Here are Six more sentences from my contemporary romance which is still under the working title "How Long Does it Take (to fall out of love)?" It is slated for publication September 22, 2012.
This scene takes place right after the second explosion at the plastics plant. The two friends, Liz and Veronica, were having lunch at a sidewalk cafe not too far away. They had just leapt to their feet to see what they could see after the first explosion. Then the second one occurred. Liz is the narrator:
My head grazed a table as I
fell. I sensed the concrete rushing up
to meet me, but there was no pain; instead, silence engulfed me like deep
water. Everything slowed. After a moment, I became aware that my knees
were bleeding inside my new white Capri’s; spackles of blood were seeping through. That’s when I spotted Ronnie crawling across the blistered sidewalk
toward me. Her face was dotted with red
like a Botox-party nightmare.
