Welcome to another Six Sentence Sunday!
Here’s something new for you today. My six is from The Olympian, a short story about lust, love and second chances. The manuscript is currently out on submission for consideration in a holiday anthology. *crosses fingers*
In this scene, Rachel, an Olympic skier hopeful, stops at Starbucks for a chai latte on her way to Crimson Mountain for a weekend of training. She meets Hans who offers, well insists, on giving her a ride to the mountain because he thinks her tin can of a car is unsafe. Let’s just say they don’t exactly hit it off.
Rachel speaks first:
“Two can play this game, Mr. Sherlock Holmes. I know plenty about you, guys like you are a dime a dozen. You’re used to women eating out of your hand at the snap of your fingers. That’s not happening here so move along, asshole.”
She turned on her heels and began to walk toward the door.
“A pretty little mouth like that shouldn’t say such dirty words.”
Does she turn around or keep on walking? Find out next week when I’ll share the next six lines. Click here for more Six Sunday fun.
