Last week, I posted the prologue of Gossamer, one of my WIPs. There isn’t actually a lot composed on this project, but I do have this little tidbit that may or may not stay. Federal agent Paul Redcloud is investigating an explosion and has gotten permission from the oil company next door to view the scene from their sixth floor balcony. The company, however, has assigned an executive working late, thus already in the building, to escort him. Enjoy.
“Mr. Lambert,” Paul said to the aging frat-boy with the lipstick on his ear, “the sooner I get my ten minutes on that balcony, the sooner you get back to your girlfriend.”
“You are interrupting work, Agent….”
“…Redcloud. Do you have kids, Mr. Lambert?” he asked stepping into the elevator.
“Two,” the man replied warily, “six and three.”
Pushing the button for the sixth floor, Paul said, “XYZ.” The red-faced executive looked down at his pants and hastily pulled his zipper as the doors closed.
Six Sentence Sunday is a blog hop that posts on Sundays, which is a great thing for bloggers who like to post regularly but don’t always have something new to say. I’m participating in two. On Saturday, I’m snarky. On Sunday, I try to tell a story in six sentences. My blog is current, and I don’t even have to be near a computer!
Participation is straightforward. Submit a link to the host site between 6:00 pm Tuesday and 11:59 pm on Saturday. Post a six sentence excerpt on your blog on Sunday, (I schedule! It posts while I’m sleeping.) Six Sentence Sunday posts the blog hop at 9 am on Sunday. It just seems silly not to.
(All times mentioned in this post are US Eastern.)
