Teaser Thursday— Starting Over Again

Hello guys! How do you feel about the easing of lockdown in some areas? Hopeful? Anxious? I have mixed feelings, but I’m optimistic. Whatever the case, please keep safe. Sending virtual hugs to you all.

This week, I’ll be sharing one of my favourite scenes from Starting Over again. Here, Onome’s car broke down and Nnamdi swooped in to the rescue.


Lowering his briefcase to the ground, he moved towards the car.

“What happened?” he enquired, peering into the engine. “The engine overheated,” he answered his own question, flapping his hand across his nose at the smell emanating from the engine.

“It must have been giving you trouble before now,” Nnamdi said dryly. He took off his suit jacket and handed it to her. Onome took it from him and watched in fascination as he folded up his sleeves to his elbows exposing strong muscular forearms faintly dusted with dark hairs.

“It kept making a horrid sound throughout the week, but because the engine kept going, I ignored it hoping it could serve me until I visited the mechanic this Saturday,” Onome explained as she stepped out of the way for him to move closer to the car.

He nodded, then flashed her a smile. The brilliance of his dazzling white teeth temporarily mesmerised Onome.

“Is that how you deal with problems, Onome? Ignore them? Hope they disappear?” he asked, refocusing his attention on the engine. He removed the top of the spark plug and sniffed it and shook his head.

“I don’t ignore problems,” she countered. “I just like to handle things on my own time.”

“Good. Because some things can’t be ignored. Like heat. It keeps building up inside until it suddenly explodes.” He turned to look directly at her. “Heat can’t be ignored.”

Her pulse quickened. Were they still talking about the car?


Hope you enjoyed reading. Please leave a comment.
