Six Sentence Sunday September 4

Yea! It’s Sunday and time for Six Sentence Sunday

Hopefully everyone is having good, calm weather.

I am away most of the day and will reply and comment when I get home.

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 we return to the Devil’s Mistress. He learns about his assignments through a text from Mr. D, his boss. But when they first met he turned off the phone so he wouldn’t have to leave while they were getting to know each other for the first time. This scene takes place after they’ve been seeing each other for several weeks.

I smiled, and said, “You never told me how you explained the turned off cell to your Boss the first time we met..”

It seemed so long ago.

He replied with a grin of his own while his eyebrows danced with amusement and he told me the rest of the story.

 “Even the Devil can’t control electronics all the time. Digital devices are not subject to rules–any rules. I told Mr. D that the battery died and I had to get it re-charged as soon as was ‘humanly’ possible.”

A low, long chortle from him and a grin from me at his reply.


The Devil’s Mistress, a paranormal romance, is about an unlucky in love woman and a man who works in mid-management for the Devil. He’s the one who dispatches souls to his boss, Mr. D. She vows to restore her lover’s humanity and not lose him in the process. The story is told entirely from her point of view.

    Now I know how to get the better of the Devil: use electronic equipment! 😉

    Just a small comment: there appears to be too much grinning/smiling/chortling in just six sentences.

    Love the idea that even the Devil can’t control electronic devices – even though I’d swear sometimes the devil is messing up my computer! Great six!
