I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day with food and family.
I'm continuing with a few more lines from In the Arms of a Stranger. Last week had my hero searching for the woman he thinks he hit with his car which is now wrecked in a creek bed, only to realize there's a child involved. It's the proverbial dark and stormy night:
He jogged through puddles to the rear driver’s side of the Jeep, jerked open the door, and peered inside. The dome light revealed a child, a boy, in the back, safe in his car seat.
Relieved, JP turned, looking for the woman in the dark. “Where are you?” he shouted.
Lightning speared the night and he saw her prone on the ground, just beyond the front left bumper of her Jeep. He hoisted his pack onto his back and rushed to her side as thunder boomed around them.
As usual, I had a hard time picking just six lines that made some sort of sense given last week's six. How do you choose?
