The Scalpel Six Sunday Snippet

Continuing from last week, these six come from my 2010 NanoWrimo project, a paranormal romance featuring reincarnation, magic, ancient entities and betrayal. And yes, there is love thrown in for good measure. 🙂

It was a scalpel, not a knife. He held a scalpel in his hand, pointed in her direction. She only noticed it as his hand began to shake, light glinting off the new steel. Oh goodie-it’s sterile. The non sequitur flitted through Siobhan’s mind at the same moment as she heard the whimper behind her.

Shit–the students.

  1. That’s a great question, Angela. I think that he wants to be talked out of it. He’s scared, but he’s also been pushed past his limits. There might be some intoxicant involved, but I haven’t decided that yet.

  2. Yikes! I like that you’re slowing down for this moment and focusing in on the scalpel. And a shaking one, that’s not good. But it’s also a nice hook, since now I’m wondering several things (which is good): Is he shaking because he’s really not wanting to do this and so there’s a possibility he won’t go through with it; or is it out of excitement, which would be really bad for Siobhan…
