Six Sentence Sunday Nov 25

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.

Set up: Thanksgiving dinner at Charles and Beth’s home (they have the largest kitchen and dining room) Mryth mentioned to Gideon that he has much to be thankful for this year since meeting Phoebe. Then the conversation somehow turned to a discussion about the entire group (Victor is French)
And a reminder: The Regulations permit sexual encounters with humans, not to exceed thirty days with one individual.

Victor raised his head from his plate, gazed around the table with his whiskey coloured eyes, and thinking out loud said, “Eh bien. We are misfits, all of us. We work for the devil and yet have long-term human partners. We are in a class by ourselves, different from the other agents, or so I assume though I do not know for a fact…”

His voice drifted off as the implication fully set in.

    If he’s correct, and they are different, one wonders why they are allowed to be so. And if others have long term relationships, why have the rule? I’m dying to find out where this is going! Great, provocative snippet!

  2. Jessica Subject says:

    Yes, why are they the exception? And what does the devil expect in return? Great six! 🙂

  3. DebE says:

    Yep. I’m seeing a lot of potential for good tension and upset, here. And nice effort on the Nano front, too!

  4. A really interesting six! Great job xx

  5. FCEtier says:

    Ma première femme était dans ce groupe. Belle six!

  6. Carrie Crain says:

    You did a wonderful job showing what could be considered a conflict Victor is experiencing with what he said versus the change in his voice. Really nice, Sue! Keep up the good work.

  7. Very intriguing, Sue! I’m curious to see where this goes! 🙂

  8. Gemma Parkes says:

    l love his ‘whiskey coloured eyes’ wonderful detail in this six!

  9. Gem Sivad says:

    I agree with Gemma. I love your vivid descriptions.

  10. J.A. Beard says:

    Good world-building that also raises some interesting questions.

  11. He’s very plain about what he means, isn’t he? I hope that the boldness of all their actions doesn’t come crashing down on them. Fun snippet.

  12. Very interesting setup. I’m very intrigued by this.

  13. Elin Gregory says:

    Hmm, what’s the pay off going to be? Surely there’s a reason for the ban?

  14. This is so so good. Love his ‘whiskey colored eyes’ how sexy. I am very excited to see what happens next. 🙂 Great Six!

  15. Vivien Dean says:

    Raises all sorts of fascinating questions, doesn’t it? Thanks for sharing!

  16. Mae Clair says:

    I know I’ve missed a lot of these. Curious about the 30-day regulation and why they are allowed to have long-term partners when it is against the rules. Such an interesting mythology you’re setting up with this group of “misfits.”

  17. Curious! You make me wonder what’s going on with this ‘special’ group. Very nice six!

  18. Ana says:

    True enough, aren’t we all misfits in a way?

  19. Cara Bristol says:

    Curious…do they ever rebel against the devil? How does that affect their relationships, I wonder? They seem so calm for a situation that is rather dramatic.

  20. Such an intriguing group and premise! Looking forward to more as always!
