Six Sentence Sunday — Prometheus Unstitched #SixSunday
Welcome to “Six Sentence Sunday”. Thank you for visiting and especially for any comments you might be inclined to leave.
Prometheus Unstitched is my superhero novella from Evernight, releasing this coming Friday, August 17th.
In this scene, Cory Blindbarrow is trying to wave off what she sees as an over-exaggerated response on Prometheus Man, aka Theo Richelieu’s part to keep her safe from a sniper who has been terrorizing the city. Prometheus Man has the ability to see five minutes into the future. Unfortunately, he is cursed with the inability to convince anyone of his visions.
Cory speaks first.
“I don’t need a bodyguard or escort, Theo.”
“Think of me as an early warning system.”
“More like a watchdog with attention deficit disorder,” she muttered.
Theo smiled, eyes flashing with what she took as amusement. A slight dimple in his left cheek made an encore. “I’ve been called worse.”
Cory Blindbarrow of Blindbarrow Crimefighting Couture, loves her work—from tailoring bulletproof fabrics to engineering concealed weaponry. Kowtowing to the over-sized egos of her superhero clientele? Not so much.
Her newest client, Theo Richelieu, aka Prometheus Man, can see five minutes into the future. Unfortunately, nobody believes him. He’s exactly the type that pushes Cory’s buttons. But he’s also quite talented at engaging (and disengaging) her snaps and zippers. As maddening as Theo can be, Cory can’t deny their supernatural chemistry.
When a sniper targets Cory’s colleagues, Theo appoints himself her protector. His know-it-all attitude soon has her ready to tattoo a bullseye on her forehead. If Theo is unable to convince the headstrong couturier she’s the sniper’s next mark, their happily ever after might never make it out of the design phase.

“Theo smiled, eyes flashing with what she took as amusement. A slight dimple in his left cheek made an encore. “I’ve been called worse.”” Loved that. Great Six!

Ha – watchdog w/ADD! Your humor shines in this six.
Another new release for Miss Shaw! You’re on fire, girl. I have Prometheus on my TBR for Friday. 😉
*licks his … dimple* 😉
Very cool that he can see into the future for a little while. And, the fact that no one believes him, adds to the humor. Great six!
Loved this six! Great descriptions, fun voice, and you made me laugh. Good stuff today!
The banter is just great! Lovely six. Dimples on a watch dog with ADD, LOL.
