SIX SENTENCE SUNDAY

Good morning.... this week's six comes from one of my current WIP's... I Can See For Miles....

To set you up... Josh has been taken to Camp Aisling, a camp for the blind, by his friends Mario and Greg. Stepping into the office... he hears the voice of Charlie Sayward... the founder of the camp....



“Maggie!”
Josh tilted his head toward the sound of the voice.  He felt something warm unfurl in his belly as he let the tone and timbre wash over him.  Josh had always thought that it was an old wives tale, you know, that old saying that when you lost one of your senses, the others became heightened to compensate – but it was true.  Scents, the way something felt beneath your fingertips, how things tasted had all changed and sounds...they had seemed to develop a description all their own and the voice he had just heard?  That voice sounded like the slow burn of whiskey rolling across your tongue and sliding down your throat before the warmth of it settled in your stomach and expanded in your chest.

DON'T FORGET TO CHECK OUT THE OTHER SIXES OVER AT SIX SENTENCE SUNDAY
