A short excerpt from "Tint" (a work in progress)
by Carolyn Brown
 


Shadows crept across the wall as the room swam and the figures in front of me merged and swirled into one.  I felt as if I would not be able to stand up straight for long.  The orange tablet they had made me swallow was taking effect and my mind was beginning to become foggy and unfocused.  I knew I was in trouble when I felt my heart beat faster and droplets of sweat formed upon my skin!

Slater walked into the room, I knew it was him even though my senses had begun to wane.  The others in the room parted as he strode past them, giving him a wide berth to move towards me.  I did not expect him to hit me, but he did, with the full force of his giant fist smashed into my cheekbone, sending me down towards the floor. 

Droplets of blood escaped from my mouth, dripping down my chin, but I was unable to wipe them off as my hands were bound behind my back.  I tried to gain some composure as I struggled to stand again, defiantly looking my once vampire lover in the eyes!  He hit me again and everything faded….

 ######

This excerpt is from a novel in progress titled, “Tint”, inspired by another writing blog fest where the phrase “…and everything faded,” was to be included in the writing. When completed, Tint will be a stand-alone novel targeting a New Adult to Adult audience in the paranormal genre (Vampire), with very dark concepts. 

The villain for the purpose of this blogfest is Slater, a very nasty vampire indeed. He has dark hair cut in an emo style, shaven close to his scalp with a long fringe falling over his left eye. Pure white skin, almost black eyes, lined with kohl, perfect white teeth and a look of superiority in his stance.

Posing as a model for a magazine named Tint, Slater has the fashion world wound up in the palm of his hand and is sought after by women everywhere he goes. He is an egotistical bastard with a very mean streak and has no remorse for humans or for those who defy him.

I hope she gets to hit him back. With a garlic-dipped baseball bat.

TBM said...

Oooo...this sounds painful and I want to know why he's hitting.

This story is definitely worthy of this blogfest. Tint will be quite scary and interesting when it's done I bet.

Krista McLaughlin said...

There's nothing like a good villain and judging by this excerpt, Slater is one.
