It’s Six Sentence Sunday again! I hope readers have started to get a real feel for this story. Unfortunately the end of this month will also be the end of Six Sentence Sunday. Just when things were getting going!
Six Sentence Sunday, or #sixsunday, is just what it sounds like: I post six sentences from my work on my blog. That’s it! Follow the link in the caption if you’re interested in participating. But as I mentioned, 27 January, next week, will be the last week.
This week’s excerpt is from my WIP currently called STOPPING BULLETS (still awaiting a better title). My main character is a young woman, Justine, with a talent for stopping bullets and moving other things with her mind. She lives a secretive life to avoid becoming an experiment in a lab somewhere.
I’ll just pick up where I left off last week, where Justine had just realized the approaching police officer is her friend, Quinn Duncan.
I ducked my head, but it snapped back up passive as the young man ran past me. He slowed down and reached into his shirt. The meager light winked on something solid and smooth.
With a smirk, he turned and aimed a gun at Quinn.
My breath strangled in my throat. Time didn’t slow.
This is hardly a finalized work, so with that in mind, feel free to comment!
