Happy Holidays and Merry Six Sentence Sunday to you all. After this week, it looks to me like we have five Six-Sundays before they end – January 27, 2013 will be the last SSS.
We’re still in a flashback, with my main character, Kinwer, meeting his first Gnome friend:
“So if you’re eleven… how long until you’re full grown? They say that men don’t live as long as we do.”
“I might be as tall as I’m going to get by the time I’m seventeen.” Kinwer counted on his fingers. “I’ll be a man by law once I’m fourteen.”
“Gosh,” Gibbs repeated.
Thank you very much for reading! I’ll try to send out Xmas presents or cards to everybody who comments!
LOL Too cute! A man by the time he’s fourteen. Hehe.
If this is a peasant community, he’ll probably be doing a man’s work by the time he’s fourteen.
