Six Sentence Sunday

The beautiful blue sky turns black as smoke rises into the air. Mothers cry out for their children, husbands for their wives. A shrill scream comes from a child standing alone. Men and women both run for her, but they aren’t fast enough. I watch as the child is torn, limb-from-limb.

“Kate, shut up, please, just shut up,” Brit says, her voice trembling.

  2. Really? You have a child torn apart? Ugh.

  3. Haha, Heather. It sounds bad, but in context you'd understand what was really going on. And, yes, it's a dark novel. But, no, children aren't dying left and right.
