Six Sentence Sunday

Well, it's that time again. For those of you who enjoyed last week's six, you may find this intriguing as well. It doesn't pick up from the exact place I left off, but in the same chapter. My trio's little world just turned upside down and they are in for an even ruder awakening.

~ I take slow breaths, in and out, force the visions to the back of my brain and open my eyes into this strange, dark place. Brad helps me to my feet and holds onto my hand, steadying me. There is no moon, there are no stars above our heads, no street lights, nothing but darkness. Our flashlights—providing the only light that can be seen—lie on the ground, shining on something approaching. What I see doesn’t make any sense; the beings before us must be remnants of the visions I’ve experienced. But I see the panic on Brad and Brit’s faces and know the beings are real. ~

  5. Very intriguing. I love the "visual" of strange beings approaching in the scant lights of the flashlights. Great Six!

  13. ...if the flashlights are on the ground, they wouldn't illuminate very far up, so how much of the beings can they actually see?
