Sometimes it seems unreal that I Do. . .or Die will be releasing in less than a month, on December 10th. I'm getting really excited about it, and I'm glad I get to share some of it with you each Sunday.
Shelby, the commitment-shy bridesmaid, has had to dodge bullets on several occasions--the first time at a wedding. This time it looks like Detective Nichols has apprehended the shooter, and Shelby is ready to punish the guy:
“I can’t believe what you’ve put me through!”
I wanted to hit the assassin with something, but I’d flown out of the house without grabbing any hitting implements. I glanced wildly around the yard, knowing there had to be something I could use. I pounced on the first branch I saw, and came back to the shooter laying prostrate on the ground.
I gave him a good whack, but it was an old evergreen branch that felt lighter than day-old cotton candy, so all I really managed was to spray the guy with a bunch of desiccated pine needles.
At least he’d smell really fresh while sitting in jail tonight.
I'm sorry I didn't get to read more Six Sentence Sunday snippets last week. I had to work 11 hours last Sunday, so I didn't have a chance to go to everyone's blogs after work like I usually do. I plan to double up this week though, because I don't want to miss all these great stories!
