Six Sentence Sunday July 3

Yea! It’s Sunday and time 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!

This week I’m again offering a snippet from The Devil’s Mistress. At dinner with the women she met in library school, she knows she will have to tell them about her new lover. It’s not like she can say her new boyfriend works for the devil, now can she?

After we were settled down with our drinks, they all turned to me with raised eyebrows and wanted to know what was new.

“You’re absolutely glowing,” one of them said, “so who’s the new man?”

“Well, you’re right. There is a new man in my life.”

I told them we met when we both happened to be at an accident scene in my neighbourhood–it was basically a pick up,  and after it was all sorted out he invited me for a coffee; I’ve been seeing him ever since.

Luckily most people are so invested in their own lives, and with  so little imagination, that they didn’t ask anything that I couldn’t answer honestly.

    Well, so this new guy is more than your usual pick-up I take it. Maybe has a little (or a lot) of devil in him. Great six! 🙂

  2. Marie Dees says:

    Interesting last line. Yep, people are like that.

  3. Well he can’t be all bad if he was helping at an accident, nice set up 🙂

  4. Love this six..and what a cover 🙂

  5. Would love to see six sentences of interaction between the hero and heroine!

  6. jennajaxon says:

    Yes, your cover is “devilish!” Has he just taken her in, or is there more to this devil than meets the eye? Gotta put this one on my TBR list! Great six!

  7. Bree Younger says:

    My oh my!! I can sense much trouble ahead!! lol! Great snip!

  8. lol pick up at an accident scene!

  9. Very cute! Well, most people wouldn’t expect anyone to be dating a man who worked for the devil, at least not literally.

  10. Jc Martin says:

    Wonder what she’d say if anyone asked what her new squeeze did for a living? 🙂

  11. Sarah Grimm says:

    I’m with JC, what WOULD she say if someone asked her what her new man did for a living? Would love to read that!

  12. Randi Alexander says:

    Oooh, I want to know what she’s hiding! Great six!

  13. Alix says:

    Wonderful six!

  14. gayleramage says:

    Ha, fab snippet!

  15. Lindsay says:

    Fantastic snippet. Love how she glosses over how they met. Love the cover

  16. Xakara says:

    It’s always easier to stick to the truth and let everyone fill in the rest on their own. *grin* Intriguing snippet! 🙂

    Hiding things from friends can put a woman in an isolated position if the boyfriend is abusive or controlling. Not that her boyfriend is necessarily a bad person, although the soul-stealing job could present problems. Lots of people work for big, evil corporations…usually not THAT evil… Fun six!

    • sassyspeaks says:

      Your first point is very true – however is not the case here. The main point I wanted to make is in the last line. I really appreciate your thoughtful comment

  18. epbeaumont says:

    So you have me with the final line and the implication that there are things here that we shouldn’t be telling casual friends. Nothing like a little not-all-is-well-here to make the reader greedy for story.

  19. J.A. Beard says:

    The last line says a lot, to me, about why she’s dating this guy in general.

  20. Kathleen says:

    Well, well, well….She’s keeping all the juicy stuff for herself! LOL

  21. Fab six – love it! 🙂

  22. bluerose says:

    ha, if they only knew! they’d probably have lots of questions

  23. hee-hee, sometimes the self centered friends can be handy! 😉

Aw come on say something....
