Thanks to great groups like Weekend Writing Warriors and Sunday Snippet, the weekend has become the perfect opportunity for writers to get together and show off samples of thier writing.
This week, my snippet is from a gothicy historical project I've recently started working on.
Rachel did the natural thing. She screamed.
The sound barely slipped past her lips, when a strong hand clamped across her lower face, the pressure grinding her lips against her teeth. His foot banged against her ankles, sweeping her feet off the ground. He followed her fall, forcing her forward off her knees and onto her stomach. His knees pressed into her back, pinning her to the rain slick grass and making it impossible to draw a breath, as he replaced his hand with a foul tasting gag. A second later her arms were pulled together, several loops of tightly knotted rope connecting her wrists. Her captor stood and yanked her to her feet before picking her up and tossing her over his shoulder, knocking the wind out of her.
Thanks for stopping by!
