Six Sentence Sunday May 8

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 ?

    I feel for the guy. Must be tough being married to the same woman for eternity. Of course the reverse is true. What do you think? They gonna get it on or will her earthly morales say no.

  2. Lindsay says:

    I think she should stop nibbling her muffin. They are suppose to be eaten while earlobes and lower lips of hunkies should be nibbled on, and that ‘s what she should be doing. Plus, he’s been around for 250 years and bet she’d love to know some of the tricks he’s learned over the years.

  3. Gem Sivad says:

    Well, that tops any introduction I’ve ever had. 😀 Sounds like he’s still in hell and he’s looking at heaven. This snippet makes me smile anticipating so much…more please.

    • sassyspeaks says:

      ah thank for the comment – I love it – and I’ve fallen in love with these two so I am still writing their story – will give more as it’s written.

  4. Bad news is he’s married. Good news is, he’s a guy who turns off his cell phone!

    • sassyspeaks says:

      hmmm you did not read the snippet where he does not turn off the phone? His married is not bad news really – stay tuned – and thanks for the comment !

  5. Chrystalla says:

    The divorce from hell, lol. Great six.

  6. Sarah Grimm says:

    I’m really enjoying the sixes from this one. Very intriguing!

  7. Another great six…

  8. Marie Dees says:

    Hmm, in the Catholic church marriage is one of the holy sacraments, so the idea of marriage in Hell is intriguing.

  9. Cate Masters says:

    I’m loving this story. Keep it coming!

  10. Lynne Murray says:

    Interesting job he’s got. Sorry, this “no divorce in hell” idea reminded me of a joke from a friend who lives in Sparks, Nevada right near the quickie divorce capital, Reno. “Reno’s so close to hell you can see Sparks!” If this devil’s soul repo man really wanted a divorce it’s a short commute from hell to get a one in Reno. But seriously she sounds like she’s hooked and it will be hard to turn him down, divorce or no! Great suspenseful six!

    • sassyspeaks says:

      Thank you for the great comment. Was having a dreary day then this came in 😀

      cute joke

      Repo man ? Hmmm interesting. A film by that name is very good

      Yep, will confirm – she is hooked

  11. Gayle Ramage says:

    Lol, love the idea of there being no divorce in hell!

    Great snippet!

  12. Hmm, now that’s alot of info but don’t know if it makes me like him anymore since he’s married. Great job!

    • sassyspeaks says:

      Well, just think if you were married for say 100 years to one person and even if not happy could not get a divorce – could not get one no matter what – what would your choices be ?

      I don’t mean to offend you – this is fiction after all 🙂

  13. bluerose says:

    he, he, I know the answer. there’s a lot of perks to being a mistress, like not having to worry about divorce. ;]

  14. The no divorce and no overtime policy are not things I usually associate will hell, but it emphasizes the horrors of the place well. And I love how he calls the devil Mr. D. 🙂

    • sassyspeaks says:

      Well she is the Devil’s Mistress, by proxy, since her Lover is not the Devil Himself.
      And don’t you think a place would be hell with no divorce or overtime ? No vacations either…. Thank you Jessica !

  15. Liana Brooks says:

    Interesting. I’m intrigued by the idea that there is marriage in Hell at all. The no-overtime makes sense. Come to think of it, I may have worked there once.

    I’m looking forward to finding out what she does next.

  16. No divorce in hell — LOL — love that concept. Fab six!

  17. hee-hee, still enjoying these 😉

  18. Wow, interesting premise. Love the idea…Well not to live it, but to read it LOL!!!

  19. jayel kaye says:
