Since I currently have a few small works posted to Wattpad, I am going to start there with my snippets and give you all a peek at those before moving onto sharing bits and pieces of current WiP novel.
This week’s snippet comes from the same small, short horror piece I have posted to Wattpad titled The Black Lake. I’m skipping ahead a little bit from where I left off last week. Side bit, it is still in the dream.
I tried to cover my mouth with my hand before any sound escaped my lips alerting the man of an unwanted watcher.
But is was too late.
The man dropped the woman’s legs to the rotting dock with a sickening thud and looked up straight into my eyes. I froze in terror at being discovered and thought that I would be next to end up dead and thrown into the black lake along with the woman lying lifeless on the dock. His eyes were like bottomless pits that looked right through as if he could see my thoughts and my soul. My heart pounded in my ears, and my vision blurred as I swayed slightly on my feet threatening to pass out at any second. I could have sworn that the man saw the beating of my heart and wanted to snuff the life from it with the look that he gave me. The piercing gaze that he gave me froze my blood in my veins like ice, impairing me from moving the slightest muscle an inch.
He took one heavy step toward me and I became unglued, the ice in my blood thawed as adrenaline rushed through me and I turned on my heel to flee into the cover of darkness. . .
If you want to read the whole story, it is available to read on Wattpad! I love to hear any and all feedback on my work as well.
