Six Sentence Sunday

it’s time again for Six sentence Sunday, that fun blogging experience where participants post six sentences from something they are working on, something they have published or just, well, something!

Today’s six come for the short story Claudius that I have not finished. Partially because I’ve done more than 20 book covers in three weeks, and partly because I’ve lost my thread of thought on it. I need to get back to it, though.

He could see her; dark and coquettish. She batted her eyes like a virgin, but took him in the stables like a common whore. He didn’t love her, and she knew it, though she didn’t care. He was just a game for her, but that was all right with him because her offerings were sweet enough. Then, they got sweeter. She showed him her immortality and let him taste it.

Someday I will finish it.

In the meantime, be sure to check out the other participants!
