Six Sentence Sunday
It’s Six Sentence Sunday where I join tons of other writers, whose links you will find by clicking on the logo above or on the site name, to thrill, tantalize and tickle your fancy with a tiny sample of something we’re working on, or that’s already published. I decided to go with a few lines from Back to the Way We Were, my short cowboy story.
I hope you enjoy a blip from this reunion story. This is when the main characters first meet again. At this point Haley has said exactly one word to Nick, before he’s even seen her face, hidden under a floppy hat. This is his reaction to that word, a voice he’s never forgotten–good or bad–over the years apart.
Husky and soft, her voice dug into his head and dragged across his memories like sand paper over raw skin. Suddenly he knew the color of her hair, the shape of her body. He knew the exact shade of green of her eyes. If he didn’t say her name, refused to acknowledge who she was, would he be able to wake from the dream in which he suddenly found himself? Hell no. That would be too simple, and nothing about Kyley Carter was ever easy.
I look forward to sharing more of this story next week!
