Six Sentence Sunday 5/29




Six sentences from After Midnight. We pick up right where we left of last week, with Isabeau and Noah.

“What do you want from me?” she inquired before he could comment.


“That’s a good question,” he replied, more to himself than in answer to her. “How about your name?”


The way he looked at her made it very, very hard for her to look away. “Isabeau.”


“Isabeau.”

Thanks for stopping by every week. Really. I appreciate it more than I can express.

And don't forget to stop by the Official Site for a complete list of everyone participating this week. I know they all appreciate your comments as much as I do.
