Six Sentence Sunday

On I go with one more round of edits on Heirs and Graces, before I send it off to be beta'd. This week's six are again set in October 1963. Edward is in London, and has just been involved in a small altercation:

"Lord Edward, what have you been doing this time?" Ada Bellows said, setting the kettle on the hob.

"That's a story for another day. I've no time for tea either," Edward said. He dried his hands on a tea towel, and pulled a comb from his pocket. First off he was going to remove nine-tenths of the Brylcreem from his hair. Then he was going to change his clothes, and get Ada to dispose of this set; he'd got her son out of a nasty jam a couple of years before, and she was a reliable sort when it came to repaying favours.

To see what other people have been posting this week, go to the website here and follow the links to all the story extracts, with something to suit every taste.
