Six Sentence Sunday–01/20/13 Betrothal ~ “Anticipation”

Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday!  I’m still sharing my medieval novella, Betrothal.

This snippet continues from where I left off yesterday on Sweet Saturday Sample, which you can read here.  Geoffrey has just given Alyse some more unexpected news about the coming joust:  she is to ride in the procession and he wants her to choose the knight and lady of the Round Table for them to portray.  Alyse is speechless at this honor and feeling better disposed toward Geoffrey now.

“I will await your decision with anticipation.” He drawled the final word, leaning closer to her again.

She caught her breath. Would he dare?

His gaze held hers until his lips hovered mere inches away from her mouth and she began to tremble. “’Til evening then.” 

Thanks so much for visiting me today.

Now pop over to the Six Sentence Sunday list and check out the rest of the snippets.  See you there!
