Thank you for stopping by! I’m super-duper-thrilled that the school year has ended and I now have time to write and write and write. And read all of the gripping, sexy, lyrical sentences by Six Sentence authors. 🙂
The following is from Swashbuckler, my forever-work-in-progress. In this scene we learn a little more of Rachel’s back story. The set-up is that she’s just been shown to her cabin after a day of river rafting in Costa Rica (which also included a terrifying tumble into the rapids). Alfredo is the river guide responsible for her safety.
“Now you have nothing to fear,” Alfredo said, the back of his hand moving softly, protectively down her cheek. “You have already swam in the rapids–what else is there to be afraid of?” With those words he ducked out of the cabin, leaving Rachel alone.
Nothing to fear. “I wish,” she said aloud as she peeled off her clothes for that promised shower.
She could think of plenty of things to be afraid of.
Any ideas on what keeps Rachel up at night?
