Happy Sunday, all! This is a huge week for my family. My little girl turns eleven on Tuesday, and Friday is a trip to the GA Aquarium. Woo hoo! Love that place. Next Sunday is also a big day for us, but I’ll talk more about that next week. 😉
Across the room, the mattress squeaked as the mark shifted his weight. His bare chest presented itself to the ceiling as his tangled limbs twitched in peaceful sleep I would soon end.
The stink of cigarettes permeated the room and would linger on my clothing long after my work here was done. I probably burned more clothes in my fireplace than I kept in my closet. For that reason, I dressed casual for work most nights in worn jeans, scuffed sneakers, and a t-shirt.
My brother disapproved, which was nothing new.

With the first two sentences, I thought something hot and steamy would happen, but with the next sentence, my ideas were abruptly halted. Very intriguing! I hope to read more of this. Have fun this week. 🙂
I love how this is written. So intriguing xx
I'm with Jess, very intriguing. Have fun at the Aquarium!

Nice show, thinking about covering up the crime as he gets ready to kill. Burning clothes, sins staining. Very intriguing.
Thanks for sharing,
mysterious – what is her job ??
Gem Sivad says
"The mark" …sounds like he's destined to meet death soon. Does death wear scuffed sneakers and frayed jeans?
Eek: my guess that he ain't gonna wake the mark up with kisses.
Yeah, I'm with sassypeaks-her job. Please. Or is it more pleasure than a job
Dee Carney says
Very intriguing set up. Can't wait to read more!
Okay, you have my attention utterly and completely. What is she going to do to him?
Taryn Kincaid says
These are wonderful. Waiting to see whether she's an assassin or con artist. Love "the mark" shifting his weight, his tangled limbs. Wonder if he's hero potential…or about to be whacked!
Lucy Felthouse says
Wow. Awesome 🙂
JoAnne Kenrick says
oh, her mark…I'm now wondering what she is about to do to him… kill him? Con him? Hmm anything is possible! Really fantastic descriptions, I could almost smell and see the scene set for more!
Lauri J Owen says
Hmmmm. Very interesting set up. Is she going to kill him? Can’t wait to find out!
Very intriguing! Is she going to kill him?
Susanna Fraser says
Intriguing, with a strong voice–great six!
Curiosity abounds! I love the idea of an assassin in a t-shirt and jeans. that's so full of awesome!
Loved it! The beginning conjures up one expectation but you suddenly bring that to a screeching halt and make me speculate. Great tease.
Emily Cale says
Love that last line!

If what's gonna happen is what I think is gonna happen….great insight into her character in so few words!
