Love Bleeds In War

Blurb

She crouched down in the bushes as the troops drew near. She closed her eyes and prayed that the thin branches and tiny yellow and green leaves were enough to shield her from detection. The footsteps became so loud that she found herself wishing they would pass quickly and return never again. She waited, prayed, wished, and then, there came an eerie silence. The quiet was broken by the sound of her own voice screaming as she was wretched free of her hiding place. Hands wrapped around her arms so tightly it was certain they would be bruised as she struggled to pull free. The two green clad soldiers did not even flinch as they dragged her out into the open. “Sir, we found this one spying on us from the bushes.” The soldier stated as he threw her to the ground before him. Her hands bled from scraping against the hard soil as she landed at the soldiers feet. Her soft blue dress was covered in the dusty earth and was torn from her ankle up to her thigh. Yet, she forced herself to gaze upward at the one the soldier had called ‘sir’ as he glared back down at her. “Who are you?” The man asked loudly. “I am no one.” She replied softly as she stared at the scar on the bitter man’s cheek.

William Elliott Kern: Long story, the plot uncovered midway through the story. From beginning, the story was fast moving. Then dragged on for quite some time. The Author was good in describing her characters, their clothing, etc. but a lot of that disclosure distracted from the story moving fast.Not withstanding, the...
