Six Sentence Sunday, Apr 8 (Saint of Sinners)

Happy Easter! Here’s some more Alex for you:

“There are things I can’t talk about.”

“Why not? Don’t you trust me?”

She didn’t get it, and how could she? Hayley had parents that loved her, a brother that loved her. She’d never been beaten, she hadn’t been isolated from the world, she hadn’t been born to destroy the world, and most of all, she was human.

  1. All right, so that’s some nontrivial cultural difference there… laid out in six sentences.

    That nonhuman bit, I wouldn’t worry so much; I’ve spent years working with zombies.

  2. It tells you a huge ton about the speaker when he points out all the things she is not – with the implication that he is. Then, in the kicker She is Human.

    I love this bit.

  3. Great six! “Don’t you trust me?” – what a great set up for showing his internal conflict. It does sound like they have a few obstacles to overcome… 😉
