After multiple weeks on the lighter side of Target Acquired, this week I’ve crossed over-to the darker side.
But, as you’ll see I couldn’t help myself-a touch of the light to start you off.
At the same time Nibs came bounding down to Maggie, further north at the Exmoor National Park another event, more horrifying started to unfold. A young man and his new, ten minutes old, fiancée were walking along the river when they spotted an abandoned campfire.
“Ian, I thought people couldn’t have fires here,” Aimee asked, as she looked at the blackened area partially hidden by rocks.
Ian, not wanting to show fear, stepped closer unaware Aimee was right behind him. Before he could warn her not to look she let out a scream.
Without thinking he turned back, arms outstretched in time to catch her as she fainted.

I see you post early too – good snippet – curious to know what they found. What a way to start an engagement 😀
Hum, maybe next week I’ll delve deeper into the darker side and show you what they found. 😉
What did they see? Oh, darn it! I gotta wait…. BUMMER! Really great way to hook, me here.
You’re right Kathleen, it’s all about the hook. It drives the story forward by making you want to see, feel, know, touch what’s around the corner. Or, in this case what’s in front of them.
Now we have to know what they saw! lol Great teaser.
hmm, okay, I have to be honest and say that the fainting female thing just seems overdone. Screaming yes. Running – useful.
If you saw what she saw, you might faint also.
Such a tease! What did they see?
Oh, the suspense!
I wanna know!!! Darn cliffhangers… 😉
Can you hold out until next Sunday?
who, or what was in the fire, I wonder
I’m guessing it was more than marshmallows on fire. Great six!
You might say that. But, me being me, I wouldn’t.
Oh, oh what did she see? Suspenseful six!
Let’s just say-it’s not the ether bunny.
Lindsay – I love your sense of humour !!! 🙂
Well, I could have said it ain’t the Birthday Donkey but since Easter’s a week away went with the logical.
well, I hope he can run while carrying her! 🙂 Nice six!
Who said anything about running Sandra?
Yikes! What did they see?
nice six and I like your website
Thank you for both.
As they, whoever ‘they’ are, say on TV-stay tuned for the next episode of Ian and Aimee.
Yep, I want to know what they see.
Cara and everyone else,
Are you really, really really sure?
Lot of mystery right off the bat. Really curious as to what they found.
Wow! I must know what they see!!!
I’m wondering what she saw in that fire.
Definitely some intrigue coming!
well…happy engagement, yo!
And it, the engagement, might even last a lifetime
Intriguing snippet and full of suspense!
Interesting snippet. Fainting, only engaged for ten minutes, the guy’s got his hands full.
And you only know the tiniest part of it. Wait. Things get better. Maybe.
Omigosh!! What on earth did she see??
Patience is a virtue. Or so I’m told. Oh, and it wasn’t earth that I can promise-I think
Love the suspense! Caught my attention, can’t wait till next week 🙂
Oh, scary! If it makes her faint, it’s not the sort of engagement present anyone wants! suspenseful six!
Who said anything about a present?
Oh, this is fun. My bet’s on gore, Lindsay.

Let’s just say it’s not marshmellows they found.
Oh my. Something wicked lurking in those pages. I like! Nice and intriguing six.
Hey, what did they see. So not fair. 🙂
Who says I’ve got to be fair? You might get the answer this Sunday
