Six Sentence Sunday - more Surfacing



I'm having a lot of fun with Six Sentence Sunday. Thanks to all who checked out my entry last week.

Here's a little more from my fun contemporary fantasy, Surfacing:

Clouds roiled over the ocean as AJ waited. Unable to sit still, he paced along the islet. His nerves jangled in his skin. He should have gone home for his guitar, but he couldn’t face Grandpa. He wasn’t sure he would be able to face Cassiopeia, but he had to. To save her life, he had to lie to her.

The visual in line one puts me right in the scene. The tension grows as our hero rationalizes the need to lie. I know I didnt put the book down in this chapter.

Great sense of internal conflict here. Can't wait to see why to save her, he has to lie to her.

Dee Carney said...

Ooh! What a conflict!

Laurie A. Green said...

Wonderful scene.

The "forced to lie" (I assume to protect the person being lied to--Cass) sounds like a great source of conflict.

Love the visual of the clouds rolling in.
