Six Sentence Sunday: Fools and Runts 15

I had a great time reading the comments everyone left last Sunday. Thanks! This weeks six sentence snippet picks up right where last week's left off.  Thanks for stopping by. More great six sentence snippets can be found here


I’m barely able to get my hands out in front of me before landing on all fours which while humiliating, isn’t nearly as bad as face planting would have been.
            “Grace,” Luke voice is close, much closer than when he’d originally yelled.
I know I should move, that I should sit up and assess the damage, but I’m afraid to look. I didn't know which would be worse: looking and finding that my hands and knees are fine, or seeing them  shredded beyond recognition which is what they feel like.
            “Grace,” Luke’s fingers brush along the length of my spine, “are you okay? Did you break anything?” He slips a hand under my face, tipping my chin until I’m staring directly into a pair of concerned hazel eyes.

  3. It's easy to forgive Luke for saying rash things, when there are moments like this. Very nice!

  6. Aw, I like Luke. I totally sympathize with her reaction, and I'm glad she's got somebody around like him. Better to have some embarrassment because he's right there next to her, than because he laughed at her :)

    1. I'm quite fond of Luke, he's a compilation of my favorite guy friends from when I was in high school. They were all great guys, but had some rough edges. They were also willing to lend a helping hand whenever I needed it. They were also pretty quick to laugh at some of my own bouts of clumsiness!

  7. Luke's not bad at all. Just has a bit of mouth trouble. I hope her hands and knees aren't shredded.

    1. Exactly. He simply needs to learn to edit himself before opening his mouth.

  10. Oh no...I hope she's not hurt as much as she's thinking. I'm looking forward to reading what happens next!

  11. Aw, Luke puts his foot in his mouth sometimes, but his heart is in the right place. He's so concerned for her -- he's a good guy.

  12. Either he's really got his head low, or she has a crick in her neck. I hope he's come down to her level.

  13. I love this, especially Luke showing genuine concern.

  14. Awe...this is so sweet--on a bunch of levels, Jess. I hope she's okay, but even if she's not, Luke is there to help her. Good six!

  15. I hope she's not hurt too much. Nice to see that Luke is naturally concerned about her. You've set up what should be an interesting scene. Good six Jess!

  17. These two are really nice to watch as they get closer. Great work, Jess!

  18. I like Luke! I definitely feel for your heroine, a fall such as you describe is NEVER a good thing, especially with an audience. Excellent excerpt, could really feel the after effects of her fall!

  19. Thank you! I have a huge soft spot for Luke, and agree with you about the clumsy factor. I'm glad you liked it :)

  20. Hi Jess,
    Wow, wonderful Six! A fall like that is never fun - at least she has a nice guy to help her up.
