Tuesday Teaser #15

On Tuesdays I post a teaser for my current work in progress along with my friend M.R. Graham. I invite my writer friends to join in. If you do, post a link in the comments.

The rules:
Post a link, image, quote, or excerpt related to or taken from your current WIP.
State the name of the WIP.
Do NOT explain yourself! Resist the urge to wax poetic. This is a hint, not an outline.


With my fingertips, I rubbed my little concoction onto the shutters in the symbol of an upside down U with the middle slightly slanted. Uruz, the symbol for freedom, because that’s what I needed.

“Aberto,” I whispered. Open.

The shutters rattled before flying open and slamming against the wall. With a flick of my wrist the window slid up and I slipped into the fading twilight. The landing jarred my leg, and I toppled to the ground as a numbing flare spread up my calf. I gritted my teeth and dug my fingernails in the side of the window sill to pull myself up. The sun dipped low, turning he sky a pinkish orange as I headed towards the woods, hell-bent of getting to Bela Vista before that man realized I was gone.
