SSS: April 29 #sixsunday

28 Apr

Welcome back for another Sunday, Sixers!  Today’s post is another short installment from my WIP, Semester of Thursdays.  This snippet reveals Meredith Westbrook dealing with an overly amorous suitor on her first Thursday night out with her best friend, Lena Whyte.

 “What’s wrong with your friend?” Billy asked Lena, his voice loud enough to carry over the crackling bass.

“She’s sober,” Lena said sadly, as if that single fact should have explained the world’s mysteries.

“And I’m not interested in you,” I said, praying the blunt words would penetrate his thick skull.

“I just want you to know that you’re the first girl to ever turn me down,” he shot back.

I inspected Billy from his brillo-pad hair to his too-tight t-shirt holding him in like a cheap, cotton corset.  “I highly doubt that.”

I truly appreciate you taking the time to read my six!  If you’re interested in participating, check out Six Sunday, sign up, and choose six sentences to post next Sunday!

Here are a few of my favorites from today’s SSS: Siobhan Muir (a Vamp Six); Layna Pimentel (a Historical Six); Kelly Seguin (an Intriguing Six); Melissa Mackinnon (a Waiting Six); Patricia Ann Preston (a Yard Sale Six); Angela Quarles (a Tense Six); Donna Cummings (a Great Six); Alisha Robinson (a Frustrated Six)
