Six Sentence Sunday - Episode Ten

Continuing in RESET...
Lewis Hunter is desperately hoping that Lilly won't recognize him...

Disclaimer - this is sorta more than 6 sentences, but it was hard to break the thoughts and dialogue, so I left them together, and I would HATE to leave you all hanging LOL!

“Have you really been around since 1934?” she asked. 

My smile faltered.

Her next sentences tumbled out in a rush.  “The sign out front says…I mean, of course you haven't! Maybe a grandfather? Great-Uncle?” The words tripped over each other, left her cheeks flushed pink.
No questions! "My grandfather." I held my breath.

“Oh. That makes sense," she said, but continued to study me, her face a picture of perplexity.  She leaned in, as if for closer inspection, and I stepped back, fearing what I'd do if she crossed that line I'd drawn - the one that kept her safe.

  13. Roberta,
    What's wrong with leaving us hanging. I do it all the time.
    I love the nervous humor of Lily and the calmness of Lewis even with the tension he was starting to feel if she moved closer

  19. Thanks all. I have let my writing/blogging/tweeting/FBing to take a back seat to life the past few weeks - 2 jobs, a farm with lots of newborn lambs, and well - it's spring! But your kind comments have spurred to me finish the damn book! The last scene is finally taking shape and then I can start revising and maybe, just maybe someday get it out there! That would be my dream come true!

  20. What is he? I ahve an idea but you really pulled me in

  21. Ha ha, Jayel, my goal is that you don't find out 'till well into the book :) If I've done it right, that is and readers don't toss it aside (that's if it ever gets out there!) in frustration first!
