Two-Line Tuesday

Here's two lines from Scent of Darkness by Christina Dodd:

It dwarfed the mighty trees around it, and it sat too close to the edge of the cliff. To her stunned gaze, it looked like a monster, the last of its species,hovering on the edge of lonely suicide.

And mine:

It was extremely satisfying to know exactly how much power was still left in my upper body. Extremely satisfying to hear the shattering of the glass on the tile floor, to know that I could break as well as be broken.

Head over to Women of Mystery for more two-lines...

I would so like to know more! She has found strength. But what happened to her prior and where is she heading? Intriguing.

I'm reading Scent of Darkness again. I can't wait until tomorrow to read your new stuff! Woo Hoo!

I liked your 2 lines as well as the excerpt. I read a little about you- I love the movies as well, am jealous of your close family relationships and wish someone could make me laugh so hard I'd pee in my pants.

I'm a big Dodd fan as well, Kay, and I like your two sentences a great deal.

Your two lines convey a power yet to be unleashed. Very intriguing.
