Six Sentence Sunday
I can't tear my gaze from the impossible darkness of his eyes. My eyelids droop, my limbs turn liquid. A strong arm loops round my back and lowers me to the floor. I fight against the overwhelming desire to sleep. Each time I force my eyelids open they clamp shut again. I'm drowning in his dark eyes–the eyes of a killer.
