Welcome to another Six Sentence Sunday. Today we’ve got six from SKIN the upcoming sequel to FLESH. Here’s the blurb in case you don’t know the story...
Six months since the zombie plague struck, former librarian Roslyn Stewart has been holed up in a school with eight other survivors. But now the shelves in the school canteen are bare. The stranger at the gate has supplies that will ensure the group’s ongoing survival, but at a cost. He wants a woman.
Nick is a man with a plan. He’ll treat Roslyn like a Queen, devoting the rest of his life to protecting and providing for her. In exchange, of course, for sexual favours. It’s the deal of the century given the state of the world. But Roslyn doesn’t see it that way. The first chance she gets she attacks the ex-army man and attempts to escape, forcing Nick to contain her. And so begins his awkward courtship of the woman, with her chained to the bed for security reasons.
Nick is demanding a kiss in exchange for doing Roslyn a favour. Our heroine of course refuses and says he’d have to force her.
“I don’t have to force you. I’ve seen the way you look at me.”
“Like I think you’re a sociopathic, misogynistic, kidnapping cretin?”
“Like I’m a man you’re attracted to.”
Like hell. “I prefer my version,” she said.
