Welcome to “Six Sentence Sunday”. Thank you for visiting and especially for any comments you might feel inclined to offer.
This six comes from my story in Tidal Whispers, an ocean creature themed anthology that releases tomorrow from J. Taylor Publishing. My story is called “The Sweetest Song” and features a siren, Circe, and the captain of the only fishing vessel ever to have eluded her destructive clutches, not once but three times.
In this scene, Circe is trying to leave Otis because she realizes he may be more dangerous to her heart than she could ever be to his fishing boat.
Otis didn’t say a word but caught hold of her hand and brought it to his lips. She stepped closer, close enough for him to slide his other hand around her waist and draw her near. His lips descended to drop a light kiss on hers.
It wasn’t enough. One kiss would never be enough.
