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!
From my untitled WIP The stories start in the 50s. Six teens, seemingly very different, meet weekly and keep in touch with each other their entire lives. They must have something in common.
Last week we learned what Joey is doing now that he is no longer in school. This week it’s Gene’s turn.
Gene shifted around in his seat trying to get more comfortable, putting down his fork, he said, “I was almost late myself since my shift ended at nine and I had to get all the way over here in an hour.”
As he reached for the salt, he noticed the group’s blank faces, “Oh right you don’t know that I got a job as an orderly at Community Hospital. The pay’s not great but I like the people, especially the orderly in the next ward who’s friendly, helpful and cute. Of course some of the patients are cranky but they’re sick and scared so I try to be understanding. Even though they’re diseased I still treat them like people.”
Gene looked like a little boy, albeit a muscular one, in his white uniform with his hair tousled from running around the hospital.
