5/13/12 Six Sentence Sunday

Hi everyone! Happy Mother’s Day! This week is a continuation from my excerpt, Bonded in Exile. Thanks for stopping by every week and for leaving your comments 🙂

A gelatinous flow of blood covered Silas’ foot where it pooled in his boot. “Umm…Silas?” Emily tried to keep her voice steady. Whether Riley had spoken the truth or not, her heart was having trouble catching up to her head. She had serious feelings for Silas and genuine concern for his health. “You’ve lost a lot of blood here.”

    Yeesh! Poor Silas. I know he was being heroic to care for her first, but I hope that wasn’t a mistake!

  9. Yikes. I have trouble cleaning wounds, even little ones. And she’ll have to sew it… Guess we’ll see how tough Emily is! She’ll have to do it, to save him.

    “Her heart was having trouble catching up to her head.” <<< I loved this line for so many reasons. There are feelings and love, now how will she handle all this blood?!

  12. I love how she almost takes that lighthearted approach – great contrast to what she’s feeling and to the seriousness of the situation. Love this story!
