The week seems to zip by as if on warp speed, innit? Cannot believe it's time once again for Six Sentence Sunday. Looking forward to some really awesome snippets as I troll the list later on - join me? :)
As for me, today, I'm taking ye all back to the yard that surrounds the double-fronted Victorian house in Camberry, Surrey. Last week, Jamie found Emma outside his surgery window, and their conversation when he came out to meet her was staggering to say the least for Jamie. How will he take that information, when he had his sights set on Margo?
Today's six come from a little further down in this scene. A panicked Margo is looking for her runaway daughter, whom she finds with Jamie outside. And suddenly, Jamie realizes the relationship between the mother and daughter is tempestuous, to say the least... [FYI - Jamie's been steering a recalcitrant Emma to the house out back, and Margo's just grabbed the girl's shoulder]
Her slender, manicured hand with the short fingernails brushed Jamie's, and he almost curled his fist on the frail, girlish frame at the burst of electricity that shot up his fingers and arm - he let go, as if burnt; dead end, he reminded himself.
"Emma, don't do that again, you hear me?"
Terror laced Margo's voice, and her face held a soft, pink flush, her hair in soft disarray where the locks brushed her Burberry trench - quite a departure from the composed woman she had presented just last night.
Emma twisted her body away from Margo's touch, then trudged away, toward the yard that opened in front of the other house entrance, at the back of the property, "Oh, Mum, I was just taking a walk; no big deal, okay?"
"I was worried," Margo said to the girl's departing figure.
"Yeah, whatever." ..."
