Six Sentence Sunday - Walking The Edge: Snippet #6
It's absolutely awful where I live today - dratty weather, lots of rain and wind, cold. Ick! But... it's the perfect weather to snuggle with a cup of hot chocolate and peruse the SSS snippets. So there you have the highlight of my day. :)
So, I posted about the dream Amelia has of her hunky French lover in the past 2 weeks. Today I'm gonna show you what happens when she does track down this man. His name is Gerard Besson, and he is a police commissioner in Marseille.
Gerard is right in the middle of a tricky investigation featuring a gang of high-end casino robbers, and he is suspicious of Amelia when she waltzes into his world. He wants answers from her, but things don't exactly go as he had planned when he corners her in a dark side alley.
"...Biding his time, he snuck in a breath when she took a step back, closer to the dark alleyway. Then with a lunge, he swept her into his arms and pulled her back, braced against his chest. With one arm, he restrained her torso while he brought the palm of his other against her opened mouth.
Instead of kicking and screaming, she went still. That should have alerted him that something was off, but he didn't listen to his gut feeling, intent as he was on getting answers out of her.
"Who sent you?" he growled in her ear, but he had no time to say more, because he felt a sharp jab in the sensitive flesh under his arm. ..."
Catch the other SSS snippets here - trust me, you won't be disappointed!
