Six Sentence Sunday

Thank you to everyone who leaves comments, and visits every week.

Today I am sharing more from of my Valentine Story about  Henri Gasquet, hero in His Chosen Bride.

“What!” Shock propelled Henri from his chair, and anxiety chased him round the room while he tried to remarshall his scattered thoughts. “I don’t have time to take leave of any kind,” he snapped. "This morning I am presiding over the ceremony to lay the new foundations for the bridge that will connect the west of our country more directly with the east.”

He tunnelled his fingers through his hair.

“This afternoon, I have a meeting with the backers about the funds for Melanie’s riding school for the disabled; and this evening I am giving a speech to the leaders of our financial sector.”

Please hop on over to SIX SENTENCE SUNDAY to read more fabulous snippets on offer this week.

Bet he's going to have to make time for leave. Something's going to upset his schedule but good. But I wonder what it is?

I think Henry's schedule has just suffered a sever setback. And it sounds like it's none too soon!
Great six!

Oh my, Henri, even I think you need a break! But will he take one? He seems a stubborn man to me. :)

Wow, I'm tired just reading about his schedule. This is a great six - I think he's going to need to be flexible. :c)

Hi Dianne, thanks for coming by, I so love the comments I'm getting as they've given me additonal 'fodder' to add to the next chapter (Which I did think was 'finished!' LOL

His Sarah, yeah, he's got a fairly steep learning curve ahead of him and not just about his own lifestyle!

Cate Masters said...

Sounds like he needs a rest! And if I remember correctly, he's getting it whether he likes it or not?
