Sneak Peek Part Two of Fallen Souls
Time for Part two in the sneak peek of Fallen Souls!
Ash slanted his eyes to the right, stalling to give himself more time, and gasped. There, reflected in the car’s window, were the red eyes, highlighted against the outline of a tall, thin man. The shadow moved, and then he saw the flash of teeth.
He spun around. To either side of the house was forest, and nothing else. No one was there, nothing moved. It could have been an animal, he told himself. Then he saw glints of red in the forest, where there’d been only darkness. He turned quickly, grabbed Grace, and, throwing open the driver’s side door, shoved her in. He jumped in after her, pushing her into the other seat through some superhuman feat of strength, and slammed the door behind him. Slammed the locks down.
“Ash, what’s wrong?” Grace asked, her eyes wide and frightened.
He glanced in the rearview mirror, his breath so ragged that he couldn’t answer. There, leaning casually against one of the parked cars, was the man, his burning eyes focused intently on them. The man smiled slowly, as if he knew what Ash was doing, and knew that it wouldn’t work.
Panic shot through him. He threw the car into first gear and slammed on the gas.
