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- 6-9-2013


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...

8 sentences from Bloodstone



Satisfied she pushed his head back and opened one eyelid. His eye responded, Ebony took that as a good sign. The man groaned and she shot back out of his reach.
“Don’t move. You won’t like the outcome,” Ebony said.
“What the…” His head rolled as he looked down at his tied wrists. She watched his hands come up. He struggled and the pan came down slamming into his face. “Fuck!”

Oh, I was a bit confused last week.
She warned him and he still did it, the pan might not be heavy enough though.

Ouch! I knew that was going to happen and it was fascinating to read. His reaction is perfect, lol.

Ouch! Hopefully, next time he wakes (if this knocked him out again) he'll listen to her warning.

Hmm, wonder who he is. Nice job!

Debbie said...

Ouch! She's pretty clever for thinking to set up the pan that way. Hope he's smart enough to realize what's happening and doesn't give himself a concussion. Interesting story and I can't wait to find out who this man is.

Definitely want to know who this stranger is - obviously she doesn't know/recognize him. His reaction upon waking rings true. Great snippet.
