Six Sentence Sundy - The Bone Flute - Cursed

Happy Six Sentence Sunday! Thank you so much for visiting and taking the time to read this week's snippet. I really appreciate your time and the comments you leave for me.

Today I'm offering a snippet from The Bone Flute, a paranormal romantic suspense. In this snippet, Marika Szep is the local witch in 1623 Hungary, and an angry mob incited by the headman's son, Horvath, is burning her alive in her cottage. Jozsef Kiraly, her erstwhile fiance, believed Horvath until he realizes something is wrong.


Flames crackled along the walls around her, but she kept holding on to her energy and her fury. The dry summer had made her cottage like tinder and the flames consumed the walls eagerly. Marika held on until the roof collapsed in on her.
She meant to aim the curse at Horváth, but when the hot fiery pain slammed into her, she released her curse, screaming, “JOZSEF!” before she knew no more.

****

Jozsef Király heard the scream from inside the burning cottage just before a blinding bolt of energy shot from the flames and slammed into him. He had a moment only to feel Marika’s betrayal and to realize he’d been duped before searing pain shot up through his body.

I'd say Jozsef learned pretty quickly not to mess with a witch. Too bad he died doing it. ;) There are several great authors on the Six Sentence Sunday list and a few of my favorites are Karla DoyleSarah BallanceSilver JamesZee Monodee, and Goran Zidar. Thank you for stopping by and happy reading! :)

  4. I'm cheering for her. It doesn't sound like Jozsef deserves her. :(
