Happy Sunday! Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors, where several authors join together to share 8 to 10 sentences of a current work-in-progress or recently published book.
My snippet today comes from my WIP currently titled Love Spell.
A noise in the house caught his attention. He stopped and listened but all he heard was the sound of the wind whistling against the windows. He took a deep breath and tried to concentrate but his only focus was the prickling of his skin. That strange sensation of electricity in the air was back again. Feeling a little spooked, he decided to check on Abigail to make sure she was okay.
The wind seemed unusually loud, howling around him and filling his ears. Something wasn’t right. The sensation overwhelmed him and hurried his footsteps toward Abigail’s bedroom. When he opened the door, his fears were confirmed.
“Abigail?” he whispered into the eerie glow of the night light.

Lovely tension building, Stephanie. I am moving closer to the edge of my seat. I can’t wait to find out what is in the air… other than an electrical storm!
Dynamite suspension and oh so spooky. Good Job. Your writing is lovely.
This had a wonderfully suspenseful, creepy feel to it!

Wow! I’m almost creeped out. 🙂 Great set up. And tension, oh my. What is in Abigail’s bedroom?

Great snippet! I was right there with him, feeling a bit creeped out.
Creepy and great tension building. Enjoyed the snippet.
I sure hope Abigail isn’t his daughter. That would make this scene even scarier.
There is something very wrong there. Love the use of the senses to amp up the tension!
That’s one hell of a cliffhanger! Must read more! You did a wonderful job setting the scene, Stephanie! 🙂
Wonderfully spooky scene–great use of the senses to draw in the reader. 🙂
