Six Sentence Sunday Oct 14 Almost An Outlaw



Darlene, Richie and Tommy Ray are taking a break this week. I decided to pick a few lines from my western romance novella, Almost An Outlaw, that features the hero, a former Missouri guerrilla captain during the Civil War, who has returned to Liberty in search of a stolen horse and he is reunited with his childhood sweetheart and her cousin, Jesse James. 


He rarely went to saloons nowadays. He didn’t like gambling, and there was always the chance some fool was going to call him out. He had done enough killing to last a lifetime. The great passions that had driven him during the war had faded. He was no longer the avenger who rode under a black flag. The fury and the hatred were gone, leaving him with nothing.

I'm sorry to see Darlene and the gang taking a vacation -- but I know they earned it. LOL This is an intriguing story already, since he feels he has nothing without his anger. :)

Beautifully written six--and really showcases the versatility of your writing, that you do both this and Darlene so well.

I'm glad his fury and hatred are gone, but now what? Idle hands can be trouble and for some trouble comes naturally, lol. So intriguing. Fab 6.
