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

8 sentences from my current WIP Bloodstone

 

She pulled the pan back and the door hinge creaked. Without another thought, Ebony swung the iron as hard as her small form would allow hoping to make contact with the intruders face. It connected with a sickening thump and she dropped the pan not expecting it to hurt when she hit him. The male form fell to the floor.
She flipped a switch and light flooded the kitchen. Broad shoulders slack against tile and his face had turned away from her toward the stove. Whoever the hell he was, Ebony intended to make sure he knew he’d just screwed up. Acting quickly she pushed a chair against the stove and grabbed some rope from under the sink.

Ouch! I don't think anyone would get away with messing with your-Ebony. Your poor male is going to be wishing he'd rung the doorbell and waited ;)

Suspenseful and intriguing.

Hugs and chocolate,
Shelly

I have this idea that it's someone she knows. Not that I'm sure, mind you.

Either way, he'll be sorry he didn't call first. ;o)

Interesting...I don't know why, but I feel sorry for the intruder.

Finally, a use for a pan that won't add calories.

Can't wait to see what happens next.

Moral of this story? Do NOT mess with Ebony. Though I'm waiting for it to turn out to be someone she knows. And can't wait for THAT conversation. LOL
