Six Sentence Sunday

As always, my thanks to all of you who stop by and read my efforts. I appreciate your company.

This week I am taking a break from my short story Precious Treasures and posting six sentences from my current WIP

“You have today week to change your mind”
No signature, but she didn’t need one to know who’d sent it. Certainly not Brandon as the Butler claimed. Nor did she understand the reason for Ned Grainger’s chilling pursuit. She looked at the note again, ‘today week’, next Friday then. 
If she didn’t agree to marry him by next Friday he’d do…what?

Yikes! What tension!

Cate Masters said...

Some proposal! She needs to run!

JoAnne Kenrick said...

Yikes... one week to...RUN!! It took me a few read throughs to figure out what today week meant, though. Is that oldy-worldy speak for in one week? It's what I guessed through context, anyhow. LOL

Jennifer Lowery (Kamptner) said...

What will he do? Great six!

Jenna said...

Great tension! Reminded me of the Sting song "Seven days was all she wrote, a kind of ultimatum note." Love it. Great job!

Lindsay said...

Great cliffhanger you've got going here

diannehartsock said...

Does she need to take out a 'restraining order' on him? I would!

Sherry Gloag said...

:-) Thanks for coming by Zee.

Sherry Gloag said...

:-) Cate, running would make too easy,now wouldn't it?

Sherry Gloag said...

JoAnne, thanks for pointing out your sticking point. I'll take it into consideration. Here, it means Friday today so Friday nest week, rather (next week = 7days)

Sherry Gloag said...

He has several options, she has few. Thanks for coming by, Jennifer.

Sherry Gloag said...

Thanks for that Jenna, and for your company.

Sherry Gloag said...

Thanks Lindsay. :-)

Sherry Gloag said...

Thanks for coming by Diane, (I hope to nip over to yours soon) For various reasons a restraining order would not work.

Siobhan Muir / Meg Palevich said...

Good question. What WOULD he do? Great six! :)

Gem Sivad said...

Depending on how he develops, he could be a misunderstood suitor or a complete menace. Your six makes me want to know which. :)

Alix said...

Well written tension, you have me hooked.

Elaine Cantrell said...

I can't tell if he's the hero or bad guy. Nice tension.

Sandra Sookoo said...

I'm with Joanne, I don't know what "today week" means, but nice six!

Taryn Kincaid said...

Wow. A marriage threat!

Ana Hart said...

I hope she says no so we can find out what he will do! Excellent six!

Sherry Gloag said...

Thanks for coming by Siobhan Muir / Meg Palevich

Sherry Gloag said...

:-) Thanks for your kind words, Alix.

Sherry Gloag said...

Gem, he's a thoroughly 'bad lot'. LOL

Sherry Gloag said...

Thanks for coming by Elaine. He's up to no good.

Sherry Gloag said...

Sandra, thanks for your comment. I weigh up whether to re-wrtie that bit or not.

Sherry Gloag said...

Taryn, thanks for coming by. I appreciate your visit.

Sherry Gloag said...

Now Ana, would it be that simple? :-) Thanks for your kind words.

I got thrown by the 'today week' too.

Sherry Gloag said...

Thanks for letting me know. I will definately look for an alternative way of saying 'same day next week' which sounds like a simple solution, but in this case I'm not sure it would work.
