Six Sentence Sunday - The Goblin King - Waking Up With Company


Welcome back, Sixers! Thanks for stopping by and commenting. It always makes my day to see what people thought of the few lines I can share from my work in progress. Be sure to stop by the other authors' blog who participate in Six Sentence Sunday.

In this snippet of The Goblin King, Tricia MacGowan wakes up after the attack (from last week's snippet) in a strange room with the handsome horned man sitting in at chair beside her. She's worried about making a first impression, but she doesn't even know who he is or why he's taken her to his home.

“Who are you?”
“Forgive me; I have forgotten my manners in the rush of events,” he replied as he rose to his feet in a graceful move of a predator. Then he bowed at the waist, but his eyes never left hers. “I am Jakran Thundersong, of the Black Cloud Tribe, King of the Goblins.”
           King of the Goblins? Whatever floated his boat; this was Vegas after all.

Welcome to Tricia's taste of the weird. Thanks again for stopping by and happy reading! :)

  1. Lol. Love the "whatever floated his boat" bit. That's probably not the strangest claim she's ever heard, either. ;)

  8. What happens in Vegas...I guess only there it could pass that a modern woman would meet the King of the Goblins. Loved your snippet!

  10. I'm with the others -- the contrast between his graceful bow and her irreverent "whatever floats your boat, buddy" is fun. :)

  13. Yum! What an excellent six - although I can understand her confusion - who would've thought the king of goblins lived in Vegas?

  14. LOL, only in Vegas, right? I love this six!

  15. Hahaha
    Awesome to throw the world in Vegas.
    LOL Only place it would ever fit without making her go...to the padded room with you!
    Fun six!

  16. I love that she doesn't really seem flustered by the horns--orhis claim to be Goblin King. I really must go to Vegas one day.

  17. Funny how many things we excuse just because it's Vegas, lol. Well done!

  18. Hilarious. Guess it's true that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Jakran Thundersong, King of the Goblins, notwithstanding.

  19. Don't know what would be scarier--a delusional escapee in Vegas or the real Goblin King. Great six!

  20. A little concerned about the combination of horns, predatory body language and waking in a strange room. Intriguing and suspenseful!
