Six Sentence Sunday

It’s time for Six Sentence Sunday, the fun group where participants post six sentences of something – a WIP, a published work, a contracted work, you name it.

This week’s six sentences come from my WIP Ties of blood. They’re about as rough as you can get.

(working cover)

A coyote called loudly in the distance, and the hair on the back of her neck stood up in response. She licked her lips, and tried to quiet her pounding heart. It was so loud that she couldn’t hear anything over it. Fighting for calm, she drew a tight, strangled breath and then something very near her moved.

A hand grabbed her shoulder and a scream tore from her lips. She tried to fight off her attacker, but strong hands held her arms to her sides and pinned her to the tree. The bark was rough, even through her coat, and their blood scented breath was warm in her face.

 

Be sure and check out the other participants and thanks for stopping by!

    • I know what you mean, Jessica. 🙂 My mother is a silent screamer. Wide eyes, open mouth, but not a peep comes out. Scaring the crap out her is a blast.
