Estelle wakes - Snippet for #WeWriWa from Super Starrella #Superhero Romance

Welcome to another Sunday with Weekend Writing Warriors. Here, writers in different genres showcase their stories with 8-10 sentences. Join the fun and read our snippets.
Today, I’ll continue the scene from my new release, Super Starrella. Seventeen year old Estelle’s quiet summer at her uncle’s farm becomes weird shortly after her second meeting with the hunky biker, Toby. In last week’s snippet, Estelle’s runaway horse hit an explosion and she was knocked out. You can read it here –
I’ll skip a chapter so you can learn what happens when she wakes.
(Snippet edited to fit)

Estelle woke. Surreal streamers of color swirled behind her eyelids; her head felt dizzy and her stiff body ached. Questions crawled into her mind. What had happened? Where was she? Who was she?
She cracked her eyes open; a white blur filled her field of vision. She tried to rub her eyes, but her hand was fastened at the wrist. Wriggling each part of her body, she discovered cold metal bands pinning her forehead, her arms and legs. Fear shivered through her tethered body and her mind whirled in confusion.

  1. Now that is really scary, Aurora! Excellent cliff hanger! I REALLY want to read more.

    1. Great! And I skipped the chapter with the creepy discussion about her.

  2. Definitely not how you want to wake up! Things are not looking too good for her. :(

  3. Well, that's not a good situation to be in. Holy smokes. Great cliffhanger.

  4. Uh-oh! That's not a good way to wake. Need more!

  5. I was totally freaking out for her, Aurora.

  6. Oh, that can't be good any way you look at it. But, teenagers are resilient; I imagine teenage superheros aren't much different than normal, well, except the 'superhero' thing. I hope her horse is OK!

  7. Waking up like that is the worst! Way to leave us hanging. :-)

  8. Oh dear, that's NOT good. The stakes are definitely amping up here. Great snippet!

  9. So many questions--wonder what the explosion was, who caused it, and why they used it to entrap her. Good cliffhanger, Aurora. ;-)

  10. Uh oh! Never like waking up strapped down like rarely turns out pleasant.

  11. Oh gosh., she needs to get the heck out of there. I hope she does. Great snippet.

  12. Sometimes, you know, you wake up and you just wish you could go right back to sleep again. ;-)

  13. Great job describing her confusion and everything that came with it. I really liked this snippet!
