Hi, and welcome back to Six Sentence Sunday. This week, I’m going to stop cherry-picking sixes from ‘Won’t somebody think of the children’, and start with a short story that I wrote for a contest around Christmas – Project Fast Track. Here’s the opening:
“Hello, and welcome to TimeBubble, Mister York – I’m Darlene Pritchard, Customer Service.” She gestured to the padded armchairs in front of her desk.
“It’s very nice to meet you, Darlene, and you can call me Michael. This is Jasmine,” Michael said. He and the teenaged girl sat down. “Can you show us the bubble machine first?”
“Sure.” Darlene considered her unusually well-informed customers as she prepared the bubble generator controls, and rattled off a few facts about the history of the company.
