Good morning, Sixers! Welcome back to Six Sentence Sunday! This month, I'm offering you a glimpse of The Navy's Ghost, a story of the one and only female SEAL to make it through training. But don't just stop with me. There are at least a hundred other writers participating in Six Sentence Sunday. Check them out!
In this snippet, we meet Lt. Christiana Brickman for the first time, when she wakes up in the hospital.
Why was everything white? The last thing she remembered was LTJG Todd “Magic” Hunter’s blackened face looming over her, wearing the tight expression he always got when he worked on someone wounded. Hang on, was she wounded? Memory was slow in starting, but she recalled the firefight in the ratty warehouse and their contact luring her into a blind spot. She’d saved the rest of SEAL Team 4, Beta Squad a world of hurt.
It looked like she hadn’t done the same for herself.
Uh-oh! How badly was she wounded? What does this mean for her career as a SEAL? Tune in next week. Happy reading! :)
P.S. Unfortunately, the SEALs were in the news again, this time as casualties. This is my way to honor their amazing abilities, their fierce humanity, and the tragic loss when they leave us. Blessings to them and their families. SM
