Sneak Peek Sunday

Sneak Peek WIP for Super Sunday

Running as fast as my legs could find purchase on the gleaming white sand; I struggled against the impulse to glance over my shoulder to see if anyone was following me. I had to find Bette and I had to find her fast. We had to get off this island, quick.

As I came around a bend of the beach, I saw that the previously well raked sand here was now riddled with the footprints of the hundreds of beach goers who had swarmed this tropical paradise for spring break. White beach chairs and colorful umbrellas dotted the landscape like the rainbow points to an exclamation mark of fun that seemed far removed from what I was dealing with. And there— lying like a gleaming goddess cooking in the bright sun— lay my best friend and the object of my search. Calling on a second or what felt like fifth wind to give me a last burst of speed to get to her, I sprinted to a skidding halt by her lounge chair.

Yeah... I didn't give you any piracy. Sorry... Maybe more later...
Off to enrich my kids minds by dragging them through some museums...
