Six Sentence Sunday 7/10



Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday! Last week Isabeau questioned Noah's honesty. But as you see today, it is she who is being dishonest.

“I don’t play anymore because the music is no longer inside of me. It’s gone.” Except it wasn’t. It cantered through her skull like a caged beast finally set loose. “Now if you want to know anything else, you’ll have to go back to your source.”

“What if I want the truth? Will I find it there as well?”



As always, thank you to everyone who keeps coming back to read and comment. Make sure to visit

Great image, the wild beast cantering... but 'canter' makes me think of a horse running at a specific speed, so, a horse controlled, which seems contrary to a wild beast :)

sorry, I'm super obsessive about word choices! ...but I want to read more!!
