It's Sunday once again, and time for Six Sentence Sunday. I cannot wait for that time to come every week, to meet and greet all the amazing folks who visit and leave me comments. Thanks soooo much for your feedback - you all are the highlight of my week!
It's a calm, quiet, and cloudy Sunday here in Mauritius. The sun is peeking from time to time, and temps are comfortable - just perfect to curl up with some good written excerpts and socialize with all the wonderful SSS authors out there. :)
On to this week's snippet. Remember, last week, the hero of Walking The Edge, Marseille police commissaire Gerard Besson, was attacked in front of his house. A little while earlier, he had left the heroine, Amelia, in a darkened alleyway next to a bistro, thinking her to be a honeytrap sent to lure him away from the investigation he's working on. After the first blow, he wondered whether she could've sent someone after him when she failed to seduce him... Is he right? Read on :)
He had no time to ponder—a heavy booted foot collided smack into his stomach and sent him to his knees, and the gun dropped from his hand. He could barely see the man kick the Sig away - Now's the time to hit him. But he wasn't fast enough; the thug smashed a hard blow to Gerard's temple.
Black dots danced before his eyes.
It would take more than that to knock him out. He looked up and knew he'd be no match against the gun his assailant yanked from inside his jacket. ...'
More SSS snippets here - do take a look, you'll find some amazing finds, I guarantee!
From Mauritius with love,

As usual fantastic snippet. You do a wonderful job with fight and tense scene.
You know how to keep a 'body' hanging don't you. I have to come back next week :-)
Love that he's fast enough to think, 'now's the time to hit him.' yet he's not fast enough to actually do it ;)
Thanks Piper! Like I said, this was my first time writing suspense and action, I really, really wanted to get it right. Glad if I managed. :)
Lol Sherry! Uhm... that was my aim, actually, to make you all wanna come back... I know, wicked of me, innit? :)
1000th Monkey - yup. The mind is working fast but when you've been hit, the body fails to follow as you'd want it to. :)
OUCH! He's in a tight spot! I fear for him!
Yup Kathleen - it's a precarious position...
