First Sentence Friday! Chapter Four

The mind can play tricks on us, usually when we’re at our most vulnerable.  I told a story a while back on the blog here about traveling home late one night.  I remember I was really tired, and driving along on two lane country road, the radio on low.  I distinctly recall feeling very relaxed, and in the sort of mindset where you’re thinking, but not thinking – if that makes sense?

I was in a straightaway, and thought I saw someone standing at the side of the road, and it startled me so bad, I was suddenly alert, and then had the distinct sense…I was not alone.  You can read that post here, and you’ll see what I mean.

After a harrowing event that has lasted some time, my main character, Wallis Ann finds herself in a situation where she is exhausted, her mind overloaded.

CHAPTER FOUR

Coy Skinner’s ghost sat with me through the night like a heckling haint.
