Weekend Writing Warriors – Danger is Manifest
Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors on Patricia Green Books. This is a great hop, with lots to offer a savvy reader. My eight sentences this week are from Rescued by the Spy. They’re another segment from the beginning of the book, where Nina makes the mistake of going down a dark tunnel on the way home from the grocery store.
Sweat trickled down Nina’s spine and between her breasts as she hurried toward the open end of the tunnel. The footsteps weren’t furtive, but were easily keeping pace with her. She gritted her teeth, primal fear mixing with self-preservation instinct. In front of her, a shadow moved, and she knew, even as she gasped and came to a clumsy halt, that she was in deep trouble.
“Hey, lady,” the man snarled. He was only two-and-a-half meters in front of her, but she couldn’t quite make out his features yet.
“What do you want?” she demanded, trying to keep her voice modulated and not quite accomplishing it. “Let me pass.”
Nina’s encounter isn’t a hi-how-are-ya moment.
