six sentence sunday December 18


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.

I wish you all prolific writing and may your muse not run off with one of Santa’s elves. 😀

 

I’ll be traveling for a while so see y’all some time next year. In the meantime six more from The Devil’s Mistress

 

On a nasty Sunday afternoon the soul collector and his mistress are cuddled together on the couch, his arm wrapped around her back, her blonde head resting  against the cozy pillow of his red cashmere sweater,  as he tells her the story about meeting Alicia the vampire in 1930s Chicago and the aftermath of their one night together.

 

“The client had just died…”

“How did he die?”

“Shush, it is not important.  And I was about to send his soul on to Mr.D.   It had been a busy night since two of the families had attempted to eradicate each other and I was anxious to get home.  Admittedly, I also hoped to see Alicia again.”

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.

    Loving these story snippets. Looking forward to more.

    Weird and well written. 😀 He’s telling her about a “hit”, a “pick-up and delivery to hell”, and his former girlfriend–and you made it work!! Lol. Great six!

  7. J.C. Martin says:

    Interesting how he wouldn’t divulge details about his job. Have a wonderful holiday season!

  8. Guilie says:

    Very nice, Sue! I love your voice–your characters come through so intensely, even in few words. And yes–I’m hooked 🙂 Have a fantastic holiday & safe travels–and hurry back to give us more 😀

  9. So curious as to what happened between him and Alicia, and how his new lover will react. Well done!

  10. I don’t think I’d like to hear about his past love affairs. Wonder how she’ll react.

    Have a nice Christmas!

  11. epbeaumont says:

    All right, the events described herein are horrific, but I laughed aloud–because one person’s tragedy is another person’s hassle-filled day at work. All a matter of perspective.

  12. Alix Cameron says:

    Great story, wonderful snippet. Well done.

  13. The set-up for this is just as fantastic as the Six. Great mood, Sue. I missed you last week, too! Enjoy your travels and be safe. I hope your book arrives soon and I’ll see you next year! ❤

  14. Intriguing perspective on 1930’s Chicago!

  15. Sue says:

    Thank you Jessica!

  16. Juli Hoffman says:

    “Shush, it is not important…” I’m surprised she let herself be shushed! LOL Have a happy holiday!

  17. jennajaxon says:

    Six sentences is not enough! I can’t wait to read the whole thing. Him shushing her is so cute! Great six!
