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.

He looked down, watching the twinkling golden lights of cooking fires and lit homes from the human village at the foot of the mountain.
