Apologies for last week’s snafu–ain’t technology great?
This week’s six from Giant Killer continue from last week’s late posted snippet. We pick up following the appearance of Eitan:
“Cousin—” panted the child “—your father bade me find you and desires that you return home.”
“Has some ill befallen him?”
“A stranger has come—Miriam says from Gibeah!”
Fear for the safety of his brothers clutched at David’s heart, making it race. He gathered his staff and lyre and, without a backward glance at Eitan, raced up the hillside to cross the fields with long, ground-eating strides.
Thanks for taking the time to read and comment! Be sure to check out the other Sixers here.
‘Til next time!
I love the emotion in this. But – sheep, good shepherd and all that? Would Eitan take over looking after them?
He does. (That exchange got skipped to get the interesting 6. 😉 )
I liked that you gave us two possible points of concern with this six. Not only that there’s a stranger, but from where he hails may be an issue too. Well done!
Thanks, Riley! Glad you stopped by!
Tense six, beautifully described!
Thanks, Gemma! Glad you stopped by!
