Welcome to “Six Sentence Sunday”. Thank you for visiting and especially for any comments.
This six comes from my unpublished novella, Prometheus Unstitched, about a prickly superhero costume designer named Cory Blindbarrow, and one of her customers, Theo Richelieu, aka Prometheus Man.
Immediately prior to this six, the pair had discussed the unusual physical effects Theo had on Cory. When he kissed her, the silver streaks in her hair turned black. The effect was temporary, however, so Theo experimented with a repeated kiss and determined the cause. Cory is none to happy with his conclusion, though she can’t deny the truth of it. Theo speaks here:
You want me. You don’t want to want me, but you do, or at least your body does, so much even your hair is aroused by me.” Again he chuckled, loud and hearty. Between guffaws, he choked out, “Welcome to my world and that of every boy beginning at adolescence. It’s not so fun sporting evidence of desire, is it? Kind of embarrassing, eh?
Yikes! I think that would be very embarrassing and one reason (of many gazillions) I’m glad I’m a woman and not a man. Ha!
Be sure to check out the host site, Six Sentence Sunday, for links to more tantalizing snippets from some very talented writers.
What an embarrassing condition to have! Poor Cory! Although it would save on her hair color touch-ups, wouldn’t it? I too am thankful for my womanhood status. Sensational six, Claire!
Oooo, look at your NaNo bar! Rock on Sister!
Very embarrassing indeed, especially when she’s not even sure she likes him. LOL Thanks, Sandra. 🙂
Hehehe! You had me at “superhero costume designer” 😀 I definitely want to read more of this! ^_^
This one was great fun for a former seamstress like me. Thanks, Kelly.
Ha! ‘Sporting evidence of desire’. 😉 Perfect.
**snicker** Thanks, Aimee. 🙂
Yup they both exhibit tell-tale signs of arousal. Which sounds like fun to me. *ahem* That is, makes for a great read. 😉
It certainly evens the playing field. Thanks, Ryan.
lol, “even your hair is aroused by me.” Great snippet!
Thanks, Gayle, for the read and comment.
that “even your hair is aroused by me” line is wonderful
Thanks, Jayel! 🙂
I like this….love that she hasn’t something about her that is so telling and the humor he has about it. Nicely written 🙂
Loved your Six…beautifully writen and I loved the humor 🙂
Thank you, Christine. Sorry my blog spammed your comments. But I rescued them.
Lol, that would be embarrassing. : )
Yes indeedy. thanks for dropping by, Roni.
Fun six. Made me smile.
Thanks, Cara and thanks for dropping by.
LOL! Yep, sure glad I’m not a man. Very funny six.
Thanks, Karysa (like that spelling, btw), and thanks for dropping by.
I almost had visions of her having a hair-stiffy but that’s just my twisted head being ‘wrong’. Evidenced further by the distractiveness of how close the nipple is to your name on your front cover. 😛
heh-heh, Too much Final Net perhaps. Your eyes just always want to go to that nip, don’t they? LOL
Ha! Love it! Hair hardons for women. Awesome snip.
Thanks, Jo. Hair hard-ons..snort.
Haha SO funny!
Thank you!! 🙂
lol, maybe she should consider dyeing the give-away streaks? 😛
Ah…but alas they are the most stubborn silver streaks, impervious to dyes. Thanks for the read and comment!
What a great exchange! Love how the shoe is on the other foot, so to speak. Too often it is men who are caught flatfooted, open-mouthed and twitterpated by women. women hold the true power when it comes to eliciting desire.
Have I told you how much I love the title? Writing about Mary Shelley’s time period and the triangles and mysteries inherit therin, this just strikes a chord.
Ah, you’re too kind. I wish I were as clever as you’ve made me, though I’ll take a bow on the title cause I happen to love it too. It’s actually a contemporary, paranormal romance, but you did correctly pick up that the heroine seems like a throw back to an older generation, probably because she was raised by her grandfather. But she does have a bit of a Dr. Frankenstein air to her in what she does for a living.
Now you`ve piqued my interest… How heavy is the romance? I’m not big on romance but I am big on great writing and am trying to expand my reading boundaries.
The romance…well…I’m not sure. Not trying to be vague but this story started off as more erotica-lite than romance, then I upped the heat some, then I got a revise and resubmit from a publisher wanting more development of the story / world beyond the romance, so it’s been modified twice now. I’ve passed it back and forth between Claire and Lila (my higher heat pen name) but now I’m claiming it. The world-building part is actually pretty fun cause it gives me more chances to hone the main character’s curmudgeonliness (is that a word?). I’ve been tweaking throughout NaNo but need to finish it up and resubmit ASAP! Thanks for reading and commenting! 🙂 I love having you visit my blog, by the way. I hope you’re doing the Dec blog chain. 🙂
