Happy #8SentenceSunday! This month, our WeWriWas will be from The Peace Officer, Brynn's story in the Loving Her series.

Brynn Racanelli is a daughter, a sister, a friend, a partner, a police officer, and so much more. Devoted to serving others through her police work, and to helping her sister who battles chronic Lyme Disease, she is the the poster child of selflessness. But she does have wants, needs, hopes, and dreams. After the sad ending of a long term relationship, she wonders if she will ever be able to get what she wants. Will fate finally bring her the life and love she’s always dreamed of?

Background on the snippet: Brynn and Donna have teamed up to arrest a local drug dealer who also shot Donna's (police) partner, John. After a lengthy search, they have found their man. They, and several other officers, have descended on his house.

“Okay.” Brynn said as she took a deep breath. “Let’s do this.”
The group of officers all walked up and spread out around the disheveled little house.
Brynn knocked on the weathered wooden front door. “Doylestown police, open up!” She shouted with all her might. Her voice boomed down the street.

Hope you liked it!
Happy reading!

I have a bad feeling that this is not going to go down peacefully. Good tension.

From all the police shows on TV, I can picture this vividly.

And, as an aside, in going through the wewriwa list, I notice there are a lot of writers from .CA here. I'm a transplanted Canuck living in Arizona but currently visiting family in Vancouver.

And what will they find when they open the door, I wonder?

I was a touch confused at who was who (you mention a 'bunch of police officers', but the portray seemed believable. Hope no one gets hurt.... wait, this is fiction--I bet there is a big shoot out and someone gets mortally injured.
