Six Sentence Sunday 7/31


Welcome to another Six Sentence Sunday! Thanks for stopping by. Between 55 hours work weeks, prepping for my upcoming blog tour and family, I have very little spare time on my hands right now. So I've decided to take a hiatus from SSS. Don't worry it'll only be a few weeks, I promise. ;-)

I'll leave you with this last bit from After Midnight.


Noah plucked the CDs from the bar without taking his eyes off her face. He didn’t understand that she clung to the slippery edge of control.


But then, he didn’t need to understand. He needed to leave her.


Then he did. Just like she’d wanted.


So why did she suddenly feel empty?


Don't forget to visit www.sixsunday.com for a complete list of participating authors. But be warned...your to-be-read list will expand! I know mine always does.

Just testing as a few of the blogs I've visited this morning won't allow me to comment.

I feel the heaviness of her heart, and that feeling there is nothing she can do about it. Wonderful six, I'm getting a wine (it's night here) and will drink for her misery.

Paula Martin said...

I can feel her pain. Great six.

Liz said...

Nice six as always. Just so you know the new look of your blog comes over(the header) a little dark and hard to see.

Cate Masters said...

She's so conflicted! Poor girl.

The conflict is palatable. Nicely done 6 . And I fully understand the need to take time off . Been thinking of doing the same. Good luck.

Jessica K said...

I feel her pain, too. Have a good hiatus and come back soon!

diannehartsock said...

Be careful what you wish for! Maybe she should go after him.

Jenna said...

So conflicted! But I bet she won't go after him. Maybe he'll return? When you do? Have a good hiatus, Sarah.

Lynne Murray said...

So sad, and yet with that kind of bond these two must meet again! Strong hook into the relationship! Best of luck with all that stuff on your schedule, see you when you get back, virtually!

Bethany J. Barnes said...

I had trouble trying to leave a comment earlier in the day also. Strange.

Misery...I know thy name well. So much pain and conflict. Don't go!

Great Six Sarah. :D

Really good description. The short sentences increase tension. Good job.

Oh dear, I guess really she didn't want him to leave after all. :(

There's nothing quite like getting what we want and being left lost by it....sigh.

Poor heroine, getting what we want isn't always what's best for us. :(
