If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

Five Sentence Friday

Okay, I admit it. Stop twisting my arm. I stole the sentence idea from some else. I saw it on Facebook and wanted to do something similar.
The idea is to post only a few sentences of something I'm working on as a teaser.
Besides I'm a writer and I want to share pieces and parts of what I do.

Here's my five sentences taken from Chapter 1 of my novel ~The Jade Coterie.

“You have a stow away in the back of your vehicle. Stay put, we’ll get her.”
 Ebony’s stomach turned and her heart stuttered. A man’s head came into view, a dark shadow against the back drop of sunlight.
“Miss, I’m gonna have to ask you to come with us.”
Ebony braced herself against the back of the metal, “If I refuse?”
“Then I’ll come in there and get you myself.”

 Share five sentences from one of your pieces in the comments or feel free to tell me what you think of mine.

Now I'm wondering if Ebony knew there was a stowaway--or if she's just surprised.

Great excerpt!
