SIX SENTENCE SUNDAY~9

Today, my six comes from my unpubbed book, Dating 911.  Jett has some explaining to do...

Propelled forward by her empathy, she stood before him and grasped his chin. With a gentle tug, she twisted his head first right, then left taking in the damage. Laceration just above the left eye. Eyelid several shades of purple-- puffy and swollen. With a fingertip, she gently touched the corner of his lip where the tissue was cut in the corner. He winced. “You want to talk about who rearranged your face?”



His expression turned to stone.  “Nothing more than I deserved.”

Okay, that's the tease!  Don't forget to stop by this link for more snippets from more authors participating in Six Sentence Sunday!
