Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors / Snippet Sunday! and Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms!
Continuing on where we left off last week with my new asylum story. I actually purchased the stock image you see below. I’ve never done that before for a story I’ve written. Usually I would just save the image with the watermark on it, so this tells me I’m very serious about this story!
Morell stormed off without saying another word and I returned my attention to the man pacing. According to his records, he got off on giving everyone at the facility a problem, refusing to do anything the guards or nurses asked. He would like to cause a scene sometimes, smashing himself into a wall or door until he has to be subdued and given an injection to be knocked out – I’m sure he got off on that, too. As a criminal mastermind, who controlled the highly addictive synthetic drug, L, of this city, I was sure he was addicted to it, too, and needed something during his stay to help him through without it. Knowing his knack for giving staff problems, getting him out of his room was…well, tricky.
Minutes later, I heard head of security’s, Frank Lewis’ voice order him to put his hands through the door for cuffs. He stopped pacing and faced the door not moving. Lewis repeated his command. I held my breath, hoping he would listen, so things didn’t have to get worse. Again he just stared.
Thanks for reading! You can read more great authors here and here!
Enjoy your Sunday!
Good description of that inmate. The narrator really has him pegged.
Sounds like he will definitely be a challenge, but, at least she knows what she’s up against.
She thinks she does. I don’t think anything could really prepare her for him. Thanks for reading!
Good description of the situation and the inmate. Sounds pretty intense!
Uh oh. I wonder how far his obstinance will go… Good job setting up the scene!
Very descriptive excerpt. I imagine he is a challenge to the staff.
