Welcome to Six-Sentence Sunday!
I’ll highlight another excerpt from my upcoming horror novella, SOMETHING BLACK…
This week, we catch up with an ex-soldier named Rafe after he wakes up in a wrecked bus in the middle of a rain-drenched highway, with little knowledge of how he got there. While a fellow survivor (a cop name Bishop) goes off to search for help, Rafe stays with a dying woman to protect her, as both he and Bishop know something stalks them from the graveyard of cars surrounding the bus. Eventually, after Rafe is forced out of the bus on his own, he finds out what’s been hunting them…
He looked back the way he came, and he saw it…saw them.
Massive lupine shapes, the size of lions, or bigger. They amassed on the overpass, and moved towards the bus.
There were several of the creatures, but it was difficult to see them through the pounding rain and due to their unstable forms. They seemed to be little more than dark silhouettes, without true definition or detail.
Their eyes opened, two pairs, then five, then six, icy white blades trained on his position.
