Six Sentence Sunday 4/3


She walked along the flower-lined path to the street, where she had parked her car. The bright begonia petals seemed to flourish in the August heat. Too bad she didn’t. The mid-afternoon sun beat down on her and the camisole beneath her short-sleeved jacket clung to her back. As she approached her car, Cassie dug in her tote for her key fob. As she aimed the fob, she heard footsteps behind her. “Miss Delaney, please…” Cassie looked over her shoulder and saw Lucinda hurrying down the front steps.

For those new to this, the rules are simple:

1) pick a project – a current Work in Progress, contracted work or even something readers can buy if you’re published

2) pick six sentences

3) post ‘em on Sunday

See? Easy. Want to join in? See the site for information on how to do just that: Six Sentence Sunday.

  1. Love the comparison to the flowers. Instantly get a feeling for the wilting heat she’s feeling, and sets the tone for whatever unwelcome or withering thing Lucinda is about to tell her.

  2. Interesting hook there at the end

  3. Good scene-setting, makes the reader feel the heat.
