Back on Six Sentence Sunday--Austin

Hi, all.

It's been a couple weeks since I've participated. Computer problems and stuff kept me away! My entry this week is from Austin (WIP) and this bit is in Jamie's POV:

The arrival of the ambulance came as a welcome relief. Jamie had only ever seen two dead bodies—her grandparents'. And they had been embalmed and laid out in their caskets when she looked into their familiar faces. Not sprawled out on the red clay earth like an abandoned rag doll. As sheriff, she’d be expected to see the occasional body, but the first one being an old friend made it tougher than she expected.

She looked toward the mountains as the two EMTs loaded Kate’s body into the ambulance and slowly rolled away.

I love comments and try to return each one. Thanks!

Six Sentence Sunday #5

Continuting SSS this week with more from my untitled work, Austin and Jamie. A woman named Kate has just had sex for drugs....

As if she were watching herself in a movie she saw her body move to him and take the proffered baggie. With numb fingers, she opened it and took a small amount of the dope on her pinky. With a gasp of relief, she sniffed the powder. Instead of the fast, healing rush she expected she ached with the need to sneeze.
Powdered sugar.
“What the hell?”

Thank you!
