This week I am sharing some more sentences from my novel, Dark Blood. This time around, the sentences are through the point of view of one of the protagonists. Gavan is one of my more complicated characters. His moods change far more often than the other characters in the story. Not to mention, his past haunts him constantly.
Gavan was on his knees, holding his brother in his arms.
His hand lashed out as someone touched his shoulders.
He quickly unclenched his fist and watched in horror as Zuri gasped for air, staring at him as though he were a stranger.
He’d had his hand wrapped around her throat, an attempt to kill a ghost of his past, only moments ago and yet she was asking him senseless questions.
It’d never been like that; even in the prison they’d locked him in after the event.
Zuri Dukri was afraid of something and all he could hope for was that it wasn’t, in any way, him.
