Six Sentence Sunday 6/19


Okay, I admit that it's nearly eleven p.m. Saturday night and I'm only just getting to my six. *sigh*
So, we know how Isabeau sees herself (you can revisit it here), but how does Noah see her?



While classic rock blared from the speakers, he took a moment to study the profile that looked both soft and angular. She wasn’t beautiful in the traditional sense, but compelling. She had a way of looking at a person as she spoke with them, like they were the most important person in the room. And a wide, friendly smile that could steal a man’s breath.


He’d been on the receiving end of it once, just once, and he’d yet to fully recover.

That sounds like obsession at first smile. And of course that obsession will later grow into love. You do good at painting a picture with very little physical description. Good job.

Nice description, and with the way she looks directly at whoever she's speaking with, it tells us something about Isabeau's character too. Really good writing, which I enjoyed immensely.
