Six Sentence Sunday 9/4/2011

By , @Writing2Day
From my work in progress: Drake sets his plan in motion to blackmail April’s husband, Pierce.

Heavy footsteps broke through his concentration and he lifted his head, rubbing the back of his neck which was already stiff with the tension of leaning over the nets. Pierce strained his eyes trying to make out the figure advancing towards him in the fog.  He hoped it was one of his crew members coming to aid in the clean up, but the slow sound of the footsteps carefully making their way down the dock told him it was someone unfamiliar with the wharf.  He stood up to his full height when the man’s swinging black cape met his eyes and waited cautiously to identify the face above the collar.  Every instinct in his body told him to be on guard as his muscles constricted in anticipation.  An unfamiliar face came into view and Pierce quickly summed up his adversary.

  1. I agree, very eerie. Nice six. What will happen?

  2. Cara Bristol says:

    I like how you lead into the moment of truth. Nice pacing.

  3. I like how you start out with the sore/tense neck muscles, then events conspire so all his muscles become tense 🙂
