#8Sunday #SexySnippets #WeekendWritingWarriors: Jace VII

Happy Sunday, guys!

I'm writing this after falling asleep on the couch while watching a movie, so please forgive me for my scarce words and any errors. LOL Thank you, as always, for stopping by and leaving a comment. I appreciate it *hugs*

Last week, Jace had just found out he could escape through the back door when the front one opened...

*creative editing to keep to the guidelines has most definitely taken place*
#SexySnippets and #8Sunday Sentences  
  

Jace didn't bother to turn around to face his enemy. He jumped over the counter and raced past the old couple, barely  catching the old woman's good luck whisper as he skidded past her. Someone behind him shouted out for him to stop. He ignored it. More screams, footsteps, the sound of furniture tumbling to the floor. His hand wrapped around the brass pummel. Locked. He slammed his shoulder against it and stumbled outside. He didn't bother to give his eyes time to adjust to the gloomy darkness. He sprinted toward the line of trees in the distance, flinging off his clothes as he went and cursing his bad luck.

Why is Jace going naked in the middle of a hot-pursuit? Well... you'll have to wait until next Sunday to find out. *evil laugh*

  7. That's exactly what I wanted to know? Why is he going naked in the midst of pursuit? Could it be a woman on his trail, he's hoping will actually catch him?

    On a serious note, this reminds me of the dreams we have when someone is chasing us, and we wish we could become invisible, or just disappear. Great 8.

  8. Very tense scene, loved how I'm so intrigued as to whether he's a shifter of some sort, stripping his clothing off. Who is chasing him and why? Oh yes, I'm really hooked! One nit - pummel? I'm not familiar with the word used for a handle? I even went and googled it! But loved the excerpt!
