It’s time again for Six Sentence Sunday
Every week participants post six sentences from something they are writing – or have written. It’s a lot of fun and really a great way to meet new writers!
And I’ve met some terrific people thank you!
Be sure to check out the other great participants and thanks so much for stopping by!
I appreciate all your comments as they have helped in the development of these characters.
Last week we left the couple in Starbucks, which some of you called the devil’s playground 🙂 as she listened to his story
He, in turn, gazed at her with her big curly blonde hair, cute petite figure and deep blue eyes that he knew would take him to places he’s always longed for but would never admit.
“You won’t believe me but I’ll tell you anyway, and no, it wasn’t your imagination.”
He shrugged, and with a guilty expression, as if to say ‘too bad I’ll deal with it later’, deliberately turned off his cell phone.
She nibbled at her muffin, sipped her coffee and listened as he told his story.
He told her he was 250 years old and when at home in Hell was married, but since no divorce existed in Hell, that’s why they call it Hell, after all, he couldn’t get out of the marriage; though he worked long hours in a booming business he didn’t receive overtime, as no overtime, either, in Hell.
He worked for the Devil as part of a mid management team extracting souls from the newly departed in order to fulfill contracts negotiated by the client with Mr.. D, as he called his boss, for a benefit during their life in exchange for selling their soul.
“The light you saw was the soul leaving the driver, one of our clients, and me sending it on to Mr.. D.”
What do you think? Will she or won’t she ?
