8 Sentences from: Choices

Thank you for stopping by. A brief blurb about the story: A traitor hides within a group of women and children Ranger Thaenad and a group of Black Wolves rescue from the clutches of enemy forces. He must decide if he is willing to pay the greatest price to ensure the safety of those he came to help. The snippet this week immediately follows this post and last weeks post. Hope you enjoy.

choices3The patrol passed between his patch of brush and the hut without showing an inclination to investigate either. He allowed himself a shallow sigh of relief, although their behavior puzzled him. The enemy faded into the night, and he left the thicket’s shelter.

Another dark cloud obscured the moon. Thaenad dashed to the rickety building. His soundless passage across the ground and over the planks of the porch brought him to the cabin door, which jerked open. An arm reached out, snatched the collar of his tunic, and pulled him inside. He sprawled belly-down on the floor and a body plopped on his back, pinning him.

      Thanks for stopping by and especially for the facebook page like I need “X” likes for “something” – dunno what that is. Glad you enjoyed the snippet.

  1. With my suspicious mind, I’m wondering why the enemy passed by without investigating! So clearly I’m hooked and invested in the story…great snippet.

      Thanks for stopping by and glad you enjoyed. There IS a reason they do not investigate – although that isn’t discovered until later on.

  2. Great description, Susan, and the first thing that came to my mind, after being taken by surprise, is that he’s fallen into friendly hands…. and I can’t wait to find out if I’m right. I sure hope so!!!

  3. I enjoyed the action. Held my breath there for a moment right with him…then felt the air whoosh from my lungs when he got plopped on. Nice eight!

    • Hi, Millie
      🙁 but mine has no dragons like yours does. Glad you enjoyed it anyway. Thanks for stopping by.

  4. Fascinating story, I had to go back and read each part.
    My only piece of advice, I find it hard to follow so much description. I tend to get overly descriptive as well.
    That being said: fantastic pacing and the atmosphere is both dark and suspenseful. Can’t wait to see what happens next.

  5. Great description and pacing! I’ll have to read through your previous entries and get all caught up! =D
