Six Sentence Sunday – 24/7/11

Bite With HeightThanks to everyone that swings by and comments each week – it’s very much appreciated (though remember the comment link is at the top of the post, I noticed some people commenting on the previous blog post by mistake). So, without further ado, I’ll give you the next six sentences, following on directly from last week. Just in case you weren’t here last week, this is from my new collection, The Best of Lucy Felthouse, which contains five erotic stories previously published in Xcite Books anthologies.

Towering over most of the people milling around, he stood against the wall, out of the way of the crowds. From where I stood I could see he had dark hair and eyes, and that was about it. I scraped a hand briefly through my hair and headed over to him.

He caught my eye as I approached.

“Corporal Stokes?”

“Yes ma’am.”

    Your SixSunday excerpts are always full of anticipation. 🙂 I was probably one of those who commented in the wrong place last time, LOL.

    I like that you were brief with the description since they are far away from each other when she spots him. It’s one of my pet peeves when someone describes a character, right down to their dimples, after saying they were across the room 🙂

    Nicely done, just a hint on information so the reader wants more!

    Sounds like the corporal stands out in a crowd, and not just because he’s tall. Gotta hear more!

    Nice description of him. I get the vibe of the crowded room! The hand through the hair body language was a telling gesture! 🙂
