Six Sentence Sunday is open to all writers. Just pick a six sentence passage from anything you’ve written—published, unpublished, whatever—and post it on your blog on Sunday.
Registration for the upcoming Sunday list opens the previous Tuesday evening at 5pm CST. More information is here.
It dawns on Clyota that the lockbox the Lieutenant was bring to her when he was killed might be an actual clue, so she talks Christina into stopping off at Clyota’s house—which is been sealed by a Police Beacon—so she can retrieve it.
Christina parked about thirty meters shy of my house. “Okay, guys, do your thing—I’ll just sit tight with the motor running, my eyes closed, and my fingers in my ears.”
“You aren’t an officer of the court,” I said, steeling myself to open my door and wondering if the lockbox was a good enough reason to leave the warm car. “You don’t have to report anything.”
“No, but I hyperventilate in stressful situations. Hurry up.”

Christina’s quite the character 🙂 great job!
Christina says all the stuff no one else will—but she somehow gets away with it . . . Wish I knew how todo that! 🙂
That sixth sentence was great. I feel that Christina is a little bit on the snarky side. Snarky in a good way, of course. 🙂
Yeah Christina is a little bit snarky the way Mt. Everest is a little bit over sea level . . .
Christina is me in most situations and while I love to read that, I’m not sure how that plays out in real life. Well, my friends stick around, so…anyway, love how these three became an awkward unit and here is an example of why. It’s just a fun scene!
Everyone needs a Christina (and a Lisa, too)! 🙂
Well, I certainly agree on both of those. XD
Do closing your eyes and putting your fingers in your ears prevent hyperventilation? I think I like Christina. Nice six!
It usually keeps me from seeing things that might make me hyperventilate . . . 🙂
On this one is intriguing! I need to go back and catch up on all the previous ones just as soon as I get through edits. I have the feeling this is a fun story.
I hope it is! 🙂
Good luck with the edits (not that you need it)!
Great dialogue, well done! Very interesting characters.
I like the fingers in the ears. I’ll have to give that one a try.
I find that singing, “La, la, la, la, la!” while doing so helps drown things out and puts my point across. 🙂
Christina sounds um ah, brave! LOL. I bet Christina is going to grow in this story. Nice six!
Hey, check out last Thursday’s post (about halfway down) if you haven’t already—tag, you’re it!
