Six Sunday #39 In Her Image

December is the month of fun, joy, and redecorating the house. So, in honor of the silly season I’ve been tweaking my online home, new widgets, colors, and I’ve even mastered an image slider for my future home page. What do you think so far?

But you’re here for another snippet from my newly named serialized story, In Her Image. Enjoy.

***

Doris glanced around but could not see her footman, Marcel, close by. Wretched creature, he’d likely spied someone pretty and been lured away by her come hither smiles. She would speak to him again later, reminding him of his responsibilities and the generous salary she paid him.

She faced the family again, just in time to see the little girl throw her kite to the ground, clench her fists, and turn her face up to show her displeasure. The man was patient; he ignored her howls of inarticulate outrage. From what Doris could see the little girl had so knotted the kite strings she was sure they would need repair before it could fly again.

I loved this excerpt and I can see Doris clenching her hands together wanting to run over and help the little girl with her kite! I defiinitely have to read “the rest of the story”!

Great imagery here with insights into our heroine’s character. Love the snow falling on the site too. Lovely touch.)

This is lovely. Is it bad that I want to see what the footman’s up to? LOL

What can I say? Felt like I was there in her head and with the girl (and the man) with the kite.

It’s so hard not to interfere in that situation. Nice insight into her character.

Great six again. I love how captivated she is by them. And, what *is* her footman doing?

The footman has me intrigued… I wonder where he’s gone, and what he’s up to.
