When I was six, my family was driving on a highway late at night. Streaks of headlights and taillights painted the dark. For the first time, I realized that each car held people living lives as important to them as mine was to me.
I wanted to know what those lives were, and to share my own..
Today, I’m pulling out the Figurative Literary Soapbox for my fellow WIPpeteer, Alana Terry, who’s here to share her tragic and beautiful love story with a mission, Torn Asunder. And, even better, we can help!
Just let me make sure everyone’s comfortable, Alana….all set, everybody? OK, Alana – the soapbox and the blog are all yours! Welcome!
Torn Asunder by Alana Terry
Excerpt from Torn Asunder:
Simon gritted his teeth. His head felt like it was sinking. The general kept his voice level and pleasant as he slipped the device over Simon’s pinky. “Now, you just tell me who you delivered your Bibles to, and I’ll let you leave here with everything intact.”Simon tried to swallow. His whole jaw was swollen from his scuffle in the woods. He shut his eyes and hoped the general couldn’t feel him tremble.
General Sin chuckled to himself. “Silly me. I forgot.” He slid the device off Simon’s finger. “This kind of tool won’t work on a big, strong man like you.” He strode over to Hannah and yanked her hand before Simon could even cry out. He jammed her ring finger into the opening.
Simon struggled against his iron restraints. “Let her go!”
Hannah sucked in her breath. General Sin still glared at Simon. “This is your last chance. Give me the names, and I’ll release her unharmed.”
Simon’s field of vision blurred over. He wanted to scream. The metal from his handcuffs sliced open his wrists. He pictured himself breaking free and tackling the general to the ground.
“Better talk.” General Sin yawned. “I hate getting my uniform messy.”
Hannah’s hand trembled, but she didn’t make a noise.
Simon clenched his jaw, unable to tear his face away from Hannah’s wide, terrified eyes.
