Welcome to another edition of Six Sentence Sunday! Thanks in advance for the encouraging comments. I look forward to visiting many of your SSS posts as well!
And now... on to the Six Sunday fun! I'm still posting from my current YA work-in-progress, "Dusk". Zoe is still reeling from the drama and tragedy that rocked her family earlier in the year, ending with the death of her father. What follows is one of her really low moments, preceded by her mom's attempt at a heart-to-heart. Clearly feeling rotten, Zoe's out for a walk and some fresh air, and who should just happen to wander by? Adrian, of course. It's a short bit of dialogue, but I hope it gives a little glimpse into Adrian's character.
"Fight with my mom," I said, then corrected. "Not really a fight. More of a discussion she wanted that I refused to have."
He nodded, as if he knew I didn't need advice, and in that moment, it was his silent understanding that caused me to open the floodgates.
"My dad had an affair."
