Six Sentence Sunday

 It is a while since I participated in Six Sentence Sunday, but today I'm carrying on from yesterday's post and offering more from my latest release by Astraea Press, Vidal's Honor.


“You—!” Honor remembered to lower her voice and started again. “Are you implying we are going to ride through the water?” Consuela, she noted, didn’t appear any more pleased with this plan than she did. “But it is dark, what if we slip and fall?”
“What if those behind us catch up?” Juan snapped back, his patience dwindling.

There's plenty more to read at   Six Sentence Sunday

He's got a point! Great sense of urgency in this snippet. Nice job!
(BTW-I couldn't find your Sweet Saturday post! May be my computer.)

Jenna, thanks for your kind words, It's back up now. Somehow it reverted to draft. It's back up now.

Tmonique Stephens said...

She seems like a lot of fun. Great six

Rae Renzi said...

Love the counterpoint of her concerns vs his urgency (and I like him already!). Very nice!

gemma parkes said...

Yes l'd get in the water - quick! Exciting six.

Gem Sivad said...

Point taken. Let's hustle into the boat, then we can argue.

Oh, good point--I wonder who they're running from!

Great six, Sherry! :)

Sherry Gloag said...

lol Gemma, the thought of what i was putting this lot through that night had me shivering with cold!

Sherry Gloag said...

LOL Gem. No boat, sorry.

Sherry Gloag said...

Thanks for coming by Jane, I'm glad I got you wondering.

Taryn Kincaid said...

Unless she can walk on the water, she should probably get in the boat!

Lyric James said...

I bet she gets on that boat. Great six!

Karen Michelle Nutt said...

I could feel Juan's impatience and urgency to hurry. Also, the readers get a sneak peek at both ther characters personalities. I can't wait for more.

Sherry Gloag said...

Taryn, she's already been 'hoisted' onto a mule. No boat available! Thanks for coming by :-)

Sherry Gloag said...

:-) Thanks for coming by Lyric I appreciate your comment.

Sherry Gloag said...

Thanks Karen, there's a lot of angst between them, that's for sure.
