Welcome back! I've been hard at work this weekend, trying to keep my word count up. My region is having a slumber party next weekend, and since I'm free from clinical duties, I might actually go this year. I'll have to make an effort to go to at least one write-in before then, though, so I don't seem to randomly show up.
Bit of mystery in this week's post. You don't get to know who the characters are :)
"Good girl," the man said harshly. "All I want is your wallet, phone, and that pretty necklace you have around your neck."
Nodding, she mumbled against the hand. The hand tightened over her mouth, killing the sound in her throat, and his voice sounded in her ear again. "If you scream, I will make you pay," he warned before sliding the hand down from her mouth to lock his arm across her shoulders.
She swallowed harshly and fought the hysteria bubbling up in her throat.
I will tell you that this mugging is no coincidence, and that something taken from her will play a significant role in the story. Any ideas?
