Rocks and Hard Places

~

From “Tears (of a Slave) – Midrosian Chronicles Book 3″ – the book that has taken me nine months to write!  I’m doing final edits now, so look for it to be out late summer!

Parin tried to run away.  It didn’t work.  Now she has to make a decision:

“What do I have to do if I stay here?”

He looked at her incredulously. “I’m saving you from my father and everything he’d do to you as a runaway slave, and you want to negotiate?”

“No, I want to know if staying with you is better than killing myself.”

He let out a breath as he dropped into a chair. “All right. Fair enough.” He thought. He hadn’t planned to own a slave.  What would she do? “You’d cook and clean, and… do whatever else I wanted you to do.”

“Would you expect me to have sex with you?”

He furrowed his brow. “I don’t usually have sex with a slave; I use a slave for sex.”

She understood the difference. “Would I be safer here than at your father’s?”

He raised his eyebrows. “Yes. Considerably.”

“All right.”

He nodded and stood, a little confused at how he’d let himself be manipulated into bargaining with a slave. “I’ll be back in a little bit.”

“I have to pee.”

He raised an eyebrow at her. “Hold it.”

Stay tuned – more excerpts to come!
