Shadow Wars Homebound
by LaVerne Thompson writing as Ursula Sinclair
A New Adult Sci/fi Romance
My body being flung forward in the car from the hard braking, roused me from a sound sleep. The rain struck the car harder now, but I had no trouble making out the two men framed in the headlights, standing in the middle of the road, dressed in black, their long coats flapping out like wings behind them. I blinked, but they were still there, like something from a science fiction movie. Except this was no fiction and it sure as hell was no movie screen we watched.
The one on the right raised his arm and pointed it in our direction. I could see a blue light slowly ringing his arm. As though he charged the weapon he held, when suddenly another blue blast hit him from behind and he went flying into the air. The other man with him didn’t pause to check on his friend, but also raised his hand.
I could see it glowing bright blue. Hotter, faster. My gaze rested riveted on it.
“Out. Get out!” Veil yelled. Breaking into my fear, he opened the door and pulled me out behind him. He dragged me into a wet ditch seconds before the car exploded. He didn’t wait but kept dragging me away from the explosion.
In my shock, I could do nothing but stumble after him in the rain. “Mr. Moss,” I croaked out.
Veil screamed, “RUN!”
