Happy Halloween Month!
I decided to do another snippet from a WIP featuring Darlene. She hopes a passing motorist would offer help getting her car started. She and Tommy Ray are walking down the deserted road into town for help when a weird guy in a rusty truck stops and warns them about what is ahead.
“This here ain’t the road to
Tupelo.” He shifted gears
in the old rattletrap. “It’s the road to hell."
I stuck my middle finger in the air as he drove away, smoke rolling out of the truck's tailpipe. "You need to take your bug-eyed, lunatic self to the insane asylum at Whitfield," I shouted.
"Darlene, if this is the road to hell, maybe we best turn around," Tommy Ray said.
Hope everyone is having a great fall day! You can find more Six Sentence Sunday authors at www.sixsunday.com (Some snippets are suitable for adults only.)
