Six Sentence Sunday, 29 July 2012 (Erika and the Vampire)

Erika’s own father had never been in the picture. She knew that Annabelle had looked down on her with a sort of pitying wonder until, when Annabelle turned eleven, her father walked out. Walked out, literally, got out of the car on the way back from a family vacation up north, and told Annabelle’s mother to drive on.

Erika had never forgiven Annabelle for her part in it. David had promised Annabelle that they would have lots of time together when he was free of the boredom that was her mother. 

Annabelle helped him keep his affair a secret.

  1. Sue says:

    Interesting dynamics between the two girls, and such conflicting motivations, all the more reason for tension between them

  2. This is a loaded group of sentences–there’s so much information in it, that reading it more than once is beneficial. But in a great way. To think of, like Sue said, the dynamics between the two and to think of what kind of scarring this sort of emotional experience would leave on a girl–very interesting details.

  3. J.A. Beard says:

    Lots of interesting character dynamics here.

  4. soniawrite says:

    I liked your six sentence sunday. I just posted mines check it out.

  5. Elin Gregory says:

    Ooh that was devious. But then kids can be when they see a chance to exploit the differences between parents. This all adds depth to the girls relationship.

  6. Got little confused on who David was, but that’s a problem with sentences taken out of context. But in context–wow.
