It’s time for another snippet from my WIP for the weekly Weekend Writing Warriors. If you want to know more about this blog hop, click the link or the logo to read about it and get your link listed.

The main character of my WIP, currently called STOPPING BULLETS, 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 a lab rat somewhere. But her secret isn’t going to stay secret much longer.

To update: last week, although Justine admitted that she owed Maria plenty for all the favors she’d done for her, she was still too anxious to give it a thought. (For the full story so far, see my past Six Sentence Sunday posts! The first one is here.) We ended the last snippet at “I guess I did owe Maria, and a lot, but I couldn’t worry about that now.”

Did a little snipping to get this down to eight sentences, but it has most of the original.

Well, here’s the next eight!

From the row of patrons in navy blue uniforms, one raised his mug.
“Refill, officer?” Maybe I lived my life ducking from authorities, but I served New York’s finest nightly. Usually, I simply found that ironic. Tonight, the empty counter stool mocked me.
Of the millions of people in this city, it had to be Quinn last night. He knew me well enough to recognize me in the dark, and he was a detective. Was my anonymity blown?

 Work in progress here, but please let me know what you think!
