Six Sentence Sunday

It’s time again for Six Sentence Sunday, the cool group where, every Sunday, participants post six random sentences. It can be from a WIP, from a published manuscript, or something you never plan to publish.

This week’s six sentences are from my Work in Progress, Ties of Blood.

(working cover)

Worried about her mother’s safety, Katelina has just announced to Jorick (her vampire boyfriend) that she wants to visit her – and she expect Jorick to go with her! Of course, he isn’t happy about it….

“Checking to see that she’s all right and introducing us are hardly the same thing!”

Katelina’s hands went to her hips. “What? Would you rather just sit at her window like a vulture and peer in on her?”

He nodded encouragingly, a brief light of hope in his eyes. “Actually, yes, that’s what springs to mind.” She continued to glare at him stubbornly and he snapped, “Katelina, I do not meet parents!”

Hope you enjoyed these six sentences. Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to check out the other participating authors!

  1. Delightful and funny.

  2. Haha! The torture of meeting the mother of the person you’re going out with! Brings back memories of meeting the in-laws.

  3. OH!! Real moment! I loved it!

  4. Meeting the mother…the poor guy. Great six!

  5. “we do not meet parents” that’s priceless!

  6. Whether they’re vamps or human males, meeting the parents seems always akin to root canal for them!

  7. Wow, he really doesn’t want to go. Don’t blame him though, but I think in the end she’ll get her way. 😉

  8. I absolutely love that last line!

    Nicely written, thanks for sharing!

  10. Lol! Excellent.

  11. That’s so amusing! I don’t meet parents. Classic!

  12. Thanks for sharing.

    I like your “nothing is black and white” theme here, as well!

  13. Um, yeah you do dude. Get ready for it. LOL

  14. LOL,

    There is just something so funny about the thought of taking your vampire boyfriend to met the parents. It really makes me giggle. The sitting outside like a vulture comment and the way he nods so hopefully made me giggle to.

    Great job.

  15. Loved the final line. It made me giggle. I can’t wait to read the full!

  16. I’m with Jorick on this one. Yeah, that’s almost like meeting the inlaws. And when the inlaws could easily be a meal…

  17. I’m liking these characters more and more! 😀
