Six Sentence Sunday – Excerpt from The Watcher

Welcome to another Six Sentence Sunday, where authors share six sentences from a work in progress or completed work.

My six sentences today are a little further into Chapter One, of The Watcher, what Mia sees when she examines the old man (from last week).

A sharp pain pulsed behind my eyes, followed by a high-pitched hum. Squinting, I saw a hazy shadow appear over the man, the kind you see when clouds pass over the sun.

The shadow started to move, undulating at first, then roiling and twisting into a heavy smoke that grew darker, more substantial. Inky blackness folded in on itself like boiled tar, forming first a head, then a muzzle as the darkness stretched out into a neck…body…four legs.

What kind of shadow does this?

Then it growled.
