It's that time again! Big thanks to those of you who've been so kind to stop by my previous Six Sentence Sunday posts and leave comments. It's my pleasure to return the favor and visit your blogs as well!
This week's post is excerpted from the last part of my complete YA novel "You Again". At this point in the story, Layla is taken captive by the reincarnated version of the evil-doer who destroyed the life she and Lucas had built together in their past life. He's not giving up, and she's not giving in, and the reader is left to wonder if all is lost.
Pain sliced through my skull as he grabbed me by the hair, wrenching my head against his chest until his arm came around me in a headlock. I struggled, flailing wildly against him while he pulled me further into the surf. The freezing water now up to my chest, my clothes pulled against me like quicksand.
Something caught my eye. A blur, as if something was moving far up the beach toward the parking area. If someone was there, all I needed was a distraction, a split second to get out of his hold and run screaming toward the movement.
