Awakening a Witch #5 - Six Sentence Sunday

My Poppy
Today is Remembrance Day, and we always observe the day by attending a ceremony in our community. I'm proud of my honey, who is a veteran, and I'm thankful to everyone who has served. 

Therefore, I will not making Six Sentence Sunday rounds on Sunday - we'll be spending the day with family, friends and other veterans instead - but I promise to visit after that!  :)

*****

The last few weeks I've been highlighting some excerpts from my historical paranormal romance work in progress, Awakening A Witch.  Click here to read earlier posts.


*****

Set Up: When Mattie's necklace comes loose and falls to the earth, a strange fatigue falls over her.  As her legs collapse beneath her, Alex (our hero) catches her.  Tom is Alex's younger brother.

My Six:
          "Look at this," Tom said, awe coating his words as he dangled a necklace with a horrendously familiar shape and construction.  "It's hers."
          Although his heart thudded like a war drum in his chest, Alex tempered his reaction. "Are you sure?"
          "Aye, it fell off her just before she fainted."
          Alex glanced at the unconscious woman in his arms - was he holding a witch?

Thank you for stopping by to check out my six! I hope you enjoyed them.

Yes, I want to know what the connection is between the necklace and the woman. Nice six!

Donna Cummings said...

This is a very intriguing story! I love all the snippets. :)

Frank Fisher said...

Interesting! The necklace must be of great significance to the woman. I wonder why he refers to her as a witch?

Jess Schira said...

Curiouser and curiouser. Have a wonderful day with your family.

gemma parkes said...

Ooh, is she? Or is there another reason she was wearing it? Intriguing six.

Sarah Ballance said...

Wow ... I'm right there with him. Can't wait to see what's next! Have a wonderful day. ;c)

J.M. Blackman said...

This is so mysterious. I love where you're heading with this and the description puts the reader right there. Enjoy your day!

sue said...

is there a problem if she is a witch??

Karysa Faire said...

Really nice. So he's afraid of/despises witches? Just how will the two of them overcome that to fall in love? ;-)

S. J. Maylee said...

Oh, Lorraine, I can feel his fear and worry. Fabulous 6.

Jenna said...

The necklace is a source of her strength it seems. Is it also a sign she's a witch? Sounds like he's not thrilled about that. Can't wait for more!

Sue Ann Bowling said...

Sounds like witches are not liked in this society.

Siobhan Muir said...

Great set up for more, Lorraine. :) I like the suspense in his discovery.

Heather Boyd said...

Is he excited by that or concerned? Great six. I want to know more.

patonlorraine said...

Thanks, Jessica! I'm trying to decide which 6 to post next, maybe it'll be about the necklace again... ;)

patonlorraine said...

Thanks, Donna! I've been trying to set the stage. Glad you are enjoying them. :)

patonlorraine said...

Thanks, Frank! The necklace is very significant... and he may know a little more about it than Mattie at this point. :)

patonlorraine said...

Thanks, Jess! It was a great day!

patonlorraine said...

It was given to her as a gift, but... sometimes destiny has a hand in things. :)

patonlorraine said...

Ah, thanks, Sarah! It was certainly a surprise for him! :)

patonlorraine said...

Thank you, J.M.! I had a great day! And I'm glad you're enjoying the excerpts! It is always an interesting process deciding what to post. :)

patonlorraine said...

Alex has a bit of an issue with witches. I think he'll get over it. ;)

patonlorraine said...

Thanks, Karysa! That is certainly a challenge. ;)

patonlorraine said...

Thanks so much, S.J.! I'm glad his feelings came through! :)

patonlorraine said...

Thanks so much, Jenna! I hope you enjoy this week's 6! (Of course, I haven't figured out which 6 those'll be yet. ;) )

patonlorraine said...

Alex, at least, has some issues with witches... but perhaps he'll have to re-evaluate his stance. ;)

patonlorraine said...

Thank you, Siobhan! I'm glad you're enjoying it! :)

patonlorraine said...

Thanks, Heather! I think he is more worried right now, but that might change soon... ;)
