#8Sunday #SexySnippets #WeekendWritingWarriors: Jace II

Happy Sunday, darlings!

My creativity has been bouncing around indecisively for the past few days, but I managed to write a little more on Jace's story. Today, I'm continuing with Jace as he goes into town. 

This is totally unedited, still untitled and still in its baby stages. Hope you like it, and as always, thank you for taking the time to stop by, share and leave a comment. *hugs*

#SexySnippets and #8Sunday Sentences  
  
Jace slowed down his bike as he reached the edge of town. It was barred by a thick fence. The hairs on the back of his neck stood. He stopped his bike and waited for someone to come out of the guard box. After some time, he ventured through. More forest land surrounded the area but as he moved closer into town an unpleasant smell seemed to permeate the air. Jace wrinkled his nose and picked up the speed eager to find some form of civilization in these desolate lands
lands.

"Oh, Beatrice, where the hell are you?"

  6. You mention a guard. We should see a brief exchange. It's like Chekhov saying if you show a gun, better do something with it. Small comment. Otherwise you paint an ominous scenario and yet he moves on looking for her. Terrific eight!

    1. Thank you, Charmaine! And thanks for the suggestion about the guard. The guard is not really there, though, only the empty box.

  10. Very visual. And what is that smell??? :-) I love the last line. It could be the very first line of the book--you could launch an entire story with a line like that. Well done! :-)
