I’ve been so busy this week, I completely forgot about Six Sentence Sunday. Better late than never though, right?
This week’s six are from “Innocence,” a StoryADay Challenge companion to my flash piece “The Kindness of Strangers,” which was published last year in The Indiana Horror Anthology 2011. While passing through a small town, Alec stops at a bar and tries to find the most desperate woman he can.
“I try to fit in, but no one understands me. No one but you.”
As her self-esteem plummeted before him, Alec’s heart rate increased with anticipation he hadn’t felt all night. He softened his expression, his voice. “Of course I understand you, Brianna. Why don’t I take you home and you tell me all about how misunderstood you are?”
