Six Sentence Sunday...

Welcome to another Six Sentence Sunday! It’s the year 2088 and the setting is a mining colony on the Moon of Esther. Today we carry straight on from last week where our mysterious heroine is bravely going forth to meet her assigned husband for the first time. She's just stepped off the shuttle and slipped on some gravel (as you do) and….

A strong hand grasped her elbow and a steady grip hauled her upright.
“Careful,” a man muttered and released her.
Louise reined in the palpitations and took her first good look at her savior. “Thank you, I'm...”
Shit, no.
They said Gideon would meet her but this was not the man she’d married, couldn’t be. 


  1. It's good to see that even in 2088 people continue to use fake profiles :-) The intrigue builds...

  2. I love how in a mining colony, shuttles still land on work-a-day gravel, as opposed to high-tech plastic stuff. I've been in mining towns. Gravel is MUCH more likely! Oh, Ms Scott you are a teasy-tease!

  3. Love the surprise in her "voice"! Nothing like a bit of a shock to get the system going! Great job!

  4. FABULOUS! I can totally envision her surprise.

  5. Enjoyed your six....these 5 words said a ton:

    Louise reined in the palpitations

  6. Damn it! You can't stop there! (I'm so intrigued by this story, Kylie. Can you tell?) ;D

  7. Okay, so THIS raises a lot of questions...! Nice going, and great six.

  8. Intriguing! I really enjoy the voice of the main character - terrific snippet!

  9. Fantastic Six! Very, very intriguing!
