The days appear to be getting colder and colder. I don’t know what it is, but November always seems to drag on. Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors. Click on the link to read other snippets from diverse authors.
I’m continuing to share snippets from my YA horror, The Burning Night.
Set-up: Melissa and Ashley are trapped in a strange room, which is scaring Ashley. Melissa tries to calm her sister down when they discover they are not alone.
I pulled Ashley towards me and shook her.
“Listen to me,” I said, staring into her eyes. “I’ll get us out of here, I promise!”
“Forget it, kid, there’s no way out,” a female voice barked from above as I nearly jumped out of my skin. We looked up at the ceiling as a middle-aged woman with curly black hair stared down at us through a circular skylight. She was sandwiched between two young women with raven black hair, both of them gazing at us with intimidating grins. They couldn’t have been older than twenty-five.
The woman locked her eyes on me and said, “Welcome…Melissa Murdock.”
Wow, what a creepy woman! I’ll share more next week. I’d love to know your thoughts as they help me in the editing process. Enjoy your Sunday however you choose to do so.
