Six Sentence Sunday

It’s time again for Six Sentence Sunday, the weekly blog event where participants post six sentences of something they’ve written, whether published, a work in progress, or something they may never finish.

This week’s six sentences come from Ashton, a short story that will shortly be on Smashwords as the fourth in the Vampire Morsel’s Collection

The screen door banged open and closed, and feet shuffled through the house.Β  Ashton peered around the others curiously as someone whimpered; a soft, high sound, and then two of the guys appeared through the doorway, lugging a fourteen year old girl between them. Her hair was strawberry red and hung around her face like it had just fallen out of a ponytail. Her clothes were rumpled and dirt stained, and she had only one shoe. Tears and dirt streaked her face, and traces of blood were smeared under her nose. It would have been bad enough if Ashton hadn’t known who she was, but knowing made it worse.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the other participants!
