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.
It may be April 1 but no fools in this group! 😀
I thought you may wish to know more about a couple of the side characters. They do not appear in the rest of the story.
Mrs. Hodgson played regularly with the other small landlords in the neighbourhood and held a high degree of expertise in the game of Whist.
She said little and worked her cards skillfully.
When she did speak, she pursed her lips as if a sour pickle had stuck in her throat.
Kathryn enjoyed conversing with Muriel since they had much in common, but it was fortunate that the seamstress’ job did not involve contact with others and she did not have to get up in front of a class to lecture.
Muriel’s voice sounded very high pitched, as if pricked by one of her sewing needles, thus making it uncomfortable to chat with her for any length of time.
Talking to Muriel reduced the distraction of Mr. Thomas, whose presence she was unable to ignore; like a light just outside her peripheral vision, he intruded into her consciousness.
