Six Sentence Sunday 11-27-11

 Aidon throws a dinner party for two uninvited live dudes who have sneaked into his subterranean realm to court his new bride. Not only is he serving them underworld food, but he's got another surprise in store. Wasn’t your Thanksgiving table just like this?

          “What are you going to do to them, Aidon?”

          Stephanie nods toward the pair of weeping dingbats.
          Percy munches a flaky biscuit, the waterworks running all the while, unware that the more he eats, the more uncontrollable his tears. Theo slurps a delicate lemon-asparagus soup and tries to pull his seat closer to the table, unconscious of the chamois-covered manacles clamped around his calves, or that the only direction he's moving is down. The polished floor tile beneath the suitors’ chairs recesses again, lowering them another inch or so on their way to Tartarus.
          “What do you want me to do, Steph?”

Just to clarify: This isn't Surfer Dude's story. It's his older brother Aidon's story!

Spiked with attitude, a little tart for the sweet imagery. Tippin' my hat!

Hmmm. They brought upon themselves, I'm sure, but I bet he'll be a hero in the end. Great six!

diannehartsock said...

I have the idea that she better be careful what she answers. No telling what he'll do to the dingbats if he doesn't like her reply. :)

Laura Kaye said...

Ooh, interesting description and world!

Oh, creepy. Great six.
