Six Sentence Sunday - Walking The Edge: Snippet #12
It's Sunday once again. Bright and sunny here, but still cold as heck - I need my afghan, a cup of coffee, and some good reading to snuggle down to. But that's not an issue today, innit, since the snippets of Six Sentence Sunday will be up. :)
I'm concluding this action scene in the dark alleyway of Marseille today - next week, we move to another meeting between Gerard and Amelia. But for today...
Remember how last week Amelia was left with the tip of the gun against her temple, trapped between Gerard's big, hard body and the cold brick wall? What happens next? Does Gerard act on his threat? Read on for more (snippet edited for purpose of this post).
'... He remained like that for what felt like forever - his raspy, rapid breaths echoed in her mind, merging with the sound of her own gasps. She was going numb, blackness engulfing her brain, and she needed air.
Then, suddenly, he was off her - she sagged, the flat of her hands sliding down the wall while she forced air into her lungs.
You bastard, she couldn't help but think while she struggled for breath. He'd moved out onto the main street, leaving her here in the darkened alleyway.
Who did he think he was? ...'

High suspense six! I'm hooked. MUST. HAVE. MORE.
I think he thinks he's the boss! Guess she'll have to prove him wrong. Great Six!
Lol. Thanks Alix! :)
Oh yes, that's right, Gem. She will prove him wrong very soon. ;)
Oooh, he's going to pay for that. Great six!
Who does he think he is, indeed? Great six.
Not who he thought he was, I think! Great six!
Great to see her rally so quickly. Go get him! lol
I bet she thinks up a suitable revenge and payback time is not far away. Great 6.
Hey! Keep going...what happens next?
Yes, who is this guy! I am hooked! :)
Just who is that guy?! I love this six!!

Lol Cherie - yes, he will pay, very soon. I start that scene next week, hopefully. :)
Sue, I'm in Mauritius - Indian Ocean, Southern Hemisphere. We're still in the thick of winter here.
And lol, another dumb guy who thinks he calls the shot. When will they ever learn, eh? :)
Lol Lex, he sure is. But he redeems himself later. :)
Jessica, he thinks he's Mr. I Call The Shots. She's about to prove him wrong though. :)
