Six Sentence Sunday 3/13

Hey all! Time for another SSS! Suuuuuuuuper excited about it. Check out my fellow awesome participants here!

This week's six is the continuation of last week's. Wanna know how an adorable little fennec can be dangerous?

This is how:


She stepped forward. Her DNA had been combined with a snake’s, but which one? Her forked tongue pierced the air, trying to detect my scent, slit yellow eyes darting left to right.
            “31.” A new voice, glazed by a Spanish accent and panic, invaded the desert as if from the air itself. I struggled to place it.

LOVE it! I'm picturing that fox/snake-like creature. Creeeeeepy! And your twist - that the fennec is another experiment (?) - great twist!

Glazed by a Spanish accent -- great phrase.

(You can make the creature a snake if you want, but after that picture, I still think it's adorable.)

Wow, I hope she's not a poisonous kind.
