Six Sentence Sunday – Published Stories #4

The final story of this series is ‘The Harpist’. This story probably shocked me the most – I submitted it one night for publication on the 1000words blog, and when I awoke the next morning it had been published!

Hannah listened in awe as the harpist before her set his fingers to the strings and began to play. She knew Emmanuel had skill, but his performance today far surpassed any she had heard from him before. This lad was her greatest rival, and yet on the odd times they had spoken she had found him funny, off-beat, cute. And though she would never admit it, whenever she looked into his deep blue eyes her heart skipped a beat.

As the cascading notes came to an end and the roar of applause filled the auditorium Hannah felt a gentle push between her shoulder blades.

“Your turn.”

This is one of my favourite stories so far, alongside Ermaline’s Feast.
