Welcome back, Sixers, for another Six Sentence Sunday excerpt from Girl Under Glass. So, last Sunday was annoying -- criminal activity in my hood. (No, I was not involved, you cheeky monkeys. And, yes, we're unscathed, but the neighbor's place was not.) The end result is that I didn't get to respond to your comments, so I'm doing it en masse. You. Are. Awesome! (Man, I'm not sure about another group hug. I'm kinda leery 'cause one of you grabbed my ass last week. Erotica writers, you know I'm talking about you. o.O)
Okay, on with it. Picking up from the last post. Here's the alien soldier's response to Rachel's threat to remove his head with her shotgun.

The dogs, baring and gnashing their teeth, advanced. The man eyed my protectors. “Varet!” The word boomed from him even as he remained expressionless.
Thanks for stopping by. Please take a moment to hop over to the official Six Sentence Sunday site and follow more links to other writers' fabulous snippets.
