Hi, there. And welcome to my very first Six Sentence Sunday on my brand spanking new blog. Last week, I had issues with comments and so, I decided there was no better time to jump ship than immediately. So, to ring in the new blog, a recap of Six Sunday:
- You pick six (6) sentences from anything you’ve written–a work in progress (wip), something under submission, something sold; something new, something old.
- You sign up at the Six Sunday website Tuesday starting at 6PM EST.
- You post it on Sunday (along with posting a link of suxisunday.com)! Such as I have below.
- And then you enjoy.
Right, so last week Lawson told his friend Catherine that they better run. Only problem is they don’t have an escape plan.
He was glad Catherine was feeling better, but he sure wished that he was; their options of escape had dwindled to none and it didn’t take a clever mind to surmise that once the soldier he’d hit got back up, he’d be looking for the boy that did it to him. The soldiers were starting to corral the townspeople together, to fan out into the alleys and herd them back like cattle.
“Law, what do we do?” Catherine asked. He wanted to ask her the same question.
He opened his mouth to tell her that they had better figure it out soon, or end up on the business end of the soldiers’ rifles when he saw Jenson and his covered wagon. Lawson took Catherine’s hand again and hoped it stayed there this time as he pushed through the crowd, eyes constantly looking for the soldier he was sure was coming.
He’s a resourceful kid, so I’m sure he’ll be fine. In the meantime, check out all the other Six Sunday snippets here. It’s a great way to spend Sunday. :)
