Welcome to my fourth “Six Sentence Sunday”. Thank you for visiting and especially for any comments you might leave me.
This six, like last week’s, comes from an urban fantasy novel I completed a first draft of last summer, book 1 from The Land Of Enchantment series: My Fair Vampire.
Our heroine, Dori, is a newly created, but incredibly inept vampire. Her sire is nearly ready to stake her himself, she’s been so difficult.
In this scene, Dori’s just delivered a tongue-lashing to Donovan, after discovering the despicable truth behind his latest training technique. Donovan responds:
You can just climb right down off your high horse, sweetheart, because guess what? Whether you like it not, you’re now at the top of the food chain with the rest of us. There is nothing dishonorable about doing whatever it takes to survive. My job is to teach you how to do that in a world that doesn’t embrace us with open arms, doesn’t want to know about us, can’t know about us. There are no fast food joints for our kind. Hell, there’s not even a 7-11.
