Six Sentence Sunday, Mar. 6

Here’s something from the WIP. The heroine, Ivy Smithson, is an uptight heiress who’s just gotten a call from Daisy, her wild child younger sister. Daisy announces that she and her inappropriate (to Ivy) boyfriend are getting married:

“Have you set a date yet?” Ivy asked, stalling as her mind raced. How long she would have to convince her sister to come to her senses? It took at least a year to plan a wedding of the size and scope that would be expected for a family of their social prominence. That would be plenty of time to talk her out of this, Ivy realized with relief.
“Yep. The wedding’s the day after tomorrow.”
“What?” Ivy practically squawked.

Now, you don’t think Ivy is going to take this lying down, is she?
