Kary's Six Sentence Sunday

Happy Six Sentence Sunday from Kary.

This is an excerpt from my current work in progress, The Implanting, an epic fantasy romance. Abby has just returned home from a month long journey. Shortly after her arrival, she overhears a conversation in which Petra, her best friend and confidant, declares he’s in love with her. The revelation surprises her, but not as much as the feelings it stirs in her own heart.

Taking her in his arms, his face descended to hers. He hesitated, and when she didn’t pull away, made full contact with her lips. His mouth moved insistently, like a gentle wind against the new growth of barley. The mint and lemongrass scent of his skin infused her senses, and his arms around her waist conveyed security but not confinement.
Her mind scattered like apple blossoms in the breeze. Was this why she’d come?

Hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by.

Great passage! I'm glad these two characters get a bit of face time. And it makes me want to catch up to this point. Good job, Kary.

Kary said...

Thanks, Jenna. Yes - Petra gets a little face time in this one. He's my rock, literally. Petra is Greek for "rock".

Great six, Kary! Glad their kiss was not 'under the influence this time'! She appears to be enjoying it a bit too much! Tut, tut, what will Avant say?

Kary said...

Yes - Petra makes certain before hand Abby knows who he is. Then he kisses her. Avant is none too please when he finds out, but it is kind of his fault.

Lisa Kumar said...

Avant's fault--lol, why doesn't that surprise me?

Maybe not why she came, but surely why she should stay? :-P
