SIX SENTENCE SUNDAY~13


Welcome back to Six Sentence Sunday! As always, your comments are always appreciated.  Don't forget to stop by this link to check out what the rest of the SSS authors are up to this week at http://www.sixsundayblogspot.com/ .

Again from the same old wip I pulled off my flash drive, this week's Six is a continuation from last week where my heroine has just lost her patient who coded.  She is doing the post mortem care to ready his body for the morgue. 

It was a good thing Seamus couldn’t see what a mess he looked, even after she'd bathed his body. He'd surely scold her about ruining his reputation with the ladies. She pushed his dentures into his mouth for the third time, but they popped out farther than before. “That looks awful.”



“At least your not thinking about using duct tape,” a familiar voice whispered in her left ear.

She whirled, swinging her arm through a flash of light and staggered into the night stand, knocking the pink basin filled with bath water to the floor. Her gaze shot around the room--empty.
That's it for me! Enjoy your Easter Sunday!

Okay, that's just freaky. It was funny until she turned and didn't see anyone there. Fabulous six!

Okay, that really got me. Incredibly imagery. Dealing with the dead body, to a voice at her ear...wow~
