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

WWW 6-16

 

Catch up: Ebony found an intruder in her home, snuck to the kitchen in the dark- retrieved her cast iron pan from above the stove, and hit him over the head with it when he came to the kitchen. He passed out. She moved a chair to the stove slipped a rope around the pan and hung it above the chair, slip knotting where his hands would go. Then struggled getting him upright into the chair, tied his wrists making sure that 'if' he lifted his wrist to come for her the pan would swing down and hit him again- of his own doing... The man woke up, hit himself after she told him not to move...

 8 sentences from Bloodstone


“I told you not to move.” Ebony pulled the second chair to her small kitchen table over and sat with her legs spread around the back resting her head on her hands. Aside from the red welt on his forehead, the guy didn’t look half-bad. His jaw had a stark line, but he was clean-shaven. His eyes fluttered open into an icy blue glare with dark messy bangs hanging just below his brow. He wore all black clothes. Clothes for a thief. Well she wouldn’t have it.
“What’s wrong with you?” His voice came out low and guttural.

Poor man! I have a feeling all is not as it seems to her!

Cara Bristol said...

No wonder his voice was "low and guttural," she damn near brained him. LOL. Enjoyed your snippet.

Elaine Cantrell said...

Interesting comment for one in his position.

Um, you broke into my house! But, I can kind of see his point, lol. :) Looking forward to the rest of this conversation.

What's wrong with HIM? LOL I'm dying to know who he is and why he's there. You paint a vivid picture, Summer. :-)

Great description. You pulled into the kitchen. And what's wrong with you is outrageous. Super eight.

Joanne Stewart said...

Ohhh, something tells me this is a huge misunderstanding and I'm dying to find out who he is. And I ADORE that not only did she hit him with the frying pan in the first, but she set him up to hit himself again. lol Fabulous!

I love that she's just sitting there checking him out and his question is fabulous. I can't wait to read more.

Wow, she's one inventive and dangerous lady! Impressive set-up she did.
Wonder if he was somehow invited there, and she didn't know or forgot... he seems pretty indignant for a thief.

Evelyn Jules said...

Hee! This is great, Summer! I love when cookware comes in handy. ;) Can't wait for more!

Well he knows not to mess with her. She can take care of herself. But wonder what he'll say next?

A.S. Fenichel said...

This is such a tease. Who is she? Why did she create such an elaborate rig to whack him in the head? I have questions. See you next week. LOL

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Summer .. why's he in black - I ask myself? Then why's she interviewing him .. interrogating him .. what's coming next?!

Fun .. cheers Hilary
