For Six Sentence Sunday. This is from Whistle Blowing which will be coming soon, for free, as part of the Love is Always Write anthology. It’s a story about family loyalty, corporate greed, government corruption, and who you trust when you can’t trust anyone.
Daren’s past is catching up and his future is uncertain.
“I was trying to picture my mother, the way she looked when I was little, but I just can’t seem to. I just keep remembering the last time I saw her. I don’t know how much valium she was on but she could barely focus her eyes. And her skin looked kinda stretched, and she had makeup caked on her face. She never used to wear makeup. Not lots of it.
And someone has given this a rating on Goodreads before it has even been released. :-/
