Six Sentence Sunday #21

Happy Six Sunday. Thanks for visiting and I’d love to know what you think!! I’m continuing this week with another 6 from my Novella WIP. Last week: over the last two weeks actually, Jake has been rolling out his plan. Lydia has been anything but scared away. This week: they’ve just made plans to go back to her place…after they get their work done. He’s taken hold of her hand and it’s taken both of their attentions.

A humming filled her whole body with contentment. She felt at home in his firm grip. His thumb caressed the back of her hand. Her knees threatened to soften, but her shoulders straightened fueling her strength.

She tugged on his hand and dragged him back to the table. “Let’s get back to work so we can get out of here.”

I like the way she thinks. Thank you so much for stopping by today!! I’d like to know what you really think of my 6. I need the advice, I’m a newbie and have much to learn. I have good news to share. I sent this WIP I’ve been sharing to my friend for its first non-me read through. YEAH!! Gosh I hope she likes it. I’ll let you know.

Don’t forget to check out the other Six Sunday authors. Lots of good stuff at Six Sunday. Try to find a new favorite today. happy hunting!

    • Thank you, Sandra!! ((hugs)) I sent it to the CP last night!! WOOT!! She’s working away on it as we speak. I should know more soon. My fingers are so crossed my knuckles are cracking…or breaking, lol

  1. Nice job, S. J. She’s strong to resist that type of longing and contentment she finds in his arms. Nice six. Can’t wait for next week–want to see where this leads.

  2. I liked the phrase about “feeling at home”, nice! Terrific that she had such willpower, as far as finishing the work but I’m with everyone else – she should let go and have some fun! Great six!

  3. Lots of emotion in this six! Great job! And it includes one of my favorite caresses – the deceptively simple rubbing of the thumb over the top of a hand. Love it!

  4. I like this. It’s soft and gentle – apart from the word ‘grip’. Most of the other vowels are quite long, adding to the languid mood. “Grip” is bitten off short. In English English I’d suggest ‘grasp’ as a substitute because that has a long ahhh sound to it, but I’m not sure it would work in US English. Nice 6.
