Six Sentence Sunday, October 7, 2012, #sixsunday

After a few weeks off it’s time to get back into the swing of things with Spinelli and Shannon.  In this scene, from my soon to be published novella, Cookies for Santa, Shannon is dealing with her kidnapper.


He wrapped his large strong hand around her tiny bicep and tugged her to a halt. His other hand held a handgun pointed in her direction, only inches from her face. Her heart beat out of control as she eyed the gun and the glass nail file still stuck in his arm. Blood dripped from the file. She wished for Spinelli. He would know what to do, and he would take care of her.

  1. Shannon is kidnapped! Love that she managed to get a nail file into his arm. Hurry up, Spinelli! … So glad you posted today, Val. 🙂

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Maddie. I see you are back this week as well.

  2. Silver James says:

    Welcome back, Valerie! I love a heroine who will stick up for herself but it sounds like she’s over her head! Where’s Spinelli, indeed!

    1. Shannon is pretty self-sufficient but Spinelli would be a welcome sight here! Thanks for stopping by, Silver.

  3. I love the image of the glass nail file still stuck in his arm — as if it’s of little consequence.

    1. It was the only weapon she had and it only phased him for a moment.

  4. Who is Spinelli and where is he!! lol I think Shannon can handle the situation. She just needs to believe it!

    1. Yes. She’s more capable than she thinks.
