Six Sentence Sunday #13: Forsaking the Prize

Wow. 2012 is flying by. So hard to believe we’re already in March. Another post for six sentence sunday (along with the other 100+ authors participating in this weekly event). This week I’m offering up something really fresh, as in something written very recently. I’m in the early stages of writing Forsaking the Prize and thought I’d share this small sample of my wip. This is Tobias’ first night at Romsey Abbey and he’s just decided to take a grand tour with Eamon Murphy as his guide.

* * *

“I’m not as well versed as I’d like to be about the abbey,” Murphy mumbled.

Tobias set his hand to his ear. “Speak up man, cannon fire has ruined my hearing. Did you just say your nurse lives at the abbey?”

Murphy gave him a flat, hostile stare. “I really didn’t miss you.”
