Six Sentence Sunday 7/24


Just two more weeks of this scene from After Midnight, then it's a couple of weeks off as I prepare for it's September release and corresponding Blog Tour.



“Leave.” She paused at the emotion in her voice. “There’s nothing for you here.”


Desperate to have him gone, to quiet her painful memories as much as her mind, she shoved the compact discs across the bar top. The stack tipped, one slid off the other and spread out as she’d arranged them a few moments ago. Three unblemished, cherubic faces looked back at her, reminding her of how much she’d lost. “Please go.”

aww such a sad snippet, the emotion, Sarah -- oh my, fab six!

Vivien Jackson said...

Her despair comes through so strongly through her words that you almost don't need to mention it in terms of what it feels like. This is a beautiful moment of understatement, letting the CDs take the fall instead.
