Friday Freebits with Ginger - #frifreebits #blogshare

Today, I'm continuing with White Heart, Lakota Spirit, and hoping you are enjoying it as much as I am.  Sometimes re-reading a story brings back the excitement the author felt when writing it.  I'm engrossed all over again.  Here's my six paragraphs about Grace Cummings and her family camped by the Black Hills.

***********


 The yelling grew louder as they came closer.
The furrows in her father’s brow frightened Grace “What is it, Papa?”

He darted for the wagon. “It’s Injuns! Hurry! You two women get inside and keep low. Kevin, get yer rifle!”

Grace’s heartbeat quickened and fear clutched her chest, making it hard to breathe. She’d heard about savages, but never saw one up close. She didn’t want to.

Her mother stood frozen in place. Grace grabbed her hand and pulled. “C’mon, Mama, we’d better do as Papa says.”

They ran around to the back of the wagon, and her mother boosted her up and over the closed tailgate. Grace dove inside, her mind filled with horrible thoughts. Would she get scalped or worse…were they all going to die? 

All the while, piercing yells sliced the air while thundering hooves pounded the ground.
