Six Sentence Sunday

April 17, 2011

As many of you may know, I had the pleasure of participating in Jessica Subject’s Blogoversary. This week’s six are the opening lines to the ultra-short story I wrote for the occasion.

The space between us is minimal, though highly charged. Just an inch. Less than that. The slightest movement and we would be touching. I can feel the heat of him through my suddenly very restrictive clothes, sense the steady rhythm of his breath. Centimeters. Millimeters. Micrometers between us and yet he is so far away.

If you’d like, you can read the whole thing here: THE SPACE BETWEEN US. Leave a comment and be entered to win a copy of Sculpting a Demon!

Be sure to check out all the other enticing excerpts this week at the OFFICIAL SITE.
