Awakening A Witch #12 - Six Sentence Sunday

I've decided to finish the Six Sentence Sunday blog hop with the same story - Awakening a Witch - so, that's what I'll be featuring to the end of January. For earlier excerpts from this historical paranormal romance work-in-progress, click here.


*****

Set Up: This excerpt follows shortly after my last post on this story. Alex rescued Mattie from a storm, and now they are alone in a little cottage. Mattie is incredibly cold, and her gown is soaked. At last, she acquiesces to his suggestion to remove her gown.

My Six (This is in Mattie's POV.  Bess is Mattie's sister.):
 
          Alex crossed the room to the window and opened the shutters, which sent the wind whistling through the opening and circling through the room.  True to his word, Alex turned so he wasn't looking at her, but he was still right there... a few steps away. 
          More to the point, she could see him
          Bess would be mortified.  Oh, who was she fooling?  She was mortified.

Mortified but apparently not looking away! I liked the emotion in this snippet...enjoying the story very much.

I love her thoughts in this, especially that last one. Curious about why he opened the window and let cold air in when she's already chilled. But at least if he's looking outside he isn't looking at her, in theory.

Anastasia Vitsky said...

Oh, mortified? I wonder why.

Delightful six! I'm shivering just reading it. :) I'm glad there will be more of it to read in the waning weeks of Six Sentence Sunday.

I love that internal dialog, where she tries to fool herself, then immediately calls herself on it!
