It’s Sunday again, and I’m still posting consecutive bits from the second chapter of Rescue Operation (working title.) Tod’s the youngest of a group of teenaged “freedom fighters” who’ve been captured by slavers. To look at previous snippets, click “Six sentence Sunday” under the “Writing” tab.

At least not for him.

The twins had learned long since to split up when their father was after them, and to communicate their intentions to each other without words.  With luck, they could confuse their father to the point that they both got away, and at the worst, he had only one of them to abuse.  Tod didn’t think either of them had much of a chance, but he caught Tammy’s eye and gave the signal to split up.

She shook her head slightly.

He repeated the signal, more emphatic this time.
