worked well in the switch from text to audio.
