Announcement: The next chapter of What Fates Impose goes live on Friday. Sorry for the slower updates. The Jill arc, while being exciting and new for me as a writer, kicked my butt. It really was...wait for it, wait for it...trouble. And Chapter 34 should be an interesting game-changer/conclusion to that particular arc.
A little bit from next chapter after the break!
Casey opened his mouth to reply, but before he could say anything, a new round of percussion shook the walls, sounding both farther away and still all too near. Casey’s mouth snapped shut. He nodded once. “About damn time.”Any ideas on who's going to get shot in 34?
“What was that?” Chuck demanded, speaking up for the first time since the shooting had started. Though he expected his voice to rise and fall due to panic, it was surprisingly steady.
Sarah turned her head and glanced his way. The look was fleeting, split-second at most, but it packed all of the punch of a thousand-second stare: worry turning to relief when she saw him unharmed, a little fear, reassurance, respect, even a little fun.
Of course, Sarah would be the type to find amusement in a gun battle. She liked him, after all. Clearly, Sarah Walker and sanity weren’t as close friends as he had thought. And oh geez, if they survived today, he was going to have to reevaluate everything having to do with women.
Hope you enjoyed!
PS - mxpw and I have a deal going. If he finishes a DA chapter by next Friday, I'll put a line in my story that's a spoiler, so I can't say what it is here. Everybody cheer him on!
