Six Sentence Sunday 05/08 #26

Hi again. Welcome to another Six Sentence Sunday in which I regale you with a selection of sentences (all related!) from my A-Z of Flash Fiction. This week its ‘Q’ and the trigger word is ‘quasar.’

This is a fun, short piece about when I used to work at the local Quasar… by some known as Laser Quest. 🙂

~A shot in the back could end it all….

One life lost.

I spun around, mouth already open to curse the child who caught me in the back, but no more remained than a single trainer vanishing around the corner.

I grunted, preparing to go on my way again when yet another zinger took me in the back. Quicker this time, I spun around, meaning to return fire, when I remembered that my gun was useless for three seconds after taking a hit.

The kid, short, sandy haired, no more than eight years old, smirked at me and raised his gun again. He took aim.

And it really was like that. I couldn’t shoot for toffee. o.O

Okay, we’re done for another week. Use the banner below to guide you towards other authors taking part this week and I’ll catch you next time.

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.
