Sunday Snippet: May I Have This Dance?

Check out a fight scene from a old work that I’ve now decided to rework. This is near where this novella starts where Gemma (our heroine) sees Sebastian (our main man or hero if you prefer). Enjoy!

 

Up ahead, three males surrounded Sebastian and another male. This wouldn’t usually concern Gemma but the red streak across Sebastian’s shirt did. “Is that blood on Sebastian?”

Carlyn frowned. “I don’t see him as the fighting type.”

“Not usually,” Sara said.

Yet it became quite obvious Sebastian and the largest of the males were not on friendly terms. Gemma balled her hands into fists as Carlyn stopped the car. Every muscle in her tensed as the dark-haired male rushed Sebastian. Their bodies connected, but Sebastian twisted, pushing him into the bushes.

Pulled by instinct, fear or plain insanity, Gemma couldn’t open the passenger side of the car fast enough. She ran toward the fight. Three other men stood watching as Sebastian and his attacker wrestled between punches. Sebastian’s dominance soothed her nerves. He ducked his attacker’s fist and landed a hook to the side of the man’s face.

As she neared, Sebastian’s gaze registered surprise. Her chest fluttered for an instant, then clenched as his attacker’s fist connected with his face, knocking him off balance.

“No.” Gemma fell to the ground beside him.

A thick arm wrapped around her neck, hoisting her up and away before she could touch him. She stumbled, losing her footing as she clawed away the pressure preventing her from breathing

“Take your hands off her or I will rip you to shreds.” Sebastian stood in front of her, chest heaving, eyes burning with fury.
