Six Sentence Sunday #8

 

 

 

Last week, Otis got in the taxi with Tori, telling her that he was sorry to hear that her mother was missing.

This six picks up, where Tori is driving the taxi up main street, Otis is in the passenger seat.

(He is over 80 and can hardly see! Welcome to Starlight Cove!!)

 

An old man wearing a lighted miner’s cap rushed out into the foggy road and held up his palms. Come on, she was only going 12 mph and the only vehicle in the road.  He kept glancing down at his spread eagle feet while he held up his hand towards the taxi. Tori looked to the right and then to the left for a pedestrian wanting to cross the street. No sign of anyone.

Was that Mayor Carver?  What was he up to in that hat?

Six Sentence Sunday #7

 

 

 

Last week, Tori had just landed in Starlight Cove. When the ferry landed she found Otis and Janine waiting for her. This section is after they say hello and Otis offers to drive her up Main St. Hill to her mom’s house. ~

After he put her bag into the trunk, Otis opened the back door and climbed in the backseat beside her. Tori did a double take. He sat looking straight ahead, his skin thin and crinkled like worn parchment.

“I’m sorry to hear the news about your mom Satori. Everyone loves that lady.” He took a handkerchief from his inside jacket pocket and blotted his eyes. “I hope they find her soon.”

Six Sentence Sunday #6

 

 

 

Recap: Last week Satori had just arrived in Starlight Cove to find her missing mother.

Here is this weeks six 🙂

Out of the mists, the familiar yellow curves of Janine came into focus. Otis Meriwether was bent over her, buffing the curves of his beloved taxi. Janine looked like she was ready to whisk Tori away to a speakeasy. Some things never change. Otis had been driving that taxi since cars landed on the island.

“Hello Otis.”

Happy Sunday!

Since I was tagged not once, but twice, this week for the 777 challenge, I am using my passage from the second 777 challenge today.

This is from my WIP. This scene is where Satori has just learned her mother is missing and heads back to her childhood home.

The stars twinkled on the cheerful ‘Welcome to Starlight Cove’ sign up on the hill. They’d always flickered, but now there was more flicker than light. Town council hadn’t gotten around to voting on fixing the lights, they were still debating Stella’s delivery date.

The thick fog parted like a gossamer curtain as Tori made her way around the circle. She did a double take when she saw a figure sitting atop of the old R&R building. As she walked further around, Tori’s eyes realized it was Mrs. Potter sitting on the roof with binoculars pointed further ahead.

“The song bird has landed,” drifted down from the handset in Mrs. Potter’s hands.

Since it is Father’s Day, the first without my dad, I chose a special passage from my WIP.  It’s more than six this week…..

 

Tori pleaded, “Daddy please don’t leave me.”

Dark hair whipped around her face as she struggled to reach him. What was happening?    

“Magic won’t let him stay Satori. We have to say good-bye”  

Good-bye? Magic was a gift.

Daddy walked into the pool of moonlight and blew her a kiss. Her eyes continued to spill tears as the father she adored evaporated into a thousand slivers of light, spun into a vortex, and spilled into the pond.

Daddy was gone. Magic took him.

This week I am posting six sentences from my WIP, Siren Song…

A dense cloud lurked on the surface of the water ahead as the ferry plunged into darkness. No lights in the distance, just pitch black. The fog gnawed away at the boat like a hungry monster.

The fog-horn thundered behind Tori. The sound sent shivers straight through her wool coat. Salty sea air misted over her face, leaving a sticky film as she strolled on the deck toward the shrinking Seattle skyline.

Your comments are always welcome and very much appreciated.

Six Sentence Sunday 5/20/12

 

This is from a WIP hiding in the shadows of a cyber drawer. She’s been haunting me for a while. I may need to pull Diana out again and whip this story into shape. Please let me know what you think.

 

“It is me foolish girl. We have work to do.”

The voice was musical and seemed to linger right next to Diana’s ear. She looked down at the fresh tattoo on her arm.

“Good, you can hear me.” The tattooed geisha was now looking up, directly into Diana’s eyes.

 

This is my second SSS. Please make sure to visit the other participants! Happy Sunday!

Thank you to Nicolette Reed for introducing me to it! *waves hello

 

My six sentences are from my wip, Dragon Blues.

Vauhn Blue scratched the spiral birthmark on her ankle. The red mark had become hard and itchy the last few days. Just what she needed, a crazy skin disorder like psoriasis, right before the Last Blast Junior Prom.

“Keep scratching that and it’s going to get infected Sparky.” Gramma said as she walked up the steps with an arm load of cherries.

Gramma took the family legend seriously. The Blue’s descended from dragons. 

 

The SSS is open to all genres. Post six sentences from your own published work or a Work In Progress. You can click here, SSS, to find out more about it.
