This week’s Six Sentence Sunday is from the upcoming novella and second Bucket List story, ‘Caught.’
Amber has lured her BFF Lucy to the bed section of a large department store. It’s late in the evening, and no-one appears to be around.
She indicates the largest, softest bed in the store…
“I just love this bed,” she said, “and I wondered how it would feel to share it with you – when we get our own place.”
“Our own – ?” My question trailed off into a dry croak.
“Are we going to have to move?” I was crushed.
I’d grown to love the big house; wandering around its vast space, naked or clothed, I’d experienced a freedom that had been akin to childhood memories, when cares were few and quickly forgotten.
“Move? Nah,” Amber grinned, then she frowned. “You don’t want to move out, do you?”
“Course not.” My eyes stung with relief. “Never…I love…that house.”
I’d nearly said ‘I love you’ but that suddenly felt awkward.
All right, that was more than six…but I soooo wanted you to get the full flavour of the love between Amber and Lucy.
