So I've had today's pitch in mind for a while now, but since it's more sci fi than fantasy I haven't really done anything with it.
The more I think about it, though, the more it seems like a good short story or maybe novella, so perhaps being shorter, I might get to it.
A SINGLE BREATH
Kindra has the crosshairs of her gun on Delfrank’s heart. She is going to pull the trigger. She has to. That was her whole purpose in coming back to this time—kill Delfrank to silence a secret, to end a war, to prevent a genocide.
She didn’t anticipate falling in love with him.
But she didn’t know who he would be, and by the time she learned his identity, she was already smitten. Now in the span of a single breath she considers everything: a hundred stolen kisses and ten thousand lost souls, the sound of Delfrank’s laugh and her brother’s tears as he held his wife, the life she wants and the choice she is forced to make.
She must pull the trigger. She must! But how many lifetimes can she live in a single breath before she makes her final choice?
