Six Sentence Sunday: The Witches of Arion 6

Welcome back to Six Sentence Sunday.

Thanks to all who have read my sixes and/or given feedback. (Hopefully you haven’t given feedback without reading!) I’m going to skip ahead a little, to Nashua and her family meeting the witch from Fox’s Fair…

First week Second week Third week Fourth week Fifth week

“You should be more careful what you say around a witch – Lady Evelyn Berra Tirec.” Mother stiffened as the witch intoned her name. “Especially in a place like this – where there’s so many ways to hurt yourself.”

Mother got up stiffly from the table and walked around to the roasting pits. Nashua drew in a sharp breath when Mother bent down near to the largest fire.

“I beg you, Moon White – spare her,” Aunt Lima said, and the witch turned to look at her, as Mother stayed crouched down.

Thank you in advance for any comments!

    Terrific tension and a test of wills between Nashua’s mother and the witch. Love Nashua’s sharp intake of breath at that point.


  6. Catherine Johnson says:

    Ooh I can’t wait to find out if Lady Evelyn gets kicked into the fire.


  7. I can’t say the threat isn’t deserved, but I also don’t want Lady Evelyn to get hurt for being a bigot! These snippets get more and more intriguing.


  8. I’m not exactly clear on what’s going on, but I can definitely feel the tension. Nice six!


  9. Well, that answers any questions as to whether she’s a real witch.
