Six Sentence Sunday: Lost to Darkness

Hi Sixers, welcome back. Thanks for visiting and leaving such lovely comments last week. Continuing with Girl Under Glass and a little more of the conversation between Rachel and Ehtishem about his people's presence on Earth. (If you've missed the previous snippets, they're here, here, and here.)

An owl whoo-whoo’d and the wood in the fireplace sighed.

“Yet you do to us what was done to you. How can you live with yourselves?” I watched the grotesque shadows that lurked within the fireplace then looked at him. "How can you face me?"

Please take the time to check out more Six Sentence Sunday posts. Lots of great snippets to intrigue, entertain, and titillate. (I just wanted to use 'titillate' in a sentence.)

Oh, and I'll be at the Surrey Int'l Writers Conf. next weekend; if any of you are attending, let me know. I'd love to meetcha!
