Like all other teasers, these are unedited. So… it may be a bit different in the final book but still wanted to give you a little taste.
There’s nothing there – I told myself. One step. There’s nothing there – my new mantra. Another step. There’s nothing there. Three, four, five steps. There’s nothing there. My breathing was still shallow, my heart still raced, but I still took another step, and another. There’s nothing there. I was only three steps from my window. I stared at the motionless curtains. There was nothing there. There wouldn’t be anything there and I would just laugh at my silliness. Two steps left. There’s nothing there. There’s nothing there. One step and I stood in front of my window, my heart pounding so loud in my ears it was all I could hear. There’s nothing there.
I placed my shaky hand on the edge of the curtain, my hand curling around the thick linen. With a deep breath, I pulled it back and nearly screamed at my own reflection staring back at me from the window. On the other side was complete darkness and no children.
I’ve totally scared myself silly like that lol I fell asleep on the couch one day, something woke me up. When I opened my eyes, I saw a man walk right in my line of sight… my heart skipped a beat before I realized it was on the tv lol
LOL!! That’s awesome. I do it to myself all the time
