This is from Lillie McFerrin‘s five sentence fiction prompt, Character. She writes that she would like to “hear five sentences about one of your main characters in your NaNo or other WIP”, and my response is from a work in progress:
He is, she is, an array of names travelling in fine boots.
A practiced charmer with a penchant for knowledge, his confidence springs from a forbidden science.
Her morals are uncertain and her kindness unpredictable, but her laugh cannot fail to delight.
And in spite of a flippant manner, a seemingly fickle nature, his ambition is guarded seriously.
For she is too self-interested to make her gambles without just cause.
