Six Sentence Sunday 10/30

Happy day before Halloween! Glad to be back with Six Sunday this week. I missed you guys last week.

If you want to see the super-amazing authors who make Six Sunday so much fun, click here.



Today's snippet follows last week's, just a little farther in the chapter. This begins a showdown between the crazy spider woman (Maggie) and Dr. James (the asshat). "Caleb" is the name Maggie's been saying over and over through the scene.


“Caleb’s dead,” James snapped.
At that, Maggie froze; the rage swelling inside her drifted out of every pore. Her chest heaved. Her hands balled into fists. After a few breaths, little trickles of blood snaked between her fingers and dropped into little puddles on the perfect white tile.
James remained unfazed and started to walk away, but Maggie made one swift movement toward him and grabbed his lab coat, smudging it with red.
