Six SentenceSunday.

Welcome to my blog, and thank you for checking out my sentences.  In this excerpt which shows how my hero's accident and the loss of his NFL career took a toll on his entire family, my hero's mother confronts her husband.  Stacy is the hero's old girlfriend, and Chris is the hero's brother.


You’re thinking he’ll be another Matt. Chris doesn’t quite measure up does he, so I’m sure you’re overjoyed.” Her face suffused with color.  “Anyway,” she spat, “you were always hot for Stacey yourself. You couldn’t sit still from the minute she came into the house until the time she left. You panted after her like a dog after a bone.”
