Six Sentence Sunday

I've had an insane week, but at least I got my SSS up! Continuing with my Wranglers series, the third novella, The Defense Rests, finds Derek and Sam assigned to the same side of a case for the very first time, a move that creates more than a little friction between them.

“Fuck it up, and it’s going to make Rudy think twice the next time something comes along the pipeline. Don’t tell me I’m wrong.”

Derek looked even unhappier than he’d seemed at the office. “I didn’t ask for you to help me.”

“No, I did that all on my lonesome. Because in spite of what my mouth ran off with before, you’re important to me, whether you want to be or not.”


To check out all the other six sentence contributions, head over to the official website.

I hope they're going to kiss and make up. The tension between the two and then his confession at the end is great.

I really like his last comment "Because in spite of what my mouth ran off with before, you’re important to me, whether you want to be or not." It brings all the emotion into it without saying too much. Beautiful six! :)
