Six Sentence Sunday (Eden Springs)
Here is my weekly offering to Six Sentence Sunday. A few lines from my western novella Eden Springs coming in late May or June from Dreamspinner Press. A story of crime, violence and astronomy in the old west. This is part of a scene where Aaron, a tracker and scout, is hunting the bad guys with the local sheriff, and finds a child’s doll in a bush.
“That said I wouldn’t mention it to the Professor.”
“Because I’ve known him for a few years now and if you strip away those nice clothes and dust all the stars out of his head he’s got a cold hard temper, same as any other man. And I know he wasn’t in the war but he doesn’t talk about his past and I’ve seen a look in his eyes… I’m sure he’s a good man, never seen anything to say otherwise, but let’s just say I wouldn’t want to be the one standing in front of him when he hears about that little doll.”
Aaron looked back down at the doll in his hand.
