It’s gonna be short and sweet today…hell’n I have no idea where the time went this week LOL!
Never even made my goal of readin’ a complete fic to rec for you *poutyface!*
However, this new WIP by fyrebirch, the amazin’ author who gave us Sharp Left Turn, sure had me sittin’ up straight and payin’ attention! Of course, it didn’t hurt she’s writin’ a western, which I love love love!!!
See what you think!
So, what would turn a seventeen-year-old boy into a stone cold killer?
Feeling rage like never before I land on top of him, pounding fist after fist in his face.
I’m so lost that I don’t even recollect when he dropped his gun or that he could’ve shot me too.
When I come out of my haze, he’s a bloody heap before me, coughing and sputtering. But that doesn’t stop his red-coated teeth from shining in a slimy smile. “Somehow I managed to underestimate the youngest Cullen.” He laughs like a lunatic.
“Go on, boy. Finish what ya started.”
I grab his shirt between my fists and snatch him up and slam him back into the ground. “I ain’t no killer!”
His eyes cut to my ma’s dead body lying bout a foot away.
“Sure ya are, son. Look what I done gone and done. I killed ya Ma and Pa. Don’t ya want some revenge?” he taunts. “I’ll be a dead man anyway when the boss finds out. Finish me, boy!” He grips my arms as hard as he can and bores into me with his eyes. “Do it,” he grits.
I want to. I wanna kill him so bad, but one thing keeps me from conceding. “The boss?” I question. “Someone sent ya here?”
His head falls back and a maniacal laugh escapes. Blood sputters from his mouth, as he can’t seem to contain himself.
When he finally reins it in, though, his eyes are piercing. “Ya sure ya want in that can of worms, son?”
“Stop callin’ me, son!” I order. “Who is it? Who sent ya here?”
His breaths are now coming in short pants. “If I give ya that information, ya gone put me outta my misery?”
I ponder that thought for a minute. Can I do it? Can I kill this man who done came here and tore my life apart? It don’t take but two seconds to answer those questions.
I sure as hell can.
With a nod, I say, “Deal.”
Yup! That would do it!
Oooh, I do love a good western…oh, I already said that *gigglesnort!*
