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?”
Post a link to your six sentences blog entry, or join the fun at the Six Sentence Sunday website.
Very chilling already. The sentence “Alec tries to find the most desperate woman he can,” sets up your story. Well done. How do you teach and do all the writing you do? My weekends were spent grading.
