Six Sentence Sunday

Best wishes  for 2012 to you all.


Thank you to everyone who leaves comments, and visits every week.  
What better way to start the New Year than to start with a new story? So  Today I am sharing the opening six lines of my Valentine Story about the brother of the hero in my current novella, From Now Until Forever, published by Astraea Press.

Henri Pierre Gasquet hesitated before knocking on his father’s office door. They’d shared breakfast together less than an hour ago and talked over many things, including Henri’s killer schedule for the next several months. The king had given no indication of the need for a formal meeting this morning. With a fatalistic shrug, he knocked, waited a second, then turned the handle and entered the room.

“You wanted to see me?”
Henri waited for his father to indicate he sit before dropping into the chair in front of the king’s desk.

You'll find plenty more great offerings at Six Sentence Sunday

Very ominous and daunting - I wonder what's brewing with the king...

So much pressure on him. Wonder what the king wants with him now? You have me interested!

Good reminder in this snippet of the awesome power of a king. Henri's angst is well-founded. Great six!
