Gold Digger - The Bear Part 2
Welcome to #SnippetSunday! Thank you so much for stopping by. Make sure to visit the other amazing authors of the Snippet Sunday Facebook group.
I'm continuing on where we left off last week. This is from my WIP, Gold Digger, an 1880s California historical. This scene takes place in the Sierra mountains. Winnie is my protagonist who has run away from a marriage of convenience to learn how to dig for gold - a fantasy she'd had since she was a child. She's been in the mountains for almost three months by this point. Tibbs, the other character in the scene, is her uncle. Hope you enjoy!
“Winnie, Winnie, wake up.”
The voice came from far away. Her head hurt, an ache that ricocheted around her skull. Her arm throbbed. This must be what it’s like to be hit by a stagecoach.
“There ya are. Wake up now.”
Winnie worked her eyes open and saw Tibbs bent down over her. Worry was etched deep in his old face.
“What in the hell have you been up to?! I leave you alone for a minute and you done gone shot a bear.”

I'd rather shoot the bear than get eaten by one. Great snippet, Karysa. :)

Or mauled - definitely! I had mixed feelings about writing this scene, but it's definitely a reality of that time, as well as an important piece to her development.

Shooting a bear is one thing, killing it is another; they aren't easy to kill. She accomplished a big thing!

Much better to shoot the bear than be attacked by one.

Well ... I'm glad she got to shoot the bear instead of being killed by it. Great snippet.
