Six Sentence Sunday: Hardly a Stranger 2

Yay, this is my second Six Sentence Sunday and I’ve chosen an excerpt from the duel scene in Hardly a Stranger.

* * *

“Three.”

Damn it all. He missed bloody Redding on his days off. He never got into scrapes like this when his servant was around. Lord Silas would never have approached him if Redding had been in attendance last night. That’s it, his days off are cancelled.

    A six that has hooked, I’m intrigued. Well done.

    This made me laugh. I love the idea of the servant keeping the master in line. Nicely done. 🙂

    Sounds like Redding is entirely indispensable! Interesting character! Loved the humor of reversed master/servant roles…

    That made me laugh! Interesting role reversal of master and servant. Great six!

    Love the humor-as if it’s the servant’s responsibility to keep the man’s emotions in check. Someone needs to grow up, me thinks! 🙂

    Glad you found this part funny. Ambrose was a fantastic character to write.

    Karysafaire – Ambrose would argue that he has no need to grow up. He doesn’t like to be serious all the time, even if he is a duke. LOL
