One cool thing: Quote
Post a cool line from your WIP or one of your other stories. It can be a line, a sentence, a paragraph, in context or out, whatever—it just has to be cool.
I was tagged by @papofglencoe and @mareebrittenford Thanks for the tags<3 I don’t know how cool this is, but writing it felt cold. It was a difficult. It’s part of a scene from Lex Talionis. Unbetaed and subject to change.
He holds something in his hand. Lunges at us. Peeta fires his gun. The sound muffled. The guard is lying down. Is he dead? Peeta drops his gun. His face pale. Why does he looks so scared? He looks down between us. A red stain on his blue shirt. Oh no. He can’t leave me now. Everything spins. White lights dance around Peeta’s head. He’s my angel.
“Katniss? Stay with me. Please stay with me.”
Why am I lying down? Peeta’s terrified. I lift my hand up to his face, caressing his cheek. There’s something red on my finger. I paint a flower on his cheek. I’m here. I’ll always be here. With you.
“Katniss?” He pats the side of my face with his hands. “You need to stay with me.” Why does he think I’m leaving?
He opens the bag, pulling out something white and pushes it to my stomach. Then pain. Oh, the fucking pain. The lights disappear when the pain from my stomach flashes through my entire body, out to the tips of my fingers.
“Peeta!?” I cough.
“Hey, you’re going to be alright, okay.” I don’t know if he’s asking or telling me, but I believe him. He never lies. Not to me. “You have to try to stay awake okay. Can you do that?” The blood on his shirt isn’t his—it’s mine.
Thanks for reading!
