Six Sentence Sunday 8-12 Almost An Outlaw


Today I'm celebrating the Hell On Wheels Season 2 premiere tonight and posting a Western clip. This is from my book, Almost an Outlaw. It is in the villain's POV as he is captured by the hero, and in outlaw lingo, going for a ride meant you'd wouldn't be coming back. ;)

“Turn around slowly,” the captain ordered and Wallace did as he was told. He looked past the short barrel of the shotgun into Cade’s deadly gray eyes, the color of the winter sky and just as cold. For the first time, apprehension crawled up Wallace’s spine. “You taking me to the sheriff?”

With an impassive shake of his head, Cade replied, “You’re going for a ride. Put your hands behind your back. 

Thanks for stopping by! You can find other writers at www.sixsunday.com. Some snippets are suitable for adults only. And check out Hell on Wheels tonight! You'll love the outlaw.

That sounds ominous all right! Wouldn't want to stare down Cade's gun barrel myself. Great, chilling scene.

Oh no, sounds deadly. You have me very curious about this story. Why does the captain want to kill him and how does he get away? Nicely done!

Veronica Scott said...

Sounds like there's a LOT of backstory between them - very chilling excerpt - terrific!
