Welcome to “Six Sentence Sunday”. Thank you for visiting and especially for any comments you might feel inclined to offer.
Today’s six comes once again from a novelette I’m writing as a companion to my debut novel, The P.U.R.E. In this six, there’s a huge crowd at our hero, Jon Cripps’ family home for a holiday meal. Jon’s brother Jason, Jason’s girlfriend, Kat, and Jason’s best gal pal, Tully, take their turn adding to the dinner time drama. Tully speaks to Kat first:
Jason obviously doesn’t date you for your sweeping intellect, does he?”
“Sandbox friends only go so far, honey. When boys grow into men, they want a real woman to play with,” she paused and pointedly looked Tully up and down, “not a third wheel buddy.” [Kat] gave a disdainful puff of air through perfectly lacquered lips to punctuate her jab.
“My experience has been skanks get no thanks, but good friends transcend to the end.” Tully cast her eyes to Jason, who sagged a little in his chair.
Rowrr!! Cat fight in ten, nine, eight…
