Hey WeWriWa! This is the last snippet in a series, and a direct continuation from last week’s post (check it out here, or the rest of my posts here). To meet some new authors, read some great writing, or join in the 8-sentence fun, stop by at Weekend Writing Warriors!
“I won’t hurt you,” he says, with a voice like amber and pine. It makes me want to believe him.
But sixteen years of instinct scream otherwise. My eyes flick to Mother’s body, discarded in the dirt. It would be better to be ripped by the Shadows then fall into the people’s hands.
The boy takes a step towards me. I look one last time at Mother.
I lunge for my dagger and sprint for the trees, as the night swallows the sun, and I leave my heart behind.
There you have it! I know this one was short, but I wanted to finish the scene. I hope you enjoyed 🙂 This scene is the start of the action in the story, and so much more to come. Looking forward to all your posts, and happy 8 sunday!
