Six Sunday – 12/30/12

The last Six Sunday of 2012. Thanks for spending part of your Sunday to check out my six. Sorry to those whose sixes I didn’t comment on; was traveling from Phoenix and when I got home, had Internet trouble. Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are getting ready to ring in the new year. Now before I share my six, I wanted to mention something. Since we only have another month left of SS, I wanted to let you know that I will continue to share snippets of my novel after January. I don’t know if any of you plan to do the same, but it would be nice if we could keep the SS going. I plan to share mine on Saturdays, so for those who’ve loved my sixes follow me on Twitter as well as my blog. Likewise, I’ll do the same for you.

So this Sunday, I’m sharing a six where Cammy finally tells Ryan the truth about her dad. It’s a long story, so I’ll be using the next few Sundays to share it. In this six Cammy has just told Ryan that her dad never wanted her and Ryan thinks at first that she’s exaggerating. She speaks first:

“It’s true, my mom once told me how disappointed he was when he learned she was havin’ another girl. Ya know, he hardly held me as a baby and there ain’t any baby pictures of me with him.”

Ryan gazed at her with bulging eyes as his mouth fell open.

“Remember once watchin’ a videotape my mom made of me takin’ my first step. I was walkin’ towards my dad, who was watchin’ some shitty show on TV. When I stepped in front of him, he just picked me up and set me aside.”
