Once again, this six is taken from my 14,500 word short story, “Forged in Blood,” which is available on kindle from amazon. In this scene Atilen, who we met last week, is following Tara, a character who you may recognize from my previous Six Sentences. Of course Atilen doesn’t know her name yet.
My previous forays into the Six Sentence world have all included some dialogue so I thought I’d try one without any this time. I hope you like it. 🙂
If you’re interested in reading the entire piece just click on the cover image and it will take you to the amazon site.
The emergence of his target snapped him back to the here and now. The woman he was following stepped out of Jodah’s apartment and started walking along the quiet street. She was dressed in a deep red shirt beneath a fitted leather corset and tight-fitting leather breeches that hugged her dancer’s figure nicely. A dark headband kept her long red hair out of her eyes, and soft leather gloves covered her hands. Atilen had been following her for some time and knew that this woman had some martial training. The well-maintained sword strapped to her side was a warning to any would-be attacker that she was not a person to be trifled with.
