Here's another Weekend Writing Warriors 8 Sentence Sunday. So come join us in the fun that is #8sunday! ;)

This post is part of an ongoing blog hop hosted by Weekend Writing Warriors. Every Sunday, participating authors post eight sentences from a published work or perhaps their current work in progress. Then we hop to our fellow warriors’ blogs and check out all the fabulous fiction that’s happening! It's a great way to meet reader, writers, and your next favorite book!  :)

Here are 8 sentences from Unbreakable Hostage

Lareina Oliveira is as beautiful as she is smart. a Ph. D. student, she quickly catches the eye of fellow student, Tony Covelli. Tony can't get enough of Lareina. Lareina can't get away from Tony. After repeated rejections, he finally makes her his own by taking her hostage.

These 8 sentences take place during her grueling hostage experience.

As they continued on their aimless journey through the dark winter night, Lareina felt
her leg was increasingly aching and hurting. The pain was considerable. Thinking that it
was because she constantly slipping, twisting her ankles and falling on the uneven frozen
terrain because of her kitten heels, Lareina nonchalantly slipped them off as they hiked
through the forest. She didn't know if they would help lead to her rescue but she hoped it
would at least ease the pain in her leg.

Tony wasn't giving her any time to slow down, so hopefully walking barefoot would
help her to keep up with his brisk pace. He again hardly gave them enough time to eat,
rest, or even relieve themselves. Lareina prayed with each step, though, that she would
somehow be found.

Happy reading!

He sounds like a real b**tard, I sure hope that she manages to leave some trail for others to find her.

Welcome to WEWRWA, Lauren. Terrific eight. What happens next is the question. Frightening element. Well done.

You've done a good job of painting the scene; I can feel her physical pain and the frustration. But if she's now walking barefoot over frozen terrain, I imagine she'll be feeling a different kind of pain soon!

Very tense situation indeed. Plunges us right into the danger with her - great 8!

I'm not sure what kitten heels are, ecept uncomfortable.
