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 6-23-



Catch up: Ebony found an intruder in her home, 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 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...  He asked what was wrong with her--

8 sentences from Bloodstone


“A lot, but that has little to do with the situation. What are you doing in my house?” Ebony slid her bare feet under the bar on her seat. She wasn’t scared. She bound him good and tight he wouldn’t go an inch unless Ebony allowed it. But she’d keep her eye on him just in case.

The man didn’t blink. “Let me go.”

He's not giving up his answers easily! Love it. :)

Linda said...

Damn! He is really something.

sassyspeaks said...

That was quick - why should she let him to?

Again, suspense builds just as it must. Good eight.

Joanne Stewart said...

Oh, you've got me with this one. I'm dying to see this one play out. Brilliant. :)

Interesting scene and definitely immense changes from the previous version.

Nicely done, makes me want to see what happens next.

Elaine Cantrell said...

I love this girl. Nice 8 that's made me curious about who she has tied up.

Owllady said...

I kind of like him too. He's not cussing her out or otherwise acting like a trapped animal, the way I'd expect a common burglar to. So now I want to know what's going on with him!

gemma parkes said...

Tell her who you are Mr.! Got to admire Ebony's determination to keep him still!

Ute Carbone said...

I love a girl who's not afraid to use a frying pan and rope, LOL. Nice 8!

Cheers Hilary

Well done, Summer. Very engaging ....

Djedra said...

Nice, lively dialogue!

stevie-carroll said...

Ebony's still determined there.

Isabella Leigh said...

ROFL I like Ebony more with every snippet I read. This girl is FEISTY! I wonder if she's ever going to get her answers - or if he's going to end up giving himself a concussion trying to get away.

I heart comments~~ You all Rock my world!
