I struggle to pull the tangled sheets off as I climbed to the floor. Shit. What the hell is going on? I yank it open, a rush of smoke consumes me. It's one side of the hall, leaving me hardly any room to get by". ( Chapter 1 )

The Friday 56:

"Am I breathing? My lungs hurt...


( pg 56 )

    [FYI: Maybe it's just my monitor, but the text on your blog is difficult to read. The letters are fuzzy and jammed together. You might want to view your post on a different computer to see how it may look to others.]

    1. I don't have a computer or laptop so I don't know how It would look on it but I only have my IPad and Kindle Fire and it looks fine on my iPad and Kindle Fire but I will enlarge the text because it is small on here and add a dull color blue font. Thank you for stopping by my blog and letting me now about the text size on my page! :)

  8. Fascinating fire snippets.
    Have to be honest, it was hard for me to read with the font and colors you chose. Sorry I had to mention it.
    Happy weekend!

    1. thank you for stopping by my blog. I will use a dull color of blue and enlarge the text next time because it is small on here but sorry I will not stop using the color blue my favorite color is blue and I really love how it looks on my page. Have a great weekend Freda! :)
