FREEVIEW FRIDAY {INSTINCT} #FVF

Welcome, welcome. It’s Freeview Friday time again–which means another sharing of snippets from my work.

As I have said before, any and all are welcome to join me in this weekly shenanigan. HOWEVER, if you do so, I URGE you to keep the shared snippets short and sweet. Mine will be a maximum of EIGHT (8) sentences. To help identification of these posts, I shall be hashtagging them (for Twitter purposes) as #FVF. Feel free to knick said hashtag for your own Freeview Friday posts.

And onward I go …

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you recall last week, we saw Sean taking control of the situation–okay, okay, we saw Sean snatch a hold of poor (ha!) Jem and smack his lips to hers. Moments later, his ‘plans’ are disturbed by Jem’s sister heading along the path toward them. This week’s snippet follows on as Jessica approaches, right after Sean has dared Jem to sneak off into the forest with him (naughty boy). From my newly released novella Instinct–A Holloway pack Prequel (told from Sean Holloway’s PoV):

When I reached the edge of the forest, I was certain I had lost—that she would not come—but she grasped bunches of her skirt and darted toward me just as her sister reached her vacated space.

I took her hand and led her beyond the first trees.

Giving chase, Jessica grasped Jem’s arm and stalled our flight. Her eyes pleaded with Jem when she turned back to her. “Mother said we mustn’t go into the forest. And certainly not with the likes of Mr Holloway.”

Poor Sean. He appears to have gained himself quite the reputation, eh? Wonder how that happened.

I hope you enjoyed the taste. Until next week ….
