Well, its back to ‘Day of Revenge’ again. I’ve decided to altnernate my six sentences between ‘Day of Revenge’ and ‘To be Maria’.
This short scene is taken from chapter one and it involves two of my minor protagonists–Elle and Emile. Emile is the best friend of Emmanuel d’LeVasque–the main character–and he is the son of a nobleman. Elle is a lowly servant girl who works on a vineyard. She is Emile’s lover.
Here are my six.
“Elle, dear, the moonlight cannot hide the look of fear upon your face,” Emile says. He flips the mass of curls behind her thin shoulders.
Elle lowers her head so to avoid the worried look on his face. “Then why do you bring me here every night? You know how I feel, Emile.”
On impulse, Emile grabs her by her shoulders and presses his lips against hers.
