Ginger's Six Sentence Sunday

Time for another six from my current WIP, Hattie's Hero, a western historical time-travel.  The picture is from my western blog logo at Cowboy Kisses.  Isn't he dreamy?

When you've finished leaving a comment (hint, hint), please had back to Six Sentence Sunday for more links.

Set up reminder: Hattie has grown up in an orphanage, answered an ad she found at the mercantile, and has just finished interviewing with the mister of the household and is now meeting the wife.



Mr. Franklin yanked his watch from his pocket again and checked the time. “I’ll leave you two to discuss the matter of caring for the children. I have business to tend involving the sale of the house and furniture.” Stepping closer to his wife, he leaned toward her ear. “She comes from the orphanage with no recommendations. Don’t confuse particulars with pity.”  

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back next week.  I love sharing, and I'm definitely hooked on a few of the stories offered by others.

I'm disliking Mr. Franklin based on this. Hoping his wife is the nice one in the marriage.

If this is from Hattie's POV, he;s not whispering, either.

Oh, dear, doesn't sound like an auspicious beginning to her interview. Very nice six!

That doesn't bode well for Hattie, methinks. Interesting six.
