Six Sentence Sunday 33

This week, another taste of my Christmas WIP Breath of Heaven. My flyboys Sebastian and Ryder have had a shock as tragedy engulfs Ryder’s brother, hockey star Ryan Beckett.

A rush of emotion swept over Ryder and his legs gave out, dropping him to the ground. Caught off balance, Sebastian was pulled with him and the two of them tumbled into the hole Ryder had dug which was fast becoming a mud pit in the downpour. Ryder twisted around, pressing his body against Sebastian’s, ignoring the mud that caked them both.

“Ryan’s loss made me realize what you went through when my plane went down,” he said hoarsely, tears forming in his eyes and trickling out to mingle with the rain on his face.

He dug his fingers into Sebastian’s hard shoulders, holding him tightly with a frantic sense of their mortality fueling his strength and urgency.

I’m over at Castles and Guns today talking about cover art and plot bunnnies and a serious lack of time! Come on over and see the newest Tales cover and let me know what you think of it. And don’t forget to stop by the Six Sentence Sunday site and check out the other writer offerings!

Happy Sunday!

  21. Such an emotional excerpt, but I must say, that picture was mighty distracting. LOL

    Oh, and do you watch Castle? Just wondering with Ryder’s brother’s name. 😉

    • Lex says:

      I don’t watch TV really. Not dramas or sitcoms anyway. I watch CNN, TVG, DIY, HGTV, Food Network, Cooking, Speed Channel…and that photo isn’t nearly as distracting as the one I wanted to use. But sexually explicit photos are probably not a good idea. LOL
