Six Sentence Sunday

This week is still continuing an excerpt from Bonded in Exile. Hope you’re enjoying it! Thanks for reading and posting your comments 🙂

“Silas,” Emily called after him, her voice hoarse, her throat, painfully raw. She took a step after him and came down on her lacerated heel, sending a sharp, burning pain racing up her leg–she yelped. Now that caught his attention, Silas froze mid-step and spun back around to face her. His eyes glowed like two purple fireflies in the darkness. His chest heaved with each breath—steam billowed from his nostrils like an enraged bull as he limped back into the cabin. “You’re bleeding,” they both said at the same time.
