6SS: Jesscapades

So, I have cunningly employed a friend to sign me up for 6SS each week, because I am hopeless and keep forgetting to do it. This means that even while I am in the throes of busyness and falling to pieces (not literally), you will still be guaranteed of at least one post per week!!

Also, the sky just opened up. Literally. One second it was sunshine, and now it's pelting down. Bizarre.

ANYway, 6SS. Today we find Jess in a spot of trouble after being knocked out in the Shards' territory. Rah :o) For the other 6SS entries, see here :)




Jess's sense of hearing tuned in first, slowly filtering through to her the sounds of traffic and a dog barking. Shortly after that, she realised her head was pounding. Shortly after that, Jess came to enough to realise that she was lying somewhere she never thought she'd find herself: in a back-alley gutter. She squeezed her eyes against the pain, and when it didn't full, she sighed and opened them, blinking bat-like at the evening sunlight that stabbed her retinas.

"Ow." She glared up at the sky with eyelids slitted, cursing it for dancing above her with bright colours that flashed in and out of vision like darting insects.

Huzzah! You finally jumped in and joined us! Good work.

*wonders what to say about the six*

Anything I say is cheating because I already read the chapter. Hmmm.... I like! Put something I haven't read up, and then send me the new chapter!!!
