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.
The Misfits is a group of four couples, consisting of four who work as part of the mid-management team for the devil, Mr.D, as soul collectors, and their partners, who are human.
One couple is Eve and Victor. At this point I am not offering snippets of how they met, it’s an entire chapter and still in note mode. Last week we shared Eve’s thoughts before she met Victor, he’s an agent. Today we see Eve through Charles’ (human) POV. They’ve been friends for five years and it’s the evening they are all gathered together to welcome Phoebe to the group.
Charles realised Eve was speaking to Phoebe.
This should be interesting.
He knew the two women would have had nothing to chat about five years ago.
Eve looked terrific in her tight jeans and silk shirt that showed off her curves, unlike her former wardrobe of haphazardly slapped on pieces of clothing.
Since she met Victor her self-confidence had risen immensely, and the change delighted Charles.
She spoke her mind fearlessly to the point of audaciousness; though when she felt uncomfortable, she reverted to her former insecurity.
Charles is very observant. It’s helpful to see Eve through his eyes, because someone outside the releationship is more objective, even if he likes her. In some ways, we get a better take on her personality from an outsider POV. Nice six!
charles and Eve have been good friends for five years. Their friendship was cemented when they were out togeether two years ago and met Beth and Victor. Now Charles and Beth and Eve and Victor are part of the same circle of friends.
It’s interesting how someone can shape a person into an entirely different person. Nice six!
Well Victor made a diamond out of a rough diamond. In this case, it’s all good
I like how Charles quietly observes Eve while she speaks to another. He quickly assesses her without her knowledge. I wonder what Charles will do with his info?!
Charles hasn’t told us anything he hasn’t told Eve. He’s in a thoughtful mood.
Friends are either the worst enablers or best observers. Very telling no matter which perspective is chosen. Excellent use of it here.
Thank you! in this case best observer
I love a man who is observant and she doesn’t seem to know he’s checking her out. Can’t wait to see what happens next week. Fantastic Six. 🙂
He’s not checking her out lol He’s thinking about this group of friends Eve and Charles are good friends now.
You packed a lot of info into your six….loved learning about Eve through Charles observations.
thank you! that was my point and thought it a good way to learn more about her
Love how you portray Eve here 🙂 Well done
thanks Zee! It’s been a while…
Gotta love a woman who speaks her mind 🙂
She does now, she’s more confident
😀 Nice contrast between before and after
wonder who gave me that idea?
Talk about checking this woman out… I like that he not only notices her clothes, but the recognizes her insecurities, too. Great six!
for the full story will have to read the book, if I ever finish writing it
Oh, I like the insight into her character.
Thank you. I’ll have more next week
Wow – she sounds so different from how she was in last week’s snippet! Nice insight into her, and her lingering insecurities. 🙂
thank you. That was the point. Some would argue that it shouldn’t take a man to make a woman a woman but sometimes it does
Through another’s eyes we learn Eve’s metamorphosis. Great six!
and great comment 😀
Nice peek into Eve’s personality! Clothes slapped on sounds like how I normally dress 😉
I hadn’t noticed 😀
Intriguing six. I like seeing a character’s personality presented through another one’s viewpoint. This is even more interesting since there’s a lot of history between them. 🙂
thank you for that lovely comment!
An observant male? Cool. Love men who pay attention.
well he does pay attention but Eve is a very good friend not a “person of interest” 😀
I do love an ensemble cast! Great to see the characters through the eyes of their friends/enemies/lovers. Insightful six!
yes it is an ensemble group, no enemies though within the group. Thank you
He watches her pretty closely. Just observant, or something more? It’s interesting to see how the group goes together and to see it from different POVs.
Nothing more. Yes I like dfferent POV gives fuller picture of the character. Thank you
The fact that he’s so pleased with her self-confidence is a good sign.
