Six Sentence Sunday – Aug 21, 2011

Here’s my Six Sentence Sunday!

The soldiers shoved River toward the room, leaving her no choice but to enter. Not that she had one anyway. They had purchased her from the mining colony on Kuming-14 a few days ago and herded her onto a transport ship with a dozen other dirty-faced girls. When one of them asked where they were going, a soldier quickly reprimanded her with a backhand to her face, splitting her lip and bruising her cheek.

They were not to question their authority.
