Six Sentence Sunday

Six Sentence Sunday is a regular hop that I love to take part in but, sadly, often forget to sign up for.

SSS is here: http://www.sixsunday.com so do go and take a look at what everyone's writing about.

And without further ado, here are my six sentences from my current WIP:


Piper released an oar and caressed the Sea Eagle's flaring brown sides. "Your timing stinks, Pop," she muttered as she gripped the oar again to dip it into a wave.
The wrong wave. It propelled the boat onto its crest, throwing up the stern and lowering the bow. If she hadn't been quite so strong and hadn't braced her feet firmly under the bench she'd have been tossed into the sea. She clenched her teeth and braced her legs to take the jolt as the boat fell full-bottom smack into the sea.
