Six Sentence Sunday: Flight #8 -- Violence

Welcome back! It's Six Sentence Sunday, it's the next installation of Flight, and the fight is on. Get yer popcorn and join Bartholomew for a rooftop view.

If you're new or wanna review, the story starts here.


Bartholomew leaned out over the roofline like a gargoyle, smoke swirling around him and away. A small smile tugged up the right corner of his lip. He hadn’t missed how the little girl had twisted Mary’s name into a curse.

Neither had Mary and the larger girl’s fist came around to smash Tilly.

The blow struck her cheek and she crashed into the red brick wall. She landed in a slimy puddle and her head struck the cobblestones with a crack.
