This is a snippet from my WIP, Everlasting. I hope you enjoy.
Once more, Detective Alexis shifted her butt, this time a little to the right. Blood returned to the numb area with a stabbing awareness which would’ve made her wince if it wasn’t for the two detectives sitting across the table staring at her. Standing and stretching was out of the question. The two would see it as a weakness they could exploit. They’d offer her something to eat, drink, another bathroom break, anything to get her to talk.
She almost laughed at their frustration, then she’d look down at the new jewelry linking her wrists together and her orange jumpsuit, and realized she had nothing to laugh about.

Great six. I’m intrigued how this detective wound up in this predicament.
Nothing indeed, l like her!
I love how it ends. Didn’t expect to see a detective in jail gear!
Really enjoyed your six. Very good scene.
Oooh. Sounds good, Tominque. Makes me wonder why she’s been arrested.
Good six–makes me curious to know more about what’s going on here.
Oh nice. Now I want to know why she’s in jail. Great six.
You know how to leave a reader dangling, don’t you? Great snippet.
Would love to read more… 🙂
My first response was what the hell happened. It was my second response as well.
This is so intriguing — how she knows what they’ll expect, so she does the opposite. I can’t wait to see what’s next. 🙂
Great six, you got my attention.
