Six Sentence Sunday 6th Nov

As always, my thanks to everyone who stops by. I appreciate your company and your comments.
This week I am  posting six sentences from a Thanksgiving themed short story published a couple of years ago. Today's 'Six' is a continuation of yesterday's Sweet Saturday Sample

They’d met when he’d filled in when one of the regular photographers couldn’t make the shoot, and he'd not hidden his disdain. Why then had he asked her out for a drink afterwards? His broad shoulders, lean hips and tightly muscled body sent shivers up her spine every time she saw him and soon they became a couple. He filled her thoughts, and like a fool she’d dreamt of happy-ever-after. And then he’d met her twin, Alice. Before she could say ‘Boo-to-a-goose’, Alice had a ring on his finger and they’d left for America within a week of meeting.


You'll find more great offering at Six Sentence Sunday

Aaaahh...Is it his or Alice's fault? Then again, it could be true love with Alice? Interesting.. and ref Angela's question....perhaps they could end up sharing him! ha ha :)
Intriquing / cool 6 Sherry

Vivien Jackson said...

Oh, no, tragic! Is the story how they get back together? But then what about her twin? Argh! I foresee much angst. (yay!)

Cate Masters said...

Love the telling from a future point in time. Hope it leads to a happier ending for her!

T. C. Archer said...

Ohh, a man-stealing sister. Yep, that's a story in itself. ROFL.

Nina Pierce said...

Hmmm, certainly wonder where you're going with this one. You've got me wondering who can heal her broken heart.

Taryn Kincaid said...

boo to a goose! Great phrase!

Meg Maguire said...

Oh damn, betrayed by a guy AND a twin! I wouldn't want to be the next person to cross this woman!

Sandra Sookoo said...

Great snippet!

Zee Monodee said...

Yikes!! I was starting to like this guy, but he jilted her for her sister? So not right!

Jenna said...

I'm always grateful not to have had siblings! But yeah, he's sort of a jerk to go from one sister to the other. Hope he either reforms or is not the hero. Great six, though. :)

Sarah Ballance said...

Oh, wow. That ending was SO not what I expected! This one is a page turner for sure! :c)
