Six Sentence Sunday: The Gnomes are Missing, 3

It’s Six Sentence Sunday – which will be ending after January 2013, so you better get your sixes while they’re hot! 😉

I’m continuing with sentences from the opening of my Missing Gnomes story, with a slightly tweaked title.

First Six Second Six

For a moment Kinwer had actually thought he was seeing a baby, but no baby could have moved with such purpose or examined the stones with such authority. “Are you a…” he said, and ran out of words, because he didn’t have any clue what he was looking at. He’d never heard about gnomes before.

Gibbs looked up at him, skittered away around a boulder, then poked his head back out at Kinwer. “Are you a – a big man?” he asked, in a high, clear voice.

“Umm – I’m not a full grown man,” Kinwer said.

Thank you for any comments!

    I like how shocked they both seem to be:)

    Lovely balance of mutual distrust. 🙂


  4. I gather the gnomes usually hide from the “big people,” but I’m surprised Gibbs has apparently never seen one.


  5. Kate Warren says:

    I like this. It reminds me of that M&Ms commercial where they run into Santa and everyone faints.


  6. Interesting sense of wonder from both of them.

    I like that they’re both uncertain of each other. Good six, Chris. 🙂
