Happy #8Sunday

This week I have been totally immersed in editing my werewolf story (starring my new favourite character, Lex). This snippet is from the beginning of the story, where we see Dr. King and Price. Dr. King has been infected by their discovery and they have both just witnessed their intern succumb to the violent symptoms.

Saara-Jean dropped to her knees, her shoulders shaking when she found no pulse.

“John, don’t let this virus get out. And please, take care of Hero,” Saara-Jean thought of her sweet chocolate lab as the first of the cramps rocked her body.

“Saara, oh Saara. I’ll take care of him, I promise.”

Saara injected the needle into her side, not wanting to be awake for the last of the symptoms to pull her into oblivion.

John watched his colleague and friend sink to the ground, blood starting to pour from her nose. Her body spasmed a few times and was still the moment before he heard helicopter blades.

John clutched his bag and computer to him standing beside the helicopter. Men in hazmat suits came out with two black body bags and sealed a container with their discovery in it. The helicopter lifted and John stared at the shrinking research camp, his brain frozen at the implications of what they had unearthed in Siberia.

Happy #8Sunday

First post in the new year and I am so glad that it gets to be part of #8sunday by weekend writing warriors. I’m still working on some stories with Lex, trying to improve dialogue in general, so have included a piece about her. In it,  Lex has found out that werewolf hunts have been legalized and goes in for her first day back at work since finding out.

“Lex! Good to see you, hope everything with your family turned out ok?” Bobby, my boss, was a harmless sweet guy and I nodded, smiling.

“Yeah, thanks for giving me the time off to get that sorted,” I said, walking behind the desk and away from any curious follow up questions.

“Good, good, so a few things have been added to the info chat we have with hunters,” Bobby hiked his khakis up and slid his bright brochure towards me.

“Lotsa people in here asking about werewolves, even just the curious ones, so we went ahead and made that up. My idea,” Bobby grinned and I forced a smile, knowing the right answer was to be impressed.

“Wow, looks like you’ve covered lots. I’ll make sure to use this,” I said, looking through the three-page booklet.

Every time I had to hand out that book, with its bright, cheery message of the best and safest ways to spot and kill a werewolf, I ground my teeth, using every last ounce of willpower not to shred the papers, and then the tourists ‘ necks.
