8 sentences from any story, published/unpublished and that’s all it takes to be on Weekend Writing Warriors. Fall is fast approaching, but it takes longer for it to show up here in the Bluegrass State. I’m continuing to share snippets from my YA horror novella, The Burning Night, which is in the editing stages.
“Me-li-ssaaa…your time is coming, prepare yourself!”
The spine-chilling tone swirled around every corner of the room, wrapping cold waves around my body, while my hands trembled as I stepped back. “Wh-who are you? Wh-what do y-y-you want?”
“Poor little Ashley’s down by herself, Me-li-ssaaa.”
“H-h-how did you know her name? D-d-don’t you dare go near my sister!!”
My legs suddenly became weak and shook to the point where I thought I was going to lose my balance.
Wow! It knows Ashley’s name, too. I bet you’re wondering what the voice means with “Your time is coming, prepare yourself” bit. What’s Melissa going to do? More next week on what happens next.
