Six Sentence Sunday 01/23




Welcome all! First off I want to thank everyone who stops by and comments every week.
It really does make my day.

This week is the continuation from my work-in-progress, Midnight Heat. If you recall last week, Dominic has just apologized for walking out on Becca three years ago.




“Dominic, we… I can’t give you anything for the pain until after the scan.”

It was his turn to sigh. “It doesn’t matter.” There was nothing she could give him that would help.

Except for forgiveness.

Never gonna happen, mate.


For those of you who'd like to join in the fun, it's easy. Published or not, just pick six sentences from anything you'd like, WIP, recently contracted work or even something available for purchase.
Post them on your blog on Sunday.

@Jayel Kaye She eventually gives him a chance, but it takes a while. After all, what he did to her... really bad!

Very moving - now I want to know if she does forgive him.

Except for forgiveness.

So much emotion and history packed into just those three words.

Love the twist in this premise. He hurt her badly and knows it, but now it's her job to heal him.

I really hope to read this one in the future.
