Six Sentence Sunday

What fun! This is my first go at Six Sentence Sunday (more info here). With no further ado, I present six sentences from my current manuscript, BITERS, a young adult futuristic romance:
“Going somewhere?”
I know that voice – and I know it well. I know how it sounds as it laughs and teases, coaxing my own laughter in response. I know how it sounds offering tender words of comfort while I’m so overcome with the biting pain of grief that my sobs come out as screams. And I know how it sounds as it whispers in my ear causing a reaction so pleasurable that my knees weaken and my heart flutters.
Ironically, my knees weaken now – from dread not desire.
