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.
I am still posting snippets from Gargoyle Hunt, Book 3 of Secret Supers.
Danger is the last thing on Estelle’s mind when she visits the University of Oxenford for a summer course. But, mysterious thefts and shadowy figures spur her into action. With Toby five thousand miles away, Estelle and her winged horse must hunt for the culprits alone. Soon they are embroiled in a mixed bag of aliens and ancient magic. Toby’s unexpected arrival throws her into turmoil and spurs events into a climax.
Toby is in London where he has been followed. He walked into an ambush. See last week’s snippet –
Final sentence last week: A large black bird swooped on his attacker, beating its wings at the man’s head and stabbing its cruel beak at his eyes.
(Excuse the slightly creative punctuation)
The mugger staggered aside, flinging up an arm to protect his face. He fired into the sky, missing the swift raven by an arm’s length.
Footsteps thudded toward Toby’s back; he spun on his toes.
Four men rushed him.
Outnumbered, but not outclassed, Toby darted forward. His fist pounded the chest of the foremost attacker, knocking him aside. Dodging the bludgeon swung by the second man, he grabbed a hairy arm and yanked the thug at the gun-wielding goon at his back. They crashed to the ground.
Four down; two to go.
A hazy streak shot past; a man screamed.
