Six Sentence Sunday - 10.7.12

(The first speaker is Manerra.)

"I wanted to make peace."

"By threatening him?"

"That wasn't supposed to happen."

He took a step toward Manerra, saw him flinch, and stopped. It was better they remain apart. He wasn't certain he could control his need to slap his successor.

Moons' Kiss is available in print and ebook from Barnes & Noble, Amazon, Smashwords, and other book retailers. Until October 8th, you can enter for a chance to win a print copy of Moons' Kiss at Goodreads.

    1. Thanks, Brenda. Unfortunately, obligations interfer with weekly posts. I don't want to post when I know I won't be here to reply to comments or reciprocate. But I am participating whenever I can.

  3. "It was better they remain apart." Could that be a double entendre -- or a prediction?

    Nice six!

    1. A knife at the throat is a very real threat. When Manerra messes up, he does so spectacularly.

    1. Good to see you again, Lorraine! The successor needs to think more and react less.
