It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged or done the Hump Day Hook. But I’m glad to be back.
My ‘back in the saddle’ hook, is a suspense one from my upcoming 2015 release, The Joke.
Jeremy’s laughter filled the truck and melted Emilee’s sadness into a pool of lust. Before she could say anything the air vibrated with a loud pop and the truck lurched to the side of the road grinding to a halt. She looked over at Jeremy as the windshield exploded into a million shards of glass spraying her and Jeremy as the second shot filled the silence.
“What the hell,” Jeremy muttered pulled her him.
A thick lump formed in her throat blocking the air flow and making impossible for her talk. She knew the cause – fear. The memories of helplessness she’d felt as a child flooded her sparking anger. She punched Jeremy’s chest.
“He’s back,” she whispered. It was all she could manage at this moment. She focused on small flickers of anger letting the flames of burning emotion consume the iciness of the fear.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the Hump Day Hooks.
