5/20/12 Six Sentence Sunday

Hi everyone! This week continues my excerpt from Bonded in Exile. Thank you all for stopping by every Sunday and leaving your comments 🙂 Have a great week!

Silas reached for Emily’s wrist to help her off the floor. “The bleeding will stop once it’s stitched up; I heal quickly. It’s all right, Emily, you don’t have to do this, you know. I can take care of myself, I do it all the time.”  

“No,” she said, pulling her arm back to avoid his grasp, “I’m not wimping out, I’m just saying, I know knife wounds and this is a bad one. Now take you pants off so I can see how deep it is.”

  3. I know this is a serious scene and that Silas needs help – but I can’t help but grin when she tells him to take off his pants. I’m glad he’ll be okay. 🙂

  5. What a place to end things! I like the tight-rope balancing act you have going on between these two characters. She’s definitely the one in charge in this scene!

    I’m always intrigued by the tension between these two. You’ve got me wondering, Melynda.
