It’s Wednesday, and despite the fact that it’s nearly Christmas, my writing is getting darker. Hot from my keyboard this week, I am sharing a snippet from the tale I’m currently working on… I’d love to hear your thoughts about this one! 😉
“Are you going to run, Molly?” His voice was calm, and almost amused as it questioned her.
She shifted her gaze to him at once, her face portraying her anxiety on the subject. “No,” she lied, her tone breathless.
“No?” He repeated back to her, that right brow arching in the tantalising way it did when he knew he was onto a winner.
“No,” she confirmed, shaking her head for good measure.
He put down the duffle bag, and moved towards her laughing. “You could run, you know,” he went on, his gaze intense as his tall body loomed over her.
Molly blinked up at her captor. “What?”
“You could run,” he affirmed. “If you wanted to? Your stories have always had an element of the cat and mouse about them, haven’t they, little one? I know you’d enjoy that, and you know I love the thrill of the chase.”
Adrenaline spiked in her body as he spoke. Was he giving her permission to flee from him?
“Yes,” he answered her, although she was certain she hadn’t spoken the words out loud. “You can run, Molly, but you know I’m going to chase you, and you know I’m going to catch you.”
Her heart was hammering in her chest as she arched her back, pinning her wide-eyed gaze onto him. “Why are you saying this?” she mumbled. And how do you know all of this?
His smile widened, and he pulled up a box from nearby, seating himself beside her. “After all this time, little one,” he purred. “Don’t you think I know you by now? I know what you’re thinking, Molly. You are quite literally an open book to me.”
She flushed, her head falling forward as though the admission was shameful. She was ashamed, because he was right. He did know her. He knew what she was going to be thinking, what she wanted, and just how to control her. It was bloody infuriating.
As this is the final #WIPItUp before the festivities, I’d like to wish you all a merry Christmas! Thanks for reading my blog, and here’s to a sizzling 2018…
