This is my first Six Sentence Sunday. I can’t wait to visit the other sites and read all the entries.
This is from chapter 2 of my upcoming release Dangerous Embrace. Sarah wakes sick from the realization that her nightmare of being attacked was not a dream, it was real and she has the bruises to prove it. She lives alone so when someone knocks on the door, it’s quite a surprise. She has no idea someone has been there watching over her, making sure she’s safe.
Hope you like it.
When the painful dry heaving stopped, she lay back on the cold tile floor, exhausted, and waited for the room to stop spinning. Her ragged breaths roared in her ears and seemed to echo in the quiet room. When her breathing slowed, the silence ebbed around her in waves, but when footsteps approached the bathroom door, she tensed again.
A bead of sweat dripped down her scalp, and at the same time someone tapped at the door. Her pulse spiked, and she fought like hell to remember who brought her home from the hospital.
She closed her eyes. “Who’s there?”
