Six Sentence Sunday - Episode Fifteen

As promised, we are now going inside Lilly Young's head, in a new scene that continues right after her visit to Lewis Hunter's butcher shop.  To read that scene in its entirety, click HERE.

I pulled in front of the hospital, to wait for Nick. Nobody asked me to move the Porsche, even though I had blatantly ignored the NO PARKING signs that decorated the entrance bay. When he appeared, moving swiftly towards the revolving doors, I felt momentarily plunged onto the runway of a fashion show.

Nicholas Blake made scrubs look elegant.

Even under the hospital's harsh lighting that reached out into the dusk, Nick was the picture of tall and handsome, but he wasn't dark. His face - his divine face - appeared starkly pale in the half light, almost ethereal.  

As always, be sure to visit the official website of Six Sentence Sunday to either sign up or follow the links to over one hundred "Sixes". 

Happy Father's day!

Six Sentence Sunday - Episode Fourteen

Good day all!

Yes, this is SSS Episode 14...Because even though there was no official SSS last week, I still posted. Scroll down to the previous post to read Episode 13.  If you would like to read the entire scene from RESET from the beginning, click HERE.  You'll have to scroll all the way down through the "older posts" to start at Episode One.

And of course, to find out how to participate in this awesome weekly blog hop, visit the new improved Six Sentence Sunday site!  After 9 a.m on Sunday, you can find the list of links to the hundred plus talented writers who have thrown in their Six this week!

Hopefully I'll figure out my new smartphone so I can read and comment on Sunday - otherwise, I will get to reading as many Sixes as I can on Monday - as I procrastinate for work.

And finally, here is the final bit of this scene!  Next week - I change POVs and questions may be answered...Or not!

"I'd better go," she said, still not going.
"Yes." Because I didn't trust myself to linger in her presence any longer, I snatched up my apron and pushed through the door, leaving it swinging to and fro, like an unasked question. 
When I heard the jingle of the bell as the door closed, I collapsed against the wall.
I would not ruin her life.  Again.

Six Sentence Sunday - Episode Thirteen...Kinda

Drat, wrote my post, then went to sign up and there is no SSS this week! So, this is an "Unofficial Six".  Anyone else do a "Six" this week?  Let me know by commenting and I'll be sure to visit! Remember, every Sunday (except this one), you can read other great snippets written by the talented writers who participate in Six Sentence Sunday by clicking HERE.

I watched her swallow uncomfortably. Then she smiled. It was tentative, but it still lit up the room.

“I'm Lillian Young.” She extended a hand over the counter. “But please call me Lilly. Lillian sounds like someone's grandmother.”

I looked at her hand, hovering in space, but made no move to take it. “I know who you are,” I said, and slid the wrapped packet towards her.

Happy Sunday all!

Six Sentence Sunday - Episode Twelve

YIKES!  Sorry all.  I am not sure my writerly dreams will come to fruition this year - at least this spring / summer.  Darn day job!  Busy, busy with whopping marketing reports for two clients...Well, you could say writing a marketing report is sort of similar to fiction writing!

I'm back with SSS.  However, I won't be able to comment until probably Monday and I can't wait to see what I missed!

Continuing in RESET - the Butcher Shop scene.  To read the whole scene since Episode One, click HERE.

She tried to cross her arms in front of her, but her parka was so bulky, she gave up, letting her hands slide into the pockets instead. “I find old memories fascinating,” she said.

“Do you.” I had meant it to sound like a question.

“Yes,” she said, still defensive. “Who doesn't?”

“I don't.”

And the mystery deepens...Thanks to all who continue to stop by, even when I can't be as dedicated a Blogger as I'd like. 
As always, don't miss reading tidbits from other talented writers' WIPs and finished works by visiting the Six Sentence Sunday Links page HERE.
Happy Sunday!

Six Sentence Sunday - Episode Eleven

From RESET (of course).  Continuing where we left off last week, still Lewis Hunter's POV. If you're interested in reading this scene from the very beginning, go HERE.

She pushed herself away from the counter, away from me.
"I just wondered because I've never seen any photos of this place in the archives,” she said.

“Archives?” I frowned.
“The Martinsburg Historical Society.”
Now my smile felt so ironic, I was sure she would notice. “A history buff, are you?”

The Martinsburg Historical Society HQs, right beside Belle Boyd House and across the street from the historic B&O Roundhouse.

As always, a big thank you to everyone who stops by to read and comment!  Go HERE for links to over 100 other Sixes.  Yes that's right - there are over 100 participants in SSS!  Wow!
