Out of Options

It’s another Sunday and another Six Sentence today, which is when:

  • 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.

Last week Lawson found an unlikely ally in Jenson, a guy who jumped him in a drug haze. Of course, he’s clean now, but that doesn’t make him a good person, now does it? Now, Lawson’s tried asking nicely that didn’t work. We’ve skipped ahead to when he’s feeling a little desperate.

“Don’t you have any decency left in you at all?” Lawson gripped Jenson’s sleeve, jerked the much bigger man down toward him. “She could get hurt out here.” The crash of people’s carts and feet sounded like war drums to Lawson, and he was no soldier.

Jenson looked back and forth between Lawson and Catherine, his jaw clenching and unclenching, but then he jerked a corner of the cover across his wagon back. “Get in, the both of you.”

All it takes is a little guilt. :) Lawson and Catherine aren’t out of it yet. But they’re really, really close. And thank God. I am so ready to move on to another part of the story. Heh. Make sure to check out the other great sixes here. Lots of lovely work.

  1. Thank goodness for that! This is still a very tense situation and I want to know what happened to Lawson’s … um …sister? I can’t remember her name, sorry. Victoria?

      Zoe. But I like Victoria. I think that should be her middle name. Thanks! :D We’ll come back to Zoe as soon as I wrap up Lawson escaping, which hopefully will be next Sunday. Thanks for coming by, Elin!

      Seriously. Everyone always has an ulterior motive, but hopefully this one is coming from a good glade. Thanks, Sue. :)

      Thank you, Sarah. I totally agree. Especially the transition from druggie $#!% to a leader. I’m having fun with these, because it’s giving me the ability to fill out Countdown.
