Here’s the next go at the Six Sentence Sunday. Today’s comes from a WIP I have called Touch My World and it comes from my Angels All Fire series. The main characters are Gannicus and River. The story is written in first person present, so here goes:
“Unnatural,” she hisses. “I can see it.”
I don’t let her see how those five words unnerve me, saying back, “I wish he’d never met you… you empty-headed, cold-hearted Barbie doll.”
She can’t say what she wants because if she does, then she reveals herself to us both and to her family and I would bet all that I own that her laws state she cannot do so, Gannicus hushes to my mind as I hold her gaze. Blink.
I do as he tells me, though I do it slowly to keep the tears from falling as he hands me his pocket square.

M. LeAnne Phoenix would tell you that the worst time of her life was the two years that she attempted to take off from writing. If you asked her to explain exactly why she did such a thing, you would most likely get the mad attempt to arch an eyebrow like her dad and then a shake of the head as she told you it was unlucky to speak of such things. Suffice it to say, it will never happen again!
Born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas in the mid-1970's, Ms. Phoenix was young and wild (and even free!) during the crazy wondrous decade known as the 1980's and the even crazier but now grungy decade of the 1990's. Music is second only to the muses that live and breathe to fill her mind with beautiful men, and music always helps them to tell their stories. She is never without her iPod or her computer no matter where she goes, although, she does like to hike and take pictures of the sky and the moon, and even the occasional shot of the sun through the branches of a tree.
An avid cat lover, Ms. Phoenix has been owned by many throughout her life, though her current owner is one Gypsy Jo, who really would like for her to step away from the keyboard and pay her some attention! After all, hasn't she earned it?
M. LeAnne Phoenix can be found on Facebook at www.facebook.com/mleannephoenix. As this is her first real foray into the professional world of writing, there will be more social media to come.

that’s a very interesting exchange!
Thankee! I have been wanting to show off that exchange for a long, long time!!!! 😀
Intriguing. I’m really curious about what’s going on in this scene.
I can’t wait for you to see the whole scene! 🙂 Come to think of it, I’ve been tagged in the 7-7-7 game again, so maybe I’ll put up this scene! 🙂
Sounds interesting and I loved the insult – empty-headed cold-hearted Barbie doll, lol 🙂
YAAAAASSSSSSSSSS!!! Now you understand exactly how long I’ve been wanting to show off that line! Sometimes, you just think to yourself, “YE GODS, now THAT’S a good one!” and you just have to tell someone about it.
When I rediscovered that line early this week, I knew exactly what was going on RS #2!!!! 😀
Some nice venom there. Interested to find out who or what is unnatural and what laws she is obeying.
Oh, I’m not a big fan of Elisabeth (that’s the Barbie), but I ❤ the sibling love between River (he's the eyes you see through) and his big brother Jensen (married to Barbie). I've loved it since I first started writing it! 🙂
The "unnatural" comment and the remark about the laws… I will see about getting something about it up for RS #3!!!
Cool snippet! So many questions, i’m looking forward to more of this story! 🙂
I have posted a longer version of this scene on my FB if you wanna go check it out:
I hope you like it, Charley! 😀
Wow, that’s really intriguing 🙂
