By request, this week’s six picks up almost directly after last week’s excerpt. 😉
Then I sprinted down the hall and out the rear exit, skittering through gravel. Sunlight cost me my vision long enough I heard my sister’s pained cry before I saw her.
Maddie knelt beside Clayton, who sagged against the brick wall opposite the door he’d torn from its hinges to reach my sister. Her pale hands were stained red, and his right wing hung from his shoulder in tatters. Blood pooled at his hip. His black eyes shone with feral intensity, but each stroke of her hand down his cheek lulled his heaving chest into a more even rhythm.

Lovely. *drumming fingers impatiently, waiting for the rest*
LOL I should have the rest ready by Monday. I'm combing through now to make sure the new opening chapters don't contradict anything later in the book. 😉

powerful, evocative and sweet at the same time 🙂
Gem Sivad says
Oh, his right wing is damaged. I want to know how this happened and a lot more about Maddie, Clayton, and the narrator.
Ouch and Yikes. Lots of drama and action in so few sentences. I hope they are war wounds and not "being stupid and got in an accident" wounds.
