Six Sentence Sunday ~ August 5, 2012

Hello again,
It's August already... and Sunday, too.  Wow.  That week went by so fast it must've been on steroids (or maybe I've just been watching too many sports, aren't the Olympics fun?  Gabby, Michael Phelps, all the volleyball players!)  I just love it.  But now it's time for a few more sentences from THE PHANTOM STUDENT, book two of The Phantom Series.  Hey, also check out my book trailer for book one, The Phantom Pilot.  It's my first try.  Okay, Dude helped ... a lot!

Okay, here's the set-up for this week's snippet. Last week, Jase and Stevie-girl had just entered the old school by way of the cafeteria.  Now, they find themselves in the old kitchen, confronting something they never expected. As always, Stevie-girl is the first-person narrator:


         This was too much. I looked at the closed pantry doors. 
Someone was in there. I tried to remember if I’d ever heard the little girl breathing—do phantoms breathe? 


         Jase held up his hand in a gesture I took to mean stay. Then he crept toward the breathing doors as quietly as possible.


Okay, that's all for this time.  Have a great Sunday.  And check out these other Six Sentence authors.  Such a wonderful, varied bunch!

    1. Good question...you have to come back and read the rest to learn the answer. If it's even the ghost in the pantry!
