Welcome back to another Eight Sentence Sunday! Please also check out the other Snippet Sunday folks and the Weekend Writing Warriors. Something for everyone from these talented writers!
This scene takes place the same day as the last few weeks' excerpts. JoJo is startled awake by tapping on her bedroom window in the middle of the night.
I don’t remember walking to the window. I just know I was there in half a second. I opened it and could see Sam’s silhouette in the moonlight.
“What happened, Sam? Are you okay?”
“Can you unlatch the screen and try to pull me up?”
My earlier terror returned, because I knew there was only one reason Sam would even consider doing such a thing—Russ had to be drunk again. I unhooked the screen and swung it out, hoping Sam had gotten away before Russ could hurt him anymore.
More details next week, so be sure to come back! :-)
Shades of Blue is still a WIP, but you can buy my other books here.
