Today’s six are from my endless vault of half-finished stories. Maybe posting will motivate me to finish this one, which I think wants to be an actiony/romance fantasy short.

“I’m fully aware of the consequences,” Eleanor said, meeting the woman’s eyes, “and his lordship needs to be aware that I can’t be bought. And if he intends to resort to force, well, I’m prepared for that as well.”
Luella stared at Eleanor, then broke into a toothy grin and said, “I wouldn’t doubt it for a moment.”
