Sample Sunday 27


Here is approximately 100 – 150 words from a randomly selected original piece for your enjoyment.

Eternal Curse: Battleground chapter 4 (wip)

I approached the man trying to distract him, which I did, but not in the way I’d planned. When the gunman noticed me walking towards him, he became startled at my appearance. He turned and fired his gun without even looking. The young couple took the opportunity to run away in the opposite direction. The gunman fired twice; one shot hit the viewing portal of a transport parked next the curb and the other shot hit me. I hadn’t been shot in over seventy-five years. I’d forgotten how it felt. The bullet sped through the air making contact with my skin, causing it to stretch and bruise. The shot was fired close enough that when the bullet finally stopped, it lay rested in an indentation on my arm.

Thank you for taking the time to read this post. If you like it let me know and share it with others. See you next time, Toi Thomas. #thetoiboxofwords
