Welcome back to another wewriwa and the second week of March. On my side of the world, we had daylight savings or steal sleep as I call it. LOL. We had to move our clocks forward which means we’ll feel off kilter tomorrow with the “loss” of time. BUT on a good note I’ve got my 8 ready 🙂 Last week Kyele and Arak were on the roof about to enter a Marenian facility where they hope to rescue Lindsey. If you like sneak peeks of authors work in progress feel free to hop along with the blog www.wewriwa.com.
Arak worked quietly but efficiently as he unscrewed the bolts in the steel panel mounted to the roof then slid the heavy weight to the side and eased through the narrow opening. He hooked his ankles for support on an overhead rail pipe mounted to the ceiling. A slight adjustment as he bent from the waist and Arak slid the panel back in place before flipping to land several feet below on silent feet then crept down the hall, keeping his back to the wall.
Arak reached the first door and twisted the handle. His gloved hand muffled the slight creak when the jam separated from the wood frame. He stiffened when he heard a muffled thump from inside and dropped to a crouch. Arak pushed the door open all the way and rolled into the interior aiming for the wall to his left. A laser blast hit the wall above where his head had been spewing chunks of rock all over him.
Alright savvy authors, I have a question. The last line of the 1st paragraph feels awkward and I need to know if its me or if there’s a better way to say this part…”before flipping to land several feet below on silent feet.” It’s saying the word feet so close together that’s niggling at my brain every time I read that line so I’m open to suggestions and grateful to any help. Thanks
