Six Sentence Sunday – Mollusque


This is my first time taking part in Six Sentence Sunday which, as the name indicates, consists in posting any six sentence of a project on Sunday morning. I’ve chosen an excerpt from my 2010/2011 NaNo novel, Oil and Boiling Water. It’s from the pages I edited last night. I’ll probably do the same thing next week unless it happens to fall on an excerpt I already posted during NaNo. 😉

People stampeded above our heads and called out “mollusque” again.
“We say ‘medic’,” Mick explained.
“ ‘Mollusc’ doesn’t incite me to hurry.” Despite my reply, I secured the screwdriver in my tool belt and walked toward my shortcut down the top of the engine.
“You’d hurry if your brother bled on the kitchen floor.”
I spun on my heel and smacked my hand on Éloi’s cheek, effectively sparking surprise layered with a hurt ego and a hint of anger.
