Sweet dreams for SSS

Thanks to everyone who's been visiting each week for Six Sentence Sunday. And especially for commenting! I try to visit as many of the SSS blogs as I can, and am always blown away by the amazing writing. 

Here's another snippet from my contemporary, Going with Gravity, which I re-released on Amazon Kindle and Smashwords:

“Mmm. This is nice.” After two sips of sangria, her eyelids hung heavy, her body weighted with sleep. She felt the glass lifted from her hand, a kiss on top of her head.
He whispered, “Sweet dreams.”
She wanted to tell him it already was sweet, sweeter than she’d ever known, but only a formless sound came from her mouth, and she gave in to sleep.

Such a wondeful show of tenderness here.
I too am blown away by all the great excerpts I see weekly.So many talented authors participate. SSS is a weekly fix I can't do without and I obviously can't wait to check them out, as I'm always looking for the early birds.
LOL
Thanks for sharing, Cate.
