Welcome to this week’s snippet. This continues on from last week’s snippet with no gaps.
FYI, in the first sentence, “it” refers to her heart.
Could it take much more of this torture? It felt like it was on its last leg as it pounded painfully in my chest. And with each step further, I felt like less and less air entered my lungs. Would I suffocate from exertion before we reached the cover of the woods? Was that even possible? What an ignominious end for so useless a life!
But even if my own heart gave out, I would see to it the young boy in my arms had a chance. He didn’t deserve whatever end that terrible witch had in store for him.
