On the theme of Six Sentence Sunday, here's a few sentences from my recently released novella, Ryann, which is available for FREE.
Ryann turned to face the wall to count the marks she had made there. “Forty-two.” The punishment from Bramwel and the cost of new clothes had reduced her savings quite considerably. It was going to take forever to save the twenty silver coins to buy her freedom. She tried to do a little math in her head. Forty copper coins was equal to two silver coins, and that meant she still had to earn another eighteen silver coins...
Living during a time when children were sold as indentured servants, Ryann must find a way to buy her freedom before the bullying son of her lord and master exacts a deathly vengeance upon her.
