Six Sentence Sunday – Silk pt 1

Six Sentence Sunday is here once more! Thanks, as always to the lovely peeps at Six Sentence Sunday for this awesome initiative.

We take a break from Rough Diamond this week to feature another work in progress. Tentatively titled Silk*, this is the tale of a straight-laced English barrister who just wants to be an upstanding Member of Parliament. Unfortunately, the return of a childhood friend, a seemingly frivilous lady, has him entertaining all manner of thoughts that should never cross his mind…

“Do you know what I’m hearing, Thomas? I’m hearing a vast amount of what I should not be doing, when you’ve not even greeted me properly. Why, you’ve yet to kiss my hand, or perhaps give me a h-hug.”

Helpless, he stared at her. How did she do it? She’d been here less than five minutes, and already she had drawn him back in.

Thanks for dropping by, peeps!

*This will definately change. At the moment, not too sure what the title will be. It will come to me, though, never fear!

  2. She sounds like quite a lady!

  3. Seems like she’s going to prove a real distraction!

  4. Love the story premise. It sounds like an enjoyable read.

  5. Jessica Subject

    Love how she weakens him so. Nice six! 🙂

  6. Oh, I love her delicate, hitch in breath. He’s so toast.

  7. Methinks he wants to be drawn back in, at least a little? Excellent excerpt!

  8. I like the way you describe the effect she has on him. I’m thinking his attempts to be dignified may fail. Excellent six, Cassandra!

  9. Well, he’s trying to be strait-laced. Not sure he’ll succeed, though.

  10. Thanks for all your wonderful comments! This story is just taking its tottering first steps, but I think it might turn into something special 😀

  11. Love their interaction. This sounds like it’ll be a lot of fun watching him come undone. 🙂
