Hello! Another week has flown by and it's time for another snippet of The Phantom Student which will be published in October. Last week, the scene was one in which the new kid, Derol Pavey, is being taunted at lunch. This week picks up a little later, after Derol has disappeared from school because of a second incident of bullying. Jase and Stevie think he might be hiding in the abandoned school, so they go there in search of him:
The door closed behind us soundlessly.We were standing in a short, dark, hallway. The sunlight from the high transom windows was very muted, almost nonexistent. We stood perfectly still, letting our eyes adjust to the gloom. The pounding of my frightened heart sounded very loud in the stillness. I wondered if Jase could hear it. Placing my hand on my chest, I took slow, deep breaths in an effort to calm the pounding.
That's all for now...tune in next week for another snippet. Thanks ~ here is the link to the other authors participating in Six Sentence Sunday: http://www.sixsunday.com/
