From Lifeline Echoes/WIP by Kay Springsteen
Ryan downshifted again and punched the gas. His mind registered the apparition blocking the road in front of him a bare second before reaction set in. With a curse on his lips, he stood on the brake, sending his car into a slow, sideways skid and stalling the engine.
Adrenaline screamed through his veins, skirted along raw nerves as he stared, with equal measures of irritation and astonishment. Washed in the golden blush from the setting sun, the horse reared, angrily striking out at the air between them with menacing hooves, nearly unseating his rider. With a toss of his head, the startled horse reared again, baring his teeth and screaming defiantly in Ryan’s direction.
