Only one more round of Six Sunday after this week. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Sundays won’t be the same. But thanks for spending part of your Sunday to check out my six. There are so many authors whose works I’ve enjoyed reading, even if it’s only six sentences. This week I’m sharing a six that features one more devastating detail about Cammy’s dad. I’m glad to see that many of you are feeling for Cammy as this how I’d like my readers to feel. In this six, Cammy has just told Ryan that after her mom died her dad developed a drinking problem and would often get drunk and hit her. Ryan is the first to speak:
“Didn’t you tell anyone?”
“Wanted to, but he threatened me, saying he was the only one who could take care of me – such a load of shit!” She wiped a tear from her puffy face.
“Got to the point where I was afraid to go home after school. Course one night when I came home from my boyfriend’s house, he was wasted. Got pissed at me for bein’ late, so he threw me against the wall and punched my arm.”
Your comments are greatly appreciated, so thanks in advance. Visit the Six Sunday link, for the complete list of many authors, like myself.
