Six Sentence Sunday Aug 5

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.


set up: Victor is the homeowner, Charles is a friend. Three couples are awaiting the arrival of Gideon and Phoebe, who they haven’t met. It’s a slow chapter but a necessary one.

The door bell chimed the opening bars of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony.

“That must be Gideon, at last.”

Charles rose from the navy blue leather couch, brushed peanut salt from his hands and strode quickly to the entrance-way.

Judging from the high-pitched titters and deep murmurs flowing from the kitchen, Victor and Eve were occupied with more than food preparation.

He shook his head in amusement.

The couple in the kitchen had been together for two years yet they still acted like teenagers on occasion.; and come to think of it people had accused him and Beth, also together for two years, of the same thing, at times.
