Six Sentence Sunday
Once more, it's Sunday! Whew - where does the time go, eh? I sit down on most weekends (when I do find a minute to sit down, that is) and wonder where the past week has gone. Half the time, I have absolutely no idea! [not to mention that this past week has been one amazing ride - check the blog to see what I'm talking about]
So, Sunday... SSS... and if I'm not mistaken, it's Mother's Day today in the US. We celebrate it on the last Sunday of May here in Mauritius, but anywho, Happy Mother's Day to all the mums out there.
Speaking of mums, and parenthood, and my current WIP... From the previous SSS posts (here, and here), a lot of you were intrigued as to what was the real 'deal' between the hero and heroine in this story. I promised to unveil the 'revelation' this week, and in a way, it's perfect that today is Mother's Day. A mother is at the heart of this plot twist. Check it out.
This conversation takes place a few paragraphs down from last week's six sentences. Kelsey has come to Stellan's office to ask for his help, and is about to disclose why she needs him. The two were teenage lovers, and haven't seen each other for close to 2 decades. She's placed the picture of a premature baby in an incubator on the desk between them.
'...“The baby’s yours?”
“She’s,” Kelsey paused, looked down, anywhere away from his gaze, “she’s ours.”
He glanced at the time stamp on the picture - two days ago. “Kelsey, we haven’t seen each other in more than eighteen years. How can that child be mine?”
“She’s our granddaughter.”...'
As always, eager to hear what you think!
Have a great Sunday!
From Mauritius with love,
