Sunday again, and time to share six sentences with you! 🙂
Back in Dioscuri, the tale of Zeus’ twin sons, Kastor (Kast) and Polydeukes (Pol). Pol is immortal, Kast mortal. When Kast is mortally wounded, Pol decides to make a dangerous deal with the Underworld to keep him alive – alternating days with his brother in the world of living and the dead.
Kast can’t know what is happening, or the deal is off. But he has started to suspect something, and goes to see Sibyl, an oracle, recommended to him by his friend Ismene. Only Sibyl, a man despite the name, isn’t exactly as Kast imagined…
“Darling, you made it.”
Kast whirled about, hands going to his knives. The man wore long earrings with pearls, and a long, double row of pearls around his neck. And he wore a…dress? More like a long
robe. And makeup.
Kast forced his gaping mouth shut.

Thanks for dropping by! 🙂
What a sight that oracle must have been. Guess they didn’t have many cross dressers in those days?
What an image of this pearl clad oracle!!! What an imagination to come up with such. Thanks for making me even more anxious for Dioscuri to release.
lol, thank you J.C. and Arlene! The story is Urban Fantasy, so set in modern times – but still Kast was a little surprised. 🙂
very unexpected, I like that. Definitely makes me want to know what happens next.
LOL…yeah he definitely wasn’t expecting his characteristics. Very good six!
I want to read more!
Love the premise of this story. Sibyl is a fascinating character.
Thanks, guys, I really like Sibyl! 🙂
Wasn’t expecting that! LOL! Nice!
Love the pearls! What a great character.
What, never seen a trans-oracle before? What a great take on the legendary Sibyl. Kast’s reaction is classic. Great six!
lol! Thanks everyone. Love your feedback.
LOL I can just imagine what’s going through his mind
I love the genderbending and classic themes in an Urban Fantasy–plus the hook of what will the Sibyl say? Cool six!
Can’t wait to see how this consultation goes.
NIce snippet! I guess everyone’s allowed to dress how they want!
Hard to trust the message when the messenger is weird. Great imagery!
Well, that just not enough! I need much more of this!
Intriguing! Wonder what Kast does…
Doesn’t he know. Pearls go with Everything!
Always intrigued by retelling of Greek mythology.
(The doomed book of my heart was thus.)
Oh that was brilliant!
But you shouldn’t have warned us.
I just wonder what Kast is thinking! Is he aghast or intrigued? Inquiring minds.
Not what he was expecting, huh?
Excellent job. I really liked this.
Love it! A transvestite oracle!
okay, I need this book. Is it done yet? Is it published? When? Is that pushy? Seriously, though, I want it. 🙂
Tee-hee! I’m loving your version of Greek Myths! 😀
lol! Thanks everyone, glad you enjoyed it! The book is due out next month. 🙂
Yeah, my jaw would have dropped too.
Hey Chrys, just popping in to say “hi!”
Cross-dressers unite…lol- I would’ve laughed hysterically if I were Kast
What an intriguing set up! & His reaction is great!
