Six Sentence Sunday

Merry Christmas everyone! I’m continuing my excerpt between Emily and Riley from my novel Bonded in Exile. Glad you’re enjoying it 🙂

The grip on Emily’s throat tighened and everything mercifully faded to black. Suddenly, the front door slammed open, an awareness echoed somewhere in her mind. The thundering pulse in her ears rendered her nearly deaf to the vicious roar filling the cabin. Abruptly, the grip on her throat released, and she dropped to her knees, sucking in giant gulps of air; her throat burned with fire as she dropped down on all fours, her palm pressed to the floor for balance.

  6. That was close! I wonder if he would have really killed her. Hope she wakes up enough so we can see the fight!

  7. Powerful six. He certainly knows how to make an entrance (even if it’s not all his doing, lol.)

  9. There’s a lot of good detail here, but I’m not quite sure what it adds up to. I was wondering if the air was literally being sucked out of the room, but that depends on what kind of story it is. Thanks for sharing, though!

    I missed the list deadline for this week, but I did get six sentences up! http://kelworthfiles.wordpress.com/2011/12/18/six-sentence-sunday-more-from-children/
