Excerpt From Wilda’s Outlaw: The Victorians for Sneak Peak Sunday
“How do you propose to convince him that you’ve been snatched rather than simply run away? Do we leave a note, or maybe I could go knock on the door and say, ‘hey, in case you didn’t notice, I’m kidnapping your fiancé, or whatever.’ Maybe that’d work.”
Pondering on that a moment, she frowned. “Oh, you cannot do that, and I’m afraid he would not believe a note…I mean, would he not think I wrote it and ran off?”
“Yeah, you may be right. Okay, let me think.” She did, glancing occasionally toward the house. The lights had been extinguished on the lower floor, but some still burned in the bed chambers. Suppose someone went to her room, found her gone, raised the alarm? This was taking far too much time.
“Can you scream?” he asked finally, startling her.
“Why…yes, I suppose I can.”
That said, he grabbed her around the waist and tossed her over his shoulder like a sack of feed. “You can scream anytime now.”
