Thank you for checking out my little snippets each week! I appreciate it :) This one comes from my soon-to-be-released novel, Halos: Somnium, out December 16th! In this scene, Allie is being chased through an open field by something massive. She doesn't know what follows her. It catches up. She trips, falls to the ground and lies cloaked in the grass, waiting with her eyes closed.
I can hear it taking in my smell, savoring the scent of its spoils. A whimper escapes me. It's breath is hot and oddly sweet-smelling, just short of my face. I open my mouth to scream and feel a rigid hand against my lips.
"Shh..." he whispers. "Don't move."
