Six Sentence Sunday!

Continuing on with Delila:

I swung from chain to chain, avoiding the ground and the various tools of disembowelment that greeted me until I landed in a half crouch on the floor at the base of the stairs. Mr. Bulky stared at me with his mouth open, so I winked at him and went the only way I could.


Lucky for me I had excellent night vision because it became ominously dark. Several doorways loomed between me and a flickering light at the end of the hallway, and I hesitated at them. Faint whispers of aura emanated from them, so I scaled the walls instead and went over them. Whatever lurked in those rooms was not human, not animal, but caught somewhere in between.

I am so glad to see positive feedback on her; occasionally I wonder if she's too strong. LOL

No such thing as too strong. I'm sure she has a soft side :)

Pippa Jay said...

The whole six make you wonder what kind of place she is and that, if the occupants of the rooms aren't human or animal and she's sensing their auras, exactly what is she?

Marie Dees said...

Love the wink at Mr. Bulky. Makes me want to figure out who he is. Nice six!

Casi said...

I love a strong woman. Plus, she's only too strong if you give her weak adversaries. And then it's the adversaries problems, not hers.
