Welcome back, Sixers, to the last Sunday in October just in time for Halloween! It's so nice to see you again (or for the first time, be welcome!) and I really appreciate every comment you leave. They make my day. I hope you've been enjoying the snippets about The Goblin King and if you've missed any, please check out the SSS list below my followers in the right sidebar. Be sure to stop by the blogs of the other authors who participate in Six Sentence Sunday. There's a couple of new ones you might want to see: Sterling Priest writes erotica (just so you're prepared) and Tom Keller writes science fiction (taking place in Las Vegas. Yay!)
In this snippet, Tricia has learned she's not as human as she thought and she's not taking it well. Her reflection in the mirror showed long horns, longer canines, and a tail. Not exactly the epitome of beauty where she's from. Worse, her nails are now more like claws and that's just not right. Her fright has unlocked something within her and Jakran must calm her down before she reduces his home to rubble. She comes back to reality in his arms.
Tricia had leaned forward to inhale his scent when reality crashed into her and she realized she was crouched naked in front of a relative stranger. She raised her hands to push the king away but stopped when she saw blood seeping between her fingers.
What the –?
Agony shrieked across her awareness and she gasped, jerking backwards out of his grip onto her butt as she tried to unclench her fists. They opened with a sickening wet sound and she stared at them in horror as blood poured out of her palms and onto her thighs.“Oh my God!” she wailed, her panic igniting the energy to rattle against the valve she’d secured on its metaphorical hatch.
Fire in the hole! The Goblin King had better get her under control or he's going to be road-pizza. Thanks for stopping by and happy reading! :)
