SSS: Meet Luke, a not-so-angelic angel

Thanks so much for visiting for Six Sentence Sunday! And thanks especially for your comments.

Here's another snippet from Ground Rules, my Christmas fantasy. Luke, a Watcher Angel, isn't enthusiastic about the holiday. He has his reasons. So he tends to avoid the scheduled seasonal get-togethers. 

Oh please. Luke would give anything not to have to attend yet another boring event. Stand around and sing, chat up the bosses, flirt with the seraphim—to no avail. He’d give anything to have a little one-on-one time with a girl. A real, in-the-flesh, warm-blooded girl.

Thoughts like that could get him demoted.

Demoted? Could get him something else as well!

Gem Sivad said...

Hmmm...demoted. Lots of temptation and he seems ready to fall. :)

Jenna said...

Sounds like he'd take that demotion and then some! Love this six!

Erika said...

Demoted for getting a real girl? I wanna know more!

Great six

Liz said...

Yeah I don't want to see what happens to a demoted angle - or do I? Great 6.

And is that a young Sean Bean in that picture?

Being angelic isn't all it's cracked up to be, huh?

Lila Shaw said...

Oh, methinks someone's gonna fall very soon! (Yay!)

Zee Monodee said...

Lol, poor sweetie! Any gal would trip over herself to be with him, esp since he looks like Sean Bean! :)

Heaven, Earth, Hell -- Seems like the rules and politics are all the same!

Jonna Rae said...

Sounds like a plan. A fun demotion, no more kissing up at parties. I'm not seeing too much of a downside here.

Vivien Dean said...

If the thoughts have consequences, who knows what would happen if they were actions. Well done!

Jessica Subject said...

So very intriguing! I want more! :)

These poor angels! Seems like demons have all the fun. :)

Stephanie Adkins said...

Maybe a demotion wouldn't be so bad. *wink* Great six, Cate! Happy Sunday!

Paula Martin said...
