Day 19 of the Blogging from A to Z April challenge. Today’s topic: Six Sentence Sunday.
Okay, first, yes, this is probably against the rules of the A to Z challenge, seeing as how I should’ve posted this on Saturday and not Sunday, but you know what? This is my blog, and I’m lazy. So, here it is, my six sentences for the week.
This week’s chunk is from my a novel I’m working on, A Handful of Wishes. An elderly shopkeeper has given Zeke an odd-looking bottle.
“Promise me, Ezekiel.” The man’s voice was stern, commanding, as was the stare he leveled upon the boy.
“I promise to take good care of what’s in this bottle.”
Cornelius reluctantly handed the bottle to Zeke, who immediately took it and ran up the street towards his apartment. “Not what, my boy. Who!” the shopkeeper called after him, but Zeke was too far away, too excited, to hear his words.
