Six Sentence Sunday


Welcome back, Sunday visitors… not as many as on the list, but thank you to those who made it to this little blog. I thought I’d continue with Air, but instead I will post six sentences from a short story available for free download at Smashwords… and it’s almost as if I kept posting from the novel. The Dancer happens 5 years after the end of the novel (Books of the Immortals – Air), just to prove there is no happy ending in life!

I’m picking up the story from the POV of the new character, Bella the dancer from the north (scene 2 of the short story). She’s resting with her musician Matteo after her performance, enjoying the southern food:

+++

“He can’t take his eyes off you,” Matteo warned, staring at someone beyond her. Too busy with her food, she didn’t turn to look.

“Who?” she asked.

“The king,” he said gloomily. She shrugged.

“You should be used to it by now,” she said.

  4. This evoked, for me, those old-testament stories where the dude always tries to pass his beautiful wife off as his sister so that the king won’t kill him to get her. Something like that going on? Veyr intriguing six.

  14. So he’s upset and she’s cool about it – makes you wonder about the history between them. 🙂
    And I found you on Smashwords – added a couple of your stories to my library so I can find them again and download when I’ve cleared my current backlog! 🙂
