Weekend Writing Warriors (WeWriWa) was inspired by Six Sentence Sunday. For the WeWriWa challenge, you post eight sentences. You can find more info here.
My eight sentences are from a YA novel I’ve been working on of and on called Gone.
The darkness was starting to fade to a dirty grey, broken up in places by the buzzing orange glow of the streetlights. Ankle-deep snow sifted around my feet as I shuffled down the road.
The first half of my walk passed in a cold hum, all my senses on autopilot as I stared at my shoes. But then I heard something. Something loud enough to pull me out of my daze. A foot scraping across the sanded surface of the street.
Ice balled in my stomach, but not from coldness. From fear.
