Six Sentence Sunday 13/05 #14


Another Sunday and the craziness continues. Lord knows how I’m keeping it together, but these posts are just too much fun to miss out on. ^_^

This week, my Six Sentence Sample continues on the theme of my A-Z of flash fiction and hits the letter ‘E.’ With a rigger word of Eagle, I made up a brand new character which I think pretty much encapsulates the growing pains of any adolescent boy seeking approval of those around him. Quite proud of it actually.

~Icarus defies his mother’s orders to join the family for dinner…

“Everybody else gets to go,” he thought darkly, “why am I the only one?!” He turned, meaning to walk back through the tunnel which would take him home, when a loud, shrill call sliced the still of the night.
The boy whirled around, one hand drifting to the knife at his belt, yanking it free. His eyes scanned the mountain side; the little lip of flat rock upon which he stood and the the twin face on his right side.
Nothing there.
He looked down, watching the twinkling golden lights of cooking fires and lit homes from the human village at the foot of the mountain.

About Ileandra Young

I'm a thirty-*mumbles* year old (purple loving, cheese worshipping) author of fantasy, juggling a pair of beautiful twin boys with my burning desire to make up stories and write them all down. When I get the chance, I play games, listen to music, and in days long past I even ran a radio show. Though I occasionally write non-fiction, my heart lives in fantasy and my debut novel, Silk Over Razor Blades is now available through Amazon along with part two of the trilogy, Walking The Razor's Edge.
