Six Sentence Sunday 4/17


Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday.
This week: intimacy leads to new realizations for Justin. And a promise.



Her face tipped up.

Justin gazed into her green eyes, hot with emotion. The smile upon her lips stole his breath.

“I can do my job, Paige,” he promised her, determined to make his words truth. “I will do my job. I’ll find this guy before he hurts you.”



Make sure you check out all the sixes at the official Six Sunday Site. It's tons of fun!

Interested in joining in the fun? Published or Unpublished, if you're a writer, you're invited. The rules are simple:
  • pick a project – a current Work in Progress, contracted work or even something readers can buy if you’re published
  • pick six sentences
  • post ‘em on Sunday

See? Easy.
