Time for more Weekend Writing Warriors snippets. We post 8-10 sentences from one of our works every weekend.
Meet Han from the upcoming contemporary Sci-Fi thriller: Fire & Blood.
This was not the way he expected his career as a Navy SEAL to end.
The wind hit him at an odd angle. His foot slipped. When he fell, he’d expected the jerk that would stop his downward descent. Instead the cam pulled free and he plummeted downward.
The next cam held firm, but he was a two hundred and fifteen pound burden falling at a continually increasing rate. The carabiner didn’t hold. Somewhere between when he fell and the bottom, he managed to pull his head up. His body slammed into the rough ground on his left hip, shattering it into dust. He didn’t remember the landing.
He did remember waking up in the hospital a week later to a nightmare that would never end.
