Six Sentence Sunday: The Witches of Arion 3

It’s Six Sentence Sunday again! (Well, not as I’m posting, because I’m trying to get a spot close to the beginning of the linky list this time around, but by the time you read, it’ll be Sunday morning at the earliest.)

Thanks to all who commented on this piece already. There’ll be lots of more excitement as a young girl who’s suddenly interested in witches visits Fox’s Fair with her family…

First week Second week

“Please, please, can we?”

Mother looked around, and saw where Nashua was pointing. “You are a well-born young lady, and nobody in this family is going to have anything to do with witches if we can help it! For goodness’ sake, my child, why did we let the day-woman read you all those witch stories if you weren’t going to learn from them?”

Mother tried to lead the way off towards some other diversion, but Nashua was not prepared to move away yet. “Being well-born is rotten; nobody else seems scared of the witch.”

Carnival treats or games for everybody who gives feedback this week! πŸ˜€

  1. Maybe she should be scared of the witch! I love her petulance at the end. Great 6.


  2. Love Nashua’s last line. Kids always do speak some wonderful truths. Fun Six.

    A feisty young child. I wonder if the witch should be feared, or if Nashua is right.


  4. Intriguing six–definitely makes me curious about your characters’ world.


  5. Maybe the girl will become a witch to the disappointment of her family!

    Perhaps the witch should fear Nashua!


  7. Maria Connelly says:

    Nice world building in just six sentences. I bet it is rotten to be well-born!


  8. Went back and read all three sixes so far. Very nice snippets of the excitement of the fair. A shudder ran through her, but she still wants her fortune told. I hope she finds a way! πŸ™‚
