Six Sentence Sunday + 1-8

As you can ascertain from the title, I’ve incorporated Six Sentence Sunday with Suspenseful Seven Sentence Sunday. But, I’ve even gone one step further. When you read the 6+1 you’ll see that I’ve left you hanging again. Being the nice person I am (not) I’ve given you the next sentence, number 8. For that one, the key to this scene you’ll have to go below my ‘Shameless Promo’ to read it.

Recap of last week-Ian and Aimee were walking along a river when they spied what they thought was a campfire. On further investigation, it turned out to be something much worse, causing her to faint.

So without further procrastinating: 

As he gently laid her down, he looked over his shoulder. Instantly he recognized the burnt object. A body, burned beyond recognition.

He turned his attention back to Aimee, her skin icy cold and pale. So focused on her he never heard the rustling of leaves. The snap of a twig barely registered in his consciousness.

A cough from behind drew his attention to a man standing five feet from him. Ian slowly rose to his feet, then froze.

He never felt the bullet tear through his skull.
