Six Sentence Sunday - Walking The Edge: Snippet #8

Hey beautiful people!

And another week has gone by - just don't ask me where. I have absolutely no idea what I've done in the past 7 days. Not blogging, that's for sure, so I thought I'd jump back in the saddle today. Cannot let SSS slide by, can I? :)

Again, thanks to everyone who drops by; special thanks to everyone who leaves comments; and a special, special thanks to those who pimp my posts on FB and Twitter. I have no idea what I've done to be so liked and appreciated by you all, but let me just say I'm grateful to know each and every one of you! xoxo

So, sappy moment out of the way, let's jump back into the action. Last week, Amelia got into a fight with Gerard, the hunky French cop who believes her to be a lure sent to seduce him. Gerard didn't get to where he is in the police force by playing fair - and it's not today with Amelia that he's gonna start being Mr. Nice Guy.
Last week, we left them just as he'd ploughed his big body into hers when she tried to attack (scroll down to the post right before this one if you wanna read it!).
What's Amelia gonna do? Read on for today's Six:

'... Her mouth opened to scream with the pain, but more agony cut her vocal chords when she slammed into the hard, solid, cold brick wall. She squeezed her eyes shut with the pain.
His crouching body pinned her, his knees pressing hard against her thighs. His torso shifted, and she heard a click. When she opened her eyes, she found herself staring into the barrel of a gun.
"Who sent you?" he asked. ...'

Check out the rest of the stunning SSS crew's snippets here.

From Mauritius with love,

Zee

Thanks Sandy. I always admit it wasn't an easy scene to write because I had to get the pace, the action, and the emotion right. Glad if all these came through though. :)

Very nice action! You could probably take out the word *solid* from the first line, as it's kind of already implied, and (being dyslexic, these things really jump out at me), i found it distracting that you used *pain* twice :)

I'll be very sorry to miss the next couple weeks while I'm away :)

Zee Monodee said...

Thanks 1000th Monkey - good catches! My eyes glossed over these. :)
Will be sad to miss you, but enjoy your break. xoxo
