Six Sentence Sunday #16

Welcome to this week’s Six Sentence Sunday post! (Visit the other wonderful writers here.) I continue to post from Blowing Embers, my second novel in The Embers Series, a paranormal romance/epic fantasy, released July 1st.

Today’s snip follows right where we left off last time - and keep in mind that Alex, her nephew, is six years old:


The comfy couch beckoned, and she let him lead her back to it. “Alex asked me if he could become a soldier,” she told him as she pulled her legs up.
His face showed no surprise as he lifted a fuzzy blanket from the couch’s arm and wrapped it around her.
“Did you know?” she asked, suddenly suspicious.
“He did not ask me,” he replied blandly.
“But you knew . . . what . . . that he would?”

  8. Difficult situation. He's kind of caught in the middle, isn't he? Hope he handles it the right way.

  9. I haven't read the earlier post, but this one makes me wonder what a wee six-year-old has seen that makes him want to become a soldier. I hope it was something pleasant and inspiring, like a friend or family member in uniform, not something dire, like war. Nice soft moment here.
