Six Sentence Sunday - Walking The Edge: Snippet #7
I cannot believe it's already Sunday. One week of school vacation down, another 2 to go - a good dose of awesome SSS snippets should help tide me through. :)
Wanted to say thanks to everyone who comes over - whether it's your first visit or you're a regular visitor - and a special, special thanks to all who leave me comments. You have no idea what your words mean to me.
So, last week I started an action sequence in the story.Gerard, the policeman hero, thinks Amelia has been sent to lure and seduce him - what is known in their world as a honeytrap. He's intent on getting answers, as was shown here last week, but Amelia refuses to play the game.
Here's today's snippet (editted for the purpose of this post) - it continues from last week's post as the POV changes from Gerard's to Amelia's.
'... Amelia felt his hold release a little, and without pausing to think, she listened only to the instinct that had first told her to freeze and then to attack, the same one that had taken over in the mall the day before. Lifting her leg, she kicked her boot heel into his shin with as much momentum as she could swing. She felt him take a step back, carrying her along, and she released the hold of her fingers near his armpit, then jabbed her elbow in his ribs.
His body lurched back, and he released her. She sprang forward and spun around to face him, but he was quick too. He lunged at her, and the weight and brute masculine force of his big body ploughed into her and knocked the breath out of her lungs. ...'
