6 Sentence Sunday June 3, 2012

Hello and welcome back,
Here is another installment of All For Love aka How Long Does it Take to Fall Out of Love?

In this scene, Liz is trying to cope with losing Quinn.  She has started going to the Main Street Pub and enjoying a Bloody Mary to help her sleep at night--but just one!  This particular evening, however, something pulls her back:


      Just as I opened the door to rejoin the world, someone stuck a dollar in the jukebox and The Grassroots Live for Today floated into the air.  Quinn's song; the one he loved so much that he had put it on my phone for his personal ring tone.  It was his mantra.  Live for today.  He’d told me that so often that it was ingrained in my memory like an auditory tattoo.  I hesitated, one foot on the sidewalk, the other on the industrial carpet in the entryway.

Okay, that's all for now.  Hope you check back next Sunday for another snippet.  If you want to read some more juicy excerpts, just go here: http://www.sixsunday.com/
