Six Sentence Sunday #57

Hello! *waves* Welcome to another #sixsunday and thanks for stopping by. All comments are appreciated. I'm continuing with my sfr novella Tethered this week. For the first time assassin Tyree has met the human she's been assigned to protect and seen the scars left by a previous attempt on his life. But that's not all holding her attention...


Her pulse raced more ferociously than in the aftermath of euphoria, and she kept her fingers clenched tight. Concentrated her gaze on him, as she would if assessing a target. A broad, triangular face, but with a strong jawline. A cleft in his chin. Eyes dark brown, a shade she’d never seen before. “Couldn’t regenerative surgery fix--”

  2. I like it, Pippa! "as if assessing a target" Hmmm...lol... I think he is a target, but not like her other targets. :-) Great six. And...I agree with Kylie...you are a tease!

  4. There's always a reason someone keeps painful reminders that could be removed. I wonder what his could be.

  5. If he's someone else's target, she needs to get into that someone else's mindset to protect him. Nice going, Pippa.

  6. Ooh, why the ongoing strong reaction? There's more here than, ahem, meets the eye. (Couldn't resist.)

    1. Lol, he's given her a lot to think about. Normally she only gets that close to a human to kill them, so this is a first for her.

  8. She sounds so cool toward him but I wonder if his differences will intrigue her... nice six. :)

  9. I love her assessment of him, and how she starts to try to "fix" things for him by suggesting the surgery. It suggests something about their relationship.
