Excerpt
Kate meandered through the darkness, listening to her parents’ laughter, hoping that she wouldn’t accidentally pass their beach house. When the wind changed course, swirling around her instead of just passing by, Kate knew that something was off. She stopped immediately and turned around. She stepped forward and smacked into someone; the figure stepped on her foot and covered her mouth when she began to scream. Kate panicked, flailing her arms and legs out, wishing that she had stayed with her parents, wishing that they had asked her to walk closer to them.
A deep, rough voice whispered in Kate’s ear, telling her to calm down. Kate struggled even more, overcome by fear when she began to feel her strength waning. She was terrified by this man’s strength; she couldn’t move at all; the weight of his muscles was crushing her. The man began to walk backward, dragging Kate with him. They stepped underneath a deck and complete darkness shrouded their presence. Kate could feel her heart giving up, even though her body continued to struggle against the man’s hold on her.
“She’s quite a fighter,” Kate heard the man growl, and she grew afraid, wondering how many men stood there. “You should have stayed with your family, baby. They would have kept you safe and sound. You should learn not to wander off when it’s dark outside. Didn’t you learn that in school?” The man chuckled in Kate’s ear, and she slammed her head against his as hard as she could. The man let her go, disoriented for a moment, and even though Kate saw stars she knew that she needed to run away. She just hoped that another man wouldn’t catch her before she made it far enough away to scream.
