Six Sentence Sunday 9-11

“What do you think happened, Cole?” Lara asked, gesturing at the over-the-top honeymoon decorations dripping forlornly off the cabin’s redwood beams and rafters.  

"Always one thing or another with Bree. She's never been the same since September 11."


Cole shrugged to ward off the black despair that shadowed the most hidden part of him and threatened to descend again, as it had for ten years, when he considered his sisters inner demons -- more private and personal than his own.  

"Eighteen, engaged to be married that June. We couldn’t get her to return to the living – not for a long time after.”

A very delicately sad 6. I like that even though Cole obviously has his own issues, he understands the depth of his sister's pain.
