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!
Maybe rules are meant to be broken… even by Mr. D
Yes, why are they the exception? And what does the devil expect in return? Great six! 🙂
Shit sometimes happens even in Hell
Yep. I’m seeing a lot of potential for good tension and upset, here. And nice effort on the Nano front, too!
thank you for both 😀 sorry with my eyes too difficult to read your blog
Thanks for letting me know! I will have to keep that in mind as I make my new site!
A really interesting six! Great job xx
Thanks very much
Ma première femme était dans ce groupe. Belle six!
vraiment? votre femme etait une misfit?
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.
I will but still need your help 😀
Very intriguing, Sue! I’m curious to see where this goes! 🙂
Well now I know where it goes but might take a while before you do
l love his ‘whiskey coloured eyes’ wonderful detail in this six!
thanks as always – had a hell of a time finding your blog
I agree with Gemma. I love your vivid descriptions.
well you wouldn’t love my nano – ideas only no visuals – thank you Gem
Good world-building that also raises some interesting questions.
thank you I agree but may need help in answering them…
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.
spoiler alert – no crashing 😀
Very interesting setup. I’m very intrigued by this.
and that’s a good thing
Hmm, what’s the pay off going to be? Surely there’s a reason for the ban?
I’m working n that one actually
This is so so good. Love his ‘whiskey colored eyes’ how sexy. I am very excited to see what happens next. 🙂 Great Six!
Not sure how much I can get in before it ends. so not sure if you will know I’m such a tease
Raises all sorts of fascinating questions, doesn’t it? Thanks for sharing!
yes it does but they don’t get resolved til the very end 😀
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.”
Curious! You make me wonder what’s going on with this ‘special’ group. Very nice six!
yeah you’ve missed quite a bit of it but lovely to see you
True enough, aren’t we all misfits in a way?
of course we are and it’s a good thing. We’re not boring 😀
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.
You’d have to see the rest of that chapter for lack of calm
Such an intriguing group and premise! Looking forward to more as always!
