My 10th week of six sentence Sunday - Enter the Sister

From Bride of the Living Dead, Daria and Oscar just got engaged, on the doorstep of her old apartment they unexpectedly encounter Daria's sister, Sky.

I put my arms around Sky and hugged her again--twice in a row like that was unusual for us, but she felt so fragile and something seemed to hover around her--heartbreak, death?
            Stepping out of my embrace, she turned to look Oscar over appraisingly and said, "Hi. You’re new."
            "This is, um, uh, my fiancĂ©, Oscar Winslow."
            "What happened to Kent, the love of your life? Wait, I remember, he dumped you, but for the longest time, the obsession lingered--though not as bad as your first boyfriend, Denny--"
"Sky, stop right now!"

  9. Thanks Kathleen, Kerianne and Jessica, as you guessed, the entrance of Sky means trouble in paradise.

    Good point, Ann!

    Laura and sassyspeaks, Daria's worried about that very thing.

    Good point, Cate, Sky is a mixture of brass and vulnerablity, with a few more cats in the bag.

    Thanks, Chrystalla!

  19. Thanks, Joyce! It's taken way longer to get the books out there than I could have imagined possible. But the only way is to put one word in front of another, and keep going and trying to improve!

    Susanna, thanks, oddly the sisters love each other but drive each other crazy.

    Thanks, Ada, Sky is pretty scary just as a sister...as a wedding planner--horror show terrifying!
