Six Sentence Sunday – Red and the Wolf

This is a new Six that I thought of an idea for after reading a web comic. Right now, I have it all written down on paper to help get my muse back on track.

(I really need to stop starting new stories and finishing the older ones. :/)

“Beware the wolf.”

The words of Rebecca’s mother bounced around in her head. She clutched the basket to her chest as she stared into the darkened forest.

Grandmother had lived in there since she was a small child and hadn’t wanted to leave when her only daughter had married a sailor. She said that living by the sea made her joints hurt. The forest was all she knew.

What will your Six say?

  1. Nice start, Nellie. You create a sense of warning with the very first line and follow it up with Rebecca’s uncertainty of the forest. πŸ™‚ I will be looking to see where you go from here.

  2. Interesting start, hope you’ll finish it!

    Look at the bright side, you have no dearth of ideas πŸ˜‰

    Intriguing. I love the line about words bouncing in her heart.

  5. There’s a sense of caution there and it’s probably well deserved. Great six!

  6. I like it! Staring into the forest is enough to give me the willies. πŸ™‚

  7. Definite hook, Looking forward to more!
