Like I did before, www.webook.com has their monthly challenge and this one I was actually able to participate in!

The theme was revenge, which fit nicely within my Inbetween universe!

I cut and pasted to meet at 300 word limit.

Here is what I came up with!

 

She approached me slowly.  Seductively.  Each step crossing in front of the other.  Her black, satin stilettos softly clicking as they hit the concrete floor.  She was long and curved.  Her posture perfect.  She had beautiful hair the color of cherry wood.  Her skin was smooth like powder.  Her eyes were blue, or grey, or clear, I couldn’t tell.  She was hypnotic.

She passed me, dragging her icy nails up my restrained arm.  It sent shivers down my spine and a buzzing in my stomach.  They continued across the back of my neck, up through my hair, pulling slightly, then down my shoulders, resting there.  She leaned in from behind me, whispering in my ear; her thick Spanish accent wrapping around her words like a noose.

“He was mine, you know.”

She snaked her hands back up around my neck, tracing my pulsing veins, which I was now acutely more aware of.

“Did you know that he broke my heart?  Or has he never even mentioned me?”  She gripped the base of my neck harder.  “Do you know what the worst part is?  He turned my lover.”  She was running her hands across my sternum.  “Everyone has allegiances to him.  Everyone.  And now my Victor too.”  She sounded actually hurt.  Actually heart broken. And actually livid.

“So I am going to take from him what he took from me.”  Pink scratches were forming over the top of my chest where she clawed and feigned strangulations.  I winced in fear and pain.  “Stand her up.”

The two men guarding the door rushed me, grabbing my arms and dragging me from the chair.  She had one hand around my throat and lifted me inches off the ground.  Inches were enough.

“Darling, don’t cry.  I’m not going to kill you.  Not technically.”

 

I hope you enjoyed it! Stay tuned for more selections from my novel!
