Six Sentence Sunday ~ 3/25

This week's six follow the meal from the six sentences last week in Always and Forever and the conversation shown in Wednesdays writing tip.  Leticia and Zach have revealed they want Lilly to date Zach as a decoy date to a boat party, since Zach's mother is trying to force him back into the dating scene, and planned the party to introduce him to women. Zach told Lilly she is a perfect decoy.  Since she doesn't have any money or family, she can be totally devoted to him as far as his mother needs to know.  He also told her she was beautiful, and would quickly win his family over.




Lilly pulled her hand out of Zach's and brushed aside the compliment. She tried hard not to feel offended by his unconscious arrogance. Before she lost everything, she probably looked down at poor people the same way he looked at her, without ever knowing she did it. What would Zach think if he discovered she used to have money and connections and family of her own?

The silence stretched out between them. Lilly tried to think of a way to refuse him without putting her job in jeopardy--she couldn’t afford to offend Zach or Leticia, which she feared outright refusal would do.

I hope you enjoyed this week's six.  To check out other authors' sentences or post your own, visit 6 Sentence Sunday here.

  1. Great 6! You've captured her angst here and thus increased the tension... Also a nice, unobtrusive way to slip in backstory

    BTW, your post has no title...
