1/27/13 Six Sentence Sunday

Hello everyone! Welcome back! I'm sorry I haven't posted anything in about two weeks.

Hope everyone is doing well. I worked today so I'm posting about three quarters of a day late. I start classes this week and I think I've decided what to do as far as majors go. I'm keeping my English writing major and switching my Psychology minor to a double major. It's just four or five extra classes instead of taking on a completely new major and adding eight or nine additional classes. So, with that I figure I could just end up getting a license to be a licensed clinical therapist and I can write on the side. I'm happy with that. =)

So, I think for this week I'm just going to post something new and then next week continue on with the story. I think I'm going to post from the short story I wrote for my best friend. I liked it, it was fun to write. Hopefully, you all enjoy it.

This excerpt is taken out of context and may confuse people only because they don't have a full understanding of the situation. Ms. Neil (Danielle) is engaged to her long time boyfriend Ben. She happens to meet a man who she can't seem to resist and they end up making out in her classroom while the kids are in recess. Afterwards she is feeling an overwhelming amount of guilt.

The bell rang and she heard shouts. She shoved him away from her; he felt like a rock. She fixed her hair and the kids came running in. She smiled at them and told them to collect their belongings so they could greet their parents. Jacob came running in and  up to his dad with a grin that spread from ear to ear.  Danielle really tried to ignore the perfect specimen that she was just practically fornicating with, in a classroom where she taught, but she could not ignore him. She became illogical with him and she was beginning to feel the guilt. Poor, Ben. How could I do that to him? What am I going to do? Nothing. It won’t happen again. It can’t happen again. I refuse to let it happen again. Internally berating herself did not seem to help. She was placing her books inside her bags and glanced up at him. I’m in a whole world of trouble now. She knew from the second she saw him that she was in trouble. She told the class to stand in a straight line and they all walked out together. Tristan following closely behind holding little Jacob in his arms. He was parked right out front, he put Jacob in the back seat and made sure he was safely fastened in. Danielle was saying goodbye to the last of her students when she saw Tristan standing there. She just stood there fumbling with her keys, unknowing of what to say to him.
“Um, that can’t happen again. It was very inappropriate behavior on my part. I apologize to you.” She stood firmly and spoke sternly; she wanted to be taken seriously. This made Tristan laugh.
“Right. No need to apologize, I know you enjoyed yourself just as much I did and I had something to show for it. Good thing it went away at the sound of the screeching children. Have a good day, Ms. Neil. I’ll see you tomorrow.” Danielle stood there gaping and immediately saw the obnoxiousness Ms. Klein had mentioned. Thank heavens Jacob was in the car and the front of the school cleared quickly. That was inappropriate and shocking. But, she had to admit, the promise of seeing him tomorrow excited her. He stepped into his vehicle, he said something to Jacob who looked out of the window and smiled and waved as did Tristan, and with that he drove away.

Thanks for reading! Hope you guys enjoyed the snippet! It's a lot longer than six sentences but I loved this part too much to cut it. If you want to read more of this story next week, comment below otherwise I'll just continue with the horror story; I'll always comment back. Have a happy and safe Sunday, everyone!

1/13/13 Six Sentence Sunday

Welcome back! I hope everyone is having a wonderful week!

Okay, so this is extremely late and I'm sorry about the late post. I worked early today and stayed much later than scheduled. Not complaining, I love to work. I have nothing new to report on my end; with going's on in my life. I try to keep personal personal, things like that. I did, however, just finish writing a short story for a close friend. It's really intriguing which started me thinking; I may write a few other short stories and try to put together a book of short stories. I think that will be fun to do. And there's a short scene I'd like to add to the one I just completed. It's different than the style I like to write in; which is sort of, dark, or tragic love, horror, thriller. Or at least I think, this one is very loving and passion filled. I like it.

But, this week is a again a continuation of the horror story. If you haven't been following I'll post the link to catch up. You may need to copy and paste. I'll also post a link to the site for the other six sentence posts, if you're interested in reading any others. For those who have been following, let's find out what Marvin's wife has to say about him loading the gun.

“Shadows? Babe, if she is seeing a shadow do you think shooting it will get you anywhere? It could be nothing; you know they said on TV the other day, that most kids before the age of seven see ghosts. Let’s not make this into something it’s not.” She tried to lie back down; despite the fact that she knew sleep was not going to come.  Marvin sighed deeply and grunted. “Ash, you didn’t see her face. She said he was a shadow, like a ginger bread man. She heard rattling in the kitchen and went looking for him. What if it’s dangerous? We need help. This is all I have to protect you girls. She could have gotten hurt roaming around in the middle of the night looking for a- a shadow.  I love you girls too much to let a shadow frighten my daughter.” Defeat took over his voice and he was exasperated. How could he help her, if she needs it? If it turns out to be an unfriendly ghost, how do you stop something you cannot see? For all he knows, she was sleep-walking. But, Marvin being a well prepared man, he had to plan for the worst. He had to ease his mind to know that no matter what happens; he will try to protect his family.

 Also, I don't count the dialogue as a sentence. That's why my  posts are a little longer. Hope you enjoyed the excerpt! Feel free to write comments, make suggestions or just say hey; I always reply back! Have a wonderful Sunday and great week!

Here are the first eight posts to this book in chronological order if you want to catch up:

1/6/13 Six Sentence Sunday

Welcome back to Six Sentence Sunday! Happy New Year, I hope everyone is well!

       This new years was fun for us, my sisters boyfriend, my brother's girlfriend, my friend and I drank wine and then did some shots together. We had a blast cracking jokes while everyone else just looked at us. We called ourselves the fun group, which we were. It wasn't sloppy drinking like most people imagine, first off everyone slept over, no one over drank, and we were all in my house, a safe environment. It was a good time. How was yours?

        Lately, I've been seriously debating transferring schools; but I do not know which one I would go to. They all seem like such fine institutions,  I just know I am not happy with mine and I literally hate it and despise it. To me they get paid to not answer us or be helpful in any sort of way. Then again, that is my fault for going to a community college close to my house. I'll find a good one, hopefully sooner rather than later.

       Also, with the new year comes resolutions. Did anyone make any? I didn't, I stopped. However, I do make time for self reflection and look for ways to better myself as a person. I do this often, everyone knows how they want to be perceived in this world and how they want to be in general, the only to get there, in my opinion, is through self reflection and change. Well, you have to be willing to accept the change or you won't get too far.

     Now onto my six sentence, I hope everyone is eager to learn what's in the safety deposit box? The story in this first chapter is about to rapidly speed up. I hope everyone is on the edges of their seats! I'm excited, who's excited? Here we go:

 She sat up in the bed clearly unhappy. After rubbing her eyes, she began to take in the situation. She looked at the box and began to panic. He was turning the key and opened it, “What are you doing, Marvin?” Panic shrieked in her voice.
“Amelia is seeing shadows. But, in-case it’s more than a shadow I want to be prepared.” He pulled out the black gun and held it in his hand. Then he pulled out the box of bullets and began to load the weapon. His wife’s eyes grew in fear. He swore to her he’d never need it and now he’s loading it in front of her.
        Wish, I could give you more. It gets better. What do you guys think so far? Any idea of what little Amelia may be seeing? Feel free to leave comments, suggestions, anything you'd like. Have a Happy Sunday.
