Sunday Six #3



Today this is a glimpse into a writing assignment I did in a class I took. What started as a simple idea about a can of coffee soon took on a life of it's own. One day I'll explore more of this story. Even if it's only six sentences at a time. LOL

~~
The sun’s warm rays lost their luster as she gazed down at the bullet cradled in her hand. Digging down into the can of coffee grounds, she unearthed five more siblings. A faint memory, from a past she tried to hide from, forced it’s way to the surface. She didn’t want to live like that anymore. Surviving one day to the next, hiding ammunition anywhere, and everywhere.

She wasn’t a killer anymore…was she?

  9. I finished reading the snippet and the only thing that came to mind- 'Oh, wow.' Is she, or isn't she. Only she doesn't know but I want to know more
