Happy November 25th! Not only is it my birthday - I'm putting in a request for a cupcake that is more icing than cake - but it is also the Canadian Football League's Grey Cup. (Go, Stamps, Go!)
Six Sentence Sunday: Over the last few weeks, I've been highlighting some excerpts from my historical paranormal romance work-in-progress, Awakening A Witch. Click here to read earlier posts.
Set Up: I'm skipping ahead from the last excerpt. Alex decided to keep Mattie prisoner, but in the night she managed to escape - Alex's guards were too scared to try to stop a strange witch. She tried to return to her family, but she kept getting turned around in the woods and a fierce storm. Mattie had just accepted that her best option was to return to Alex - if she only could find her way back to him - when...
My Six (these are in Mattie's POV):
Illuminated by another strike of lightning, the approaching figure was immediately recognizable. He was cloaked in black, his face hidden under a hood, but Mattie knew it was Alex.
He'd chased her, and she'd been caught.
The tension and fear she'd been fighting for the past two hours broke, sending tremors through her body. She would be saved from the storm.
But who would rescue her from her rescuer?
