Six Sentence Sunday #41 – Revenant (Part 21)

Last week, Ryan ended up in a bit of a pickle, lying on the floor with a husk, intent on smashing his head in, sitting on his stomach. Six sentences don’t always allow for combat resolution so you’ve had to wait an entire week to see what will happen. So with the weight of your expectations upon me, I give you another six sentences which I am calling “the next bit”. I hope you like it 🙂

These six sentences pick up immediately following last week’s six, so if you want to catch up or need a recap then just follow this link.

Here we go…

    Ryan extended the monofilament blade and moved his arm about in an arc, slashing at the creature’s abdomen. Entrails spilled onto the floor as he pushed the stricken monster aside, and his legs became tangled in the grizzly remains. He spied a second husk come in from behind, it’s fists poised to strike.
    He dodged sideways as it pummelled the floor where he’d laid only a heartbeat earlier then slashed with his blade, sending its forearms spinning away. The creature’s suddenly shortened limbs caused it to over balance, and Ryan had time to bring the rifle around. A squeeze of the trigger at each, and both vile creatures were sent to hell in a cascade of burning plasma.

  1. I read your sixes, and I imagine the scenes as if they are played out in a video game. It comes from years of our (now adult) son asking me to watch as he blew up aliens. He knew the blood, guts, and gore would creep me out. Your writing is effectively creeping me out as well, but I can’t stop reading your sixes. Great detail and quite fascinating. I do hope you realize this is all a compliment. 🙂

  2. Damn that’s good! Can’t remember the last time I saw an action scene that acknowledged that sudden amputation of parts of limbs throws the balance out of whack. Yay 🙂
