Six Sentence Sunday: The Killer Valentine Ball


For fun, thought I'd try something different and share some sentences from my short story, The Killer Valentine Ball for Six Sentence Sunday.

Jess wonders if maybe, just maybe, there's a way to save this one when she goes out on a blind date -- on V-Day of all days! (Can you say loser?)
Well, it turns out to be a night she'll never forget...

Six sentences from The Killer Valentine Ball by C.A. Verstraete

The music played quietly in the background. When the shadows brightened, Jess caught a quick glimpse of one of the couples. The young man's mouth gaped open. His partner's gown glistened with streams of dark ribbons. The light flashed again and Jess gasped. Those weren't ribbons!

  7. Alrighty then.

    Now you have me wondering what those dark ribbons, that aren't ribbons are.

    I'm guessing they're something very ominous.

  8. I own The Killer Valentine Ball! I enjoyed it. I'm not a horror fan, so normally I don't go for it, but it was "soft" horror, so I was able to enjoy it without getting all queasy.
