Six Sentence Sunday 5


Welcome first time and repeat readers!  My fifth #sixsunday contribution is below, with the stories previous first, second, third and fourth stored safely. 

“Crystal,” I announced to the car.
“You’re talking to yourself again, kid.”
I pet the dog at my feet, “I want to call her Crystal.  Ok girl, you are Crystal.”  Cindy did not ask why since she heard my story already.  Crystal was my sister.

I love the comments and look forward to your thoughts.

  5. Yup, Crystal 'was' her sister. Sad stuff unless you think how this is the first dog our MC Erica has seen in 3 months. Maybe the dog Crystal is a sign of hope.

    Maybe ;)

  9. I'm a sucker for dogs in a book, so you've hooked me. Let's hope Crystal is the start of better things.

  11. Yup, it is sad to think about, but to do the story any justice, I couldn't be all 'sunshine, rainbows & fluffy bunnies' in a zombie apocalypse.

  12. I like the set-up, but (as a dyslexic person) I know I would get eternally confused by two characters with names starting with the same letter and about the same length :)

  16. That's good about Cindy...she's definitely not my favorite. In fact she ranks below Crystal in my book.

    great six, xoxox sis
