Six Sentence Sunday #5

Happy Sunday, everyone!

My fifth Six Sentence Sunday instalment from my up and coming novel continues from last week and which continues from… okay, for a list of previous sixes that might help you catch up, Click Here. This set of six continues directly from last week’s. Same paragraph in the open pages of my as yet untitled novel.

Rani was my best friend (albeit a long lost one), she pulled me and my boyfriend from the wreck. Then she kept going back and grabbing people and helping them out of the inferno until she collapsed in a flaming heap. For two weeks from that day it looked like we were all recovering from an ordinary aircraft accident. Ordinary? Well, we all thought it was ordinary. Until Rani was shot.

    Suspenseful indeed, Richard. I’d like to know about the aircraft and where the accident took place. Great ending with Rani shot and pulling us in to learn more!

    Whoa! Rani collapsed in a flaming heap? Was she burned? Interesting that she’s the target of an assassin (assuming that’s who shot her) now. Definitely seems like a thrill ride for reader. Once again, you end your six on a great hook. Nicely done!

      Thanks Silver (or should I call you Penny? No offence but Silver reminds me of Australia’s recent medal haul! Still a damn good job actually. Now, back to topic…)
      Re “flaming heap”: You have me questioning my choice of words, now. This is good!
      Thanks for the great feedback. ๐Ÿ™‚

        Glad to help. I should explain that in a former “life”, I was an airport rescue firefighter–at least on the forensics side, though I did have live fire training. When I hear about a character collapsing into a flaming heap, I picture two things–either the character is on fire (clothes burning) or the character fell into a pile of burning debris. Either way, the character is going to be in bad shape.

        I answer to both, though most people on-line know me by the pen name–Silver. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Ah! An interesting former life. Coincidentally my day job has a loose connection to that line of work, too. A little too loose for me to pick up the ambiguity in that phrase, however. I think you might find more holes in my story. I better be careful! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Ha ha!

    Thanks again! ๐Ÿ™‚
