Friday's Fractured Features...

Today for your fractured features, I give you teaser from my current Novel in Progress:
.
Just Another Player
.
Portland, Oregon – record freeze
Thursday, February 9th
2:40am
.
Dielan rolled over, “Suzanna what are ya doing?”
            “I turned the furnace up. It’s freezing in here.”
            “Come back ta bed sweetheart.”
            “I am. I’m getting another blanket first.”
            “Um…”
.
            As Suzanna got back in bed she said, “Dielan, hold me; it feels like it’s going to be a wicked day today.”
            Dielan was all too happy to do as requested. He pulled her into his body, spooning her neatly into him, as he snuggled her into his arms.
            She slept fitfully. It was black-dark when she awoke. Suzanna Delrio felt disoriented. There was death in the air. She could feel it - almost taste it. Suzanna rubbed the sleep from her eyes and wiped the sweat from her brow.  
            She had awakened feeling even more chilled to the bone - and not from the freezing elements. She turned over; foreboding filled her.
            Dielan was gone.   ...

Hope you enjoyed the sample. I love comments, so go ahead and give me some.  :O)
