I participated in my first Six Sentence Sunday last weekend. Wow! What fun! I can see how this might become addictive.
Thank you to everyone for stopping by and commenting on my post last week! I appreciate it! I was grinning for two days. :)
So, I'm back for another week.
This is an excerpt from that same older Work in Progress, Unavoidable Legacies.
These six sentences are also from the prologue. Like I mentioned last week, this is a scene between two secondary characters, whose activities set the rest of the book in motion. Last week, we had a six lines in Grace's point of view. John and Grace were fighting.
Unable to get the reaction she wants from John, Grace jumps into her car and speeds away. A moment later, her car flies off the snowy road and into the lake.
Here are my six from John's POV:
*****He had killed her. If he'd been driving Grace’s sports car when the useless thing had broken through the barrier and crashed into the icy lake, then no one would question his confession. As it was, no one would listen to him.
John leaned against the silent ambulance and watched the grim-faced emergency crew try to find her in the murky depths. Why was it taking so long?
With each passing moment, John's body grew increasingly numb until he was sure he could follow Grace, plunge into that same dark water, and not feel a bloody thing.
