EXCERPT- The Hunt for Snow by S.E. Babin
I was making noise like a drunken elephant. I cringed as my boots squeaked through
the mud and other unmentionables, but I didn’t slow my pace any. Thunderous
footsteps echoed behind me as Max taunted me.
“Snow White, I’m going to geeet yooouuuu. Come here, you sexy little thing.”
I let out a crack of laughter and shot him the finger. But I kept running. Once I reached
the entrance, I shimmied up the rocks, but a vise-like grip grabbed my ankle and pulled
me down. We crashed into the sewer, me on top of Max and both of us cursing up a
“Max! Gross!” I struggled to get out his grip without having to stab him. I was going to
have to take a decon bath and get a tetanus shot after all this was done.
He laughed maniacally, but didn’t let his grip up. “Keep the wiggling up, lass, and I’ll
take you in this sewer.”
“Ugh.” As much as I wanted him, I didn’t think sewer monkey love would ever be worth
I stopped wriggling, and stared at him, those beautiful green eyes looking back at me
deep with emotions. I gave him a brilliant smile, straightened my neck, and head-
butted him in the nose with my forehead as hard as I could.
His shout of pain made me feel a tad guilty for being such a dirty fighter, literally,
but I’d given him what he wanted in order to keep him safe—a giant black eye that
he could take back to Naomi. His grip relinquished as he continued to groan, and I
scrambled off him and out of the dungeon. As I stood above the entrance looking down,
Max had one hand over his bloody nose, his eyes swelling and tearing up with both
amusement and pain. He shook his head at me as a blood-filled smile quirked his lips.
“Crazy bitch,” he murmured.
I gave him a wave and left him lying there. His pained laughter followed me out.
