This, folks, is for Six Sentence Sunday. Not to be confused with 7SSS, which is seven suspense sentences. You are more than welcome to read and comment on either or both or neither, depending on your mood.
I was going to give you all another snippet featuring our favorite butler, Pickering. However, I decided to introduce a different character. And boy, is this guy a character.
Jack you met my first week here. To refresh your memory, he’s the one that thought the Earl of Godolphin lived in a gated community. There might be more on him later. Jack that is.
The Castle in this snippet is the home to the fictitious 10th Earl of Godolphin who you will be meeting at some future date. Sorry, don’t know when.
Kebi is a character in my finished full, Target Identified, which I’m self-pubbing this year.
Think I’ve got it all covered, except who the voice belongs to. Sorry but you’ll have to wait until next Sunday to find out-maybe.
From the steady, even increase in the excited barking Jack suspected the dog was headed his direction, at full speed. Or at least toward the front of The Castle.
He would have loved to ignore the dog’s obvious excited call for help but two facts stopped him. First, the sound was similar to a collie he was very familiar with-Kebi. Second, and more importantly, he, in the distance, heard a very familiar female voice call out to the dog.
“Nibs, freeze, or it’s back to your mother with you.”
