A little Teaser....

For the last few months I have been crazy busy with life.  I was excited for the beginning of a new year, so I could set aside some time to write again.  Today was the first time I have been able to get back to my new manuscript. It is currently without a title as it is a work in progress. I have decided to post a little teaser from Chapter one.  I want to know what you think? So after you have read the teaser, make sure you post a comment letting me know your feelings on this new story!

My heart beat wildly in my chest, I could feel the air around me go stale.  The taste of metal on my tongue alerted me to a static charge in the air.  A burst of lighting shot through the dark, followed by a thunderous boom.  I didn’t move.  Death stared at me, his dark skin matching his black cloak in the shadows.
            “Why are you here?” I asked bravely.
            His eyes grew even darker as he stared at me. “You already know why I am here.”  He walked closer, the air growing colder with his every step.
            I could see my breath in the air now.  The lighting streaked the sky above me, lighting the darkness, outlining the figure of the dark man.  He reached for me, his cold fingers traced down the bare skin on my arm.  The icy touch froze my blood, and my breathing became labored.  He was going to kill me.
