Six Sentence Sunday-7

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.

  2. Lindsay says:

    Hum, maybe next week I’ll delve deeper into the darker side and show you what they found. 😉

  3. What did they see? Oh, darn it! I gotta wait…. BUMMER! Really great way to hook, me here.

  4. Lindsay says:

    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.

  5. Cate Masters says:

  6. Marie Dees says:

    hmm, okay, I have to be honest and say that the fainting female thing just seems overdone. Screaming yes. Running – useful.
