Hey everyone! I took last Sunday off for Easter, but this week I’m picking up shortly after my last #sixsunday. I’m currently querying this story (the name keeps changing, ugh. Surrender? Shrapnel?). Dylan–a teen with psychic abilities–has just broken the rules by going outside at night, where she hears someone calling her name.

Despite the shadows, I know a slow smile of approval spreads across his face and it makes my breathing ragged. I see him with my eyes, but also in my head. I can’t look away. I can’t shut him out. I can’t even move or speak.

“Dylanie,” he drawls, “let me in.”

I’d love to know your reaction! As always, thanks for stopping by and please be sure to check out some of the other Six Sunday participants. Some of my favorites are Angela Quarles and J.M. Blackman.
