SSS: Zev's busted

Yay, it's Six Sentence Sunday again. Thanks so much for visiting, and for your comments, which I always appreciate.

Here's another six from Dancing with the Devil, my dark paranormal, in which Lily realizes Zev is actually a demon:

The longer she held the pendant, the more her hand shook. From her glazed, wild-eyed look, she either joined the ranks of the zombies or some deep truth had just hit home.

He sighed, then slammed back his martini. Oh yeah, definitely the latter.

Check out the rest of the Six Sentence Sunday authors. Have a great week!

LOL joined the ranks of the zombies -- love it!! And his response of slamming back a martini. Bet he was all casual like, too. Like she should have realized sooner. Ha, lovely scene. Really enjoyed it.

Love the environment you created...especially him slamming back his drink and being so casual. Looking forward to more.

But obviously not a heartless one if his reaction to her knowing is anything to go by.
