Because I can’t count to six, I was disqualified from Six Sentence Sunday last week. I humbly apologize to my Kindergarten teacher.
The scene I posted last week has a second paragraph, so I’m going to post that today, and next week, I’ll start in on the first chapter.
Last week, Sam was watching Delilah as she held her hands above her spinning turntables. You can read those seven here.
Tommy took hold of her arm like it was a pole, not to pull her away, but to remind her there was a world outside of her head.
It was rough, but what pissed Sam off was the screwy wiring in her head that interpreted the gesture as affection.
She sighed, nodded, and whispered, “I know.”
She switched off the power, rolled the cables with care, and secured the implements of her private religion into their coffin.
Neither man offered to take the heavy box as they left.
No one touched Delilah’s turntables but her.
