Welcome dear Sixers and friends to another Six Sentence Sunday as we await Hurricane Sandy here on the East Coast. Stores are out of water,batteries,you name it, and we hope for the best. Survive&Thrive is my motto so we move on to Emily, her tragedy and an important component to the story never mentioned before.
excerpt: Emily tells her children about Patrick’s insistence that she take Karate. He had wanted her to be physically capable of protecting herself. It turns out to be an idea that saves her life.
“He was in her home; Oh God, he slid the door wide open, raced to catch up with her, grabbed her around the waist and dragged her back toward the gaping door. And he was powerful, much stronger than she, a tank compared to a tricycle. Now he had her under the arms, pulling her across the threshold out on the patio, as she kicked and screamed.
Close to the water’s edge he let go and stood above her one foot on her chest, roaring like a lion with his prize.
A quick twist of her body, she grabbed his leg and kicked it from under him. He had something else on his mind and so did Emily; an eye for an eye.”
