Scenes I’d Like to See in a Romance #6

The hero is driving his convertible sports car on a country road when he sees a woman in a white dress running up ahead.

He drives up along side her and says: “Lady, why are you jogging in a wedding dress?”

“I’m not jogging. I’m a runaway bride.”

“You do understand don’t you that you don’t literally have to be running to be a runaway bride?”

“I know that but sometimes I think God is a pantser making me do things that don’t make a lot of sense.” 

“Hop in and I’ll give you a ride somewhere.” 

“If I get in your car, you’ll have to marry me.” 

“That would be inconvenient.” 

“I’m a runaway bride, this has nothing to do with a marriage of convenience.”

“That’s not what I meant. I’m still married to the last runaway bride I picked up.”


  1. Breaking the fourth wall. Needs to be done.

  2. Hi Marlena:

    I don’t know what “breaking the fourth wall” refers to. Is it a literary illusion?”


  3. Hi Liz:

    I’m glad you like these scenes. My whole WIP, “Characters in a Romance” is made up of scenes like these. It gives me hope. : )
