MARKED {INTO THE UNKNOWN} #sixsunday


Good Sunday, everyone!

Thank you all for returning to my blog each week to read my snippets.

For the last couple weeks, you’ve followed the antics of Sean Holloway and no doubt tried to figure out what the shifty werewolf (get it: shifty werewolf? Heh) has been up to. This week, he hits the shops again, trying to find what he’s been looking for in his secret outings. From Marked, in the Into the Unknown anthology due out December 1st:

“It’s just that she has a tendency to … swell …” My fingers stretched out from compressed to straight, like I thought the mime explained everything in one action. “… or grow … bigger … and I need jewellery that will accommodate that.”

“Is it some form of oedema your partner is suffering with?” asked Mr Owl.

I swung my attention back to the huge unblinking eyes that peered out from behind even bigger, round glasses. “Not exactly.”

Poor Sean. One has to feel slightly sorry for him, eh?

To be continued next week ….

Cheers for stopping by. Links to the other participants can be found HERE—you should check them out—or why not sign up and join in the fun yourself?

      He always tries hard. He just doesn’t always get it. :P

    Coming at this cold, is Mr. Owl by any chance a were-owl?

      Just your bog-standard shop assistant, ma’am. Thanks for stopping by. :)

    I’d have a hard time explaining that one, too. Lol. Nice seeing another side to Sean. Great six, Julie!

    Edema? Good guess from the Owl Man. LOL Yeah… uh, not exactly is the correct answer.

    • #20 by jabelfield on November 21, 2011 - 11:32 am

      Ha! Yeah, not exactly’s right. *snort* :P

  11. #21 by pippajay on November 22, 2011 - 12:11 pm

    Yeah, no one appreciates some of the problems shifters have. :)

  12. #22 by gayleramage on November 22, 2011 - 2:39 pm

    lol! See, people forget that poor werewolves have problems keeping clothing, jewellry, etc, intact when they change form. :D

    Oh, and I love the name Mr Owl!
