This week I'm sharing a snippet from a first draft of another short paranormal WIP, ~ Wolfman.

Wolfman
Four weeks ago Alex went out for a bottle of wine, and disappeared.
Where was he?
And why was she here at the local zoo?
For no good reason she could identify, Jenny found herself heading for the wolf compound. The hairs on the back of her neck tingled as she approached. She counted seven of them. A couple sleeping in the shade of a tree, a mother and her three cubs gambolled near the artificial river watched over by an alpha male standing on a rock overhanging the water, his attention divided between the playful family and the solitary male across the enclosure.
Something about the lone male reached out to her. His desolation and confusion fused with her sense of loss.

I guess she found him...

Sandy Nachlinger said...

I like that the hairs on her neck tingled -- reminds me of how a dog or wolf's hair stands up when they're agitated. I love the word "gambolled."

Marsha Ward said...

Wonderful imagery! I too like the word "gambolled." It paints such a picture.

Jenna said...

Interesting that she was drawn to the wolf enclosure. Does she know something deep down about Alex that she didn't admit? I too think she knows that dejected wolf! Great sample.
