Six Sentence Sunday


Hello everyone,

I thought, even with everything that is going on in my life, I wanted to still participate today in Six Sentence Sunday. This is from my current work in progress. Its called Embraced. Best to all of you!

Ben reached out and grabbed the side of Seven’s face. He wasn’t even aware that he’d done that until it happened. It was like his hand had a mind of it’s own. She had the most incredible blue eyes and now they were blacker than the night sky when he couldn’t see any stars. He should be afraid except he wasn’t. Not at all.

He was drawn to them like the moth was to the buzzing light that he hung on his porches to keep the mosquitoes away.

  7. He was drawn to them like the moth was to the buzzing light that he hung on his porches to keep the mosquitoes away.

    Awesome example of taking an overused metaphor ("moth to a flame") and making it fresh. Love this.

  14. I'm new here, but so sorry to hear of your loss. This bunch of writers seems like a group that cares, which sometimes helps a little. To post anything at such a time is brave, and these six sentences are compelling!
