Six Sentence Sunday #3

Welcome to this weeks SSS! As with last weeks, this is taken from my current work in progress. Waldo and Elmore have been preparing for the race around Mount Karoagana and have suffered a few mishaps along the way!

Waldo shouted above the roar of the crowds as he ignited the powder in the small dish suspended on the frame. A bright flash dazed the crowds momentarily as the powder ignited, releasing a shower of hot sparks, until only an iridescent blue flame remained. As Elmore released the ropes from his iron grip, the balloon began rising.

“Wahoooo! It’s working Elmore, it’s actually working!” Waldo beamed at the now silent crown as the balloon carried him higher into the sky. He leaned over the edge of the wicker basket and waved a final farewell to Elmore as the winds carried him towards the mountains.

Six Sentence Sunday #2

Welcome to this weeks SSS and my second six! As with last weeks, this is taken from my current work in progress. Enjoy!

The morning of the race dawned, promising a cold and dreary start to the day. Harsh northern winds whipped down the mountains and around the gathered crowd at the cities frozen black gates, doing little to dampen the excitement and anticipation of what would be the first annual marathon across the mountains. Over a dozen teams of racers waited nervously at the starting lines as the gathered crowd gre in size, ready to cheer them off.

“Come along Elmore! We’re almost at the gates!” In a flap of excitement, Waldo hurried off to join the race participants.
