Six Sentence Sunday, 21 October 2012 (Annie Brown and the Superhero Blues)

Annie danced with Rafe. Rafe was not only her date, but her friend. He was family and he was safe. She had never felt quite safe with high school dating, with everybody talking about who had done what with whom. She just didn’t want to think about that yet, and Rafe was fun. He laughed and joked and  she knew that he was perfectly safe because she watched him looking over her shoulder at Apollo dancing with Sunny.

    So he’s interested in someone else? Hmm, wonder if Annie will eventually become jealous.

  2. Ah, a very telling moment. She feels safe with him because he’s interested in someone else. I too wonder if that will change. 😉 Nice six!

  3. Elin Gregory says:

    Hmm so which of them has caught his interest? They say a gay bff is one of the best things a girl can have. nice six.

  4. Sue says:

    a date with someone safe and a sense of humour is a good thing especially if one lives in a frightening world

  5. Had to love this–the whole high school dating scene can be so stressful.

  6. I thought you were going somewhere else with your six until that last line – great twist. Nice six.

  7. It’s always fun to see the perspective of one who doesn’t buy into the common culture. Rafe is safe because he won’t expect more than she is willing to give just because other people think it of him. Nice twist.
