Six Sentence Sunday: July 29, 2012 #sixsunday

28 Jul

Happy Final-Sunday-in-July, Sixers!  This week I’m posting another six from my debut novel, The Mirrors at Barnard Hall.  This scene is a continuation of last week’s six from the first time Callista Franklyn sees a handsome stranger inside of her antique mirror.

{Synopsis: Callista Franklyn’s return to her family’s mansion in the English countryside stirs up more than memories of ghostly childhood friends when she discovers the very real, and very handsome, Nick Dalton in the reflection of her antique mirror.

The problem? Beyond the fact that he appears to reside in a mirror, historical records say Nick died in 1902.

Callista is intrigued by Nick’s claim that the year is 1902, so she investigates and uncovers a timeline of suspicious crimes and enchanted mirrors that connect her to the twentieth century. She also realizes that she’s falling for Nick, who is condemned to be murdered in August.

As the date of Nick’s impending death approaches, Callista must decide if she’s willing to risk changing history and erasing her place in the modern world in order to prevent the tragic crime and save the man she loves.}

“Perhaps you’ve suppressed the memory,” I suggested. 

He heaved a sigh, and I found myself wondering if ghosts needed to breathe or if it was simply a force of habit?

“If I am a ghost—which I am most certainly not—then you must be a ghost too.”

“I am not a ghost.”  That was the most ridiculous assumption I had ever heard.

“And what proof do you offer to justify such a statement?”

    Proof, good luck with that 🙂 They’re starting to get a bit pushy, tension is building, what’s going to happen?! Enticing 6.

    I am loving this. Now, every time I pass an antique mirror, I think of your story!!

      Awesome! You have to let me know if you see anyone inside who doesn’t look like you!

    I love that they’re arguing about who’s a ghost. More and more this makes me think of The Others (with Nicole Kidman).

      Oh, I remember that movie! Yes, this scene does fall along those lines. Great catch!

    Fun six. I wonder how they’re going to put this ghost argument to rest! LOL

    Hmmm in the habit of breathing. I bet it would be really hard to give up because drawing breath, sighing, the snort, the heave of the chest are all part of physical communication. Nice thought provoking six.
