Six Sentence Sunday – 8/12/12

Today is #sixsunday where writers share six sentences from their work. 

I am so sorry I never got around to visiting everyone last week. I underestimated how much RWA drained me. I promise to go around today!

Today’s Six Sunday is picking up where we left off last week with STEAM ME UP, RAWLEY, my steampunk romance set in Mobile, AL. Loki returns Rawley’s cravat that had flown away when Rawley landed in his hot air balloon. Loki is a monkey and he’s wearing oyster shell armor, so that you know what Rawley means at the end:

“What have we here?” Dr. Rawley squatted in front of Loki and held out his hand. Obligingly, Loki placed it in his palm like he was bestowing a great and delicate treasure. “What an obliging creature. Thank you, little sir.”

Dr. Rawley gave Loki a pat on the head, and asked, “Are these… oyster shells?”

As always I welcome constructive feedback. Thank you!
