Six Sentence Sunday - Vertigo

At the finish of his admission, his blues met my terrified hazels. “What do you mean, 'consume'?"
“Doctor, your sweat is what brought me out of my death-like sleep.

****

These six sentences are from "Longing for a Normal State of Vertigo" in the Riding the Rocket anthology.

I've heard of sweat equity--and this just might be the pay off. LOL beautiful cover, too.

TY Sarah for the support. I love the cover as well. ;)

If it's all the same to you, I'd rather have a Dr. Pepper.

Very intriguing and not something a doctor hears every day! Sounds like you've got something very different and interesting going with this one.

Rawiya said...

LOL. Thank you Taryn and Monica for visiting. I just finished the full version yesterday and sincerely hope that it intrigues the readers as much as the 6 sentences!
