Six Sentence Sunday


Osiyo~

Yep. It’s that time and I’m excited to bring you a little more of something I’m writing! For the last three weeks I’ve been sharing snippets of a paranormal I’ve been working on since Nano 2006. Obviously I didn’t win Nano if I’m still writing on this story. πŸ™‚ But that’s ok. I plan to do Nano this year again and maybe I’ll win this time.

So Dray and Chelsie have met but what are their gifts? They are mind manipulators of massive proportions. They can hear thoughts of those around them, they can move objects, make outsiders see what isn’t there, or keep them from seeing what is- to name a few special gifts these Talents are capable of. There are levels of gifts and a special ‘race’ that can do several of these simultaneously. Chelcie is one of these. I call them Kortais. They are kind of like the queens of the manipulators. Rare and hardly ever discovered. It is almost unheard of for someone to meet one, much less two or especially not three- or at least not know when they do meet them. This group is protected because without them the entire race of mind manipulators is at risk of elimination. There is one particular enemy who wants to find and kill Chelcie because she has the power to destroy him when others before her failed for hundreds of years. Can she survive long enough to save her race? Will she find the one who is the key to accomplishing her fated job? Or will the evil one kill her as he did her ancestors?

This week I’llΒ skip a few linesΒ from where I left off last week. Dray truly doesn’t know what to make of Chelcie at this point. He is unreasonably and romantically drawn to her, though he suspects she might be sent to kill him. Maybe it’s the Frenchman in him?

β€œWhat are you looking at with such interest?”

Such obstinate belligerence in her voice, but he supposed he didn’t blame her. He was, after all, staring rudely, and enjoying it very much.

β€œHmm? You.” Not that he would admit to the impossibility to drag his gaze from her lovely face at that moment.Β 

I think he’s smitten. What about you? Don’t forget you can follow the link in the 6SS link at the top to find more snippets from participating writers. Until next week…

  12. I had fun writing this full scene which is comprised of my last four posts (inc this one)! When I began Nano that year I thought I’d come out with another contemporary cowboy because, well, that’s my preference- what I know and love. These two delighted me in surprise then and they continue to do so every time I open their doc! Thanks for reading everyone. I’m so happy you all like them as much as I do!
