Six Sentence Sunday Post #3 ~ "Halo"
Setting The Scene: Our Heroine, Claire Benedict, has just been out in a pre-dawn run, trying to clear her head of the disturbing images and thoughts created by strange dark dreams. Her ex-lover Peter is weighing in her thoughts also, as he is heavily indicated as being involved in the homicide case she currently investingating. As if conjured by her worries, Peter appears at her doorstep. Their dicussion is heated, accusatory and even more cryptic than her dreams.
"What are you doing, Peter?" Claire struggled in his firm embrace, unable to break free.
"Making you ready for what's to come." His mouth covered hers in a fierce kiss that stifled her scream. The blade that entered her heart was two-fold, betrayal and steel. As she slipped from his grasp, her blood spilling from her chest onto the dew covered grass, Claire wasn't sure which hurt more.
