As part of the Weekend Writing Warriors and Snippet Sunday groups, I’m posting very short excerpts from my writings.
Today’s snippet is a continuation of last week’s and is from the opening of my Western romantic suspense book, WYOMING ESCAPE. Hope you enjoy it.
She’d been coming to these woods outside Providence for the past two years, and never having heard of any problem, felt safe enough to run alone in the quiet and solitude. Now some idiot had decided to play games with a gun?
No further shots disturbed the forest and the birds began to chirp. Mikela took a tentative step from her hiding spot. At the sound of heavy footsteps pounding toward her, she jumped back into the greenery.
A slim man in a leather jacket ran into view, headed toward the parking area. He looked somewhat familiar and her shoulders relaxed until she caught sight of his glazed, panicked expression.
And the black nine millimeter pistol in his hand.

Terrific mystery in her believing him to be familiar and sensing his apprehension.
Hmmmm….if the dude with the black 9 mm had a panicked expression, he must have been the pursued, rather than the pursurer.
The plot thickens!
Kudos for a nice snippet!
Thanks Ryan & FC. Appreciate you stopping by.
He looks familiar? Who? Whooooo ?! 🙂
