Six Sentence Sunday — Prometheus Unstitched #2 #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, just released this past Friday, August 17th.
In this scene, our prickly superhero costume designer, Cory, is looking for a pattern for a former client. Theo aka Prometheus Man, is with her.
Fingers flying she worked her way through the files documenting the Blindbarrow legacy. Some of the designs were classics and withstood fashion’s caprices. Others, such as the trendier ones from the seventies with their ridiculous bell-bottoms, had been long forgotten.
“Let’s see … Tar Man, Tasmanian Tiger Girl, Uvula Woman … oh, she was a cool one…” She pulled the file out an inch to peek at the design.
Theo quipped, “And these were the superheroes you took on as clients because they weren’t lame?”
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.
