Six Sentence Sunday

Welcome to my SSS! Finishing out the month of September with a snippet from the last Wranglers book, Judgment. In this one, Sam and Derek have been dating for a number of months, but Sam's parents don't even know he's gay. Until they surprise him with a visit. The following snippet comes from a conversation between Derek and Sam's father.


"...I’m just saying, this is all new to me. I don’t know how it works. Like, which one of you is the girl?”

Derek stared at him, not really surprised the man had actually had the balls to ask that question. “Neither one of us. Otherwise, then we’d be straight, and you and I wouldn’t be having this extremely awkward conversation.”

Great for you to take it in this direction - and hey - dad is asking - instread of just slamming the door on all communication. I like these characters

OMG! I loved it. I can just imagine if my father-in-law asked if I spit or swallow. I think I would have to deck him. That was so true and so excellently done. Very Good six! Thanks for sharing.

Great 6. The dialogue is straightforward, and Dad asks a completely inappropriate and awkward question just like real world parents do, lol.
