Another Sunday, another six sentences! I realized that if I keep posting excerpts from Want, by the time it comes out in June, I’ll have given away the whole thing! So, here are six sentences from “Aftertaste,” a short story that will be available for free (not sure when). It’s told from a different (adult) character’s POV.
The first time was the worst. I woke up clutching sweat-soaked sheets. I flipped on the light to make sure. It was so real, so pleasant, and then so very wrong and horrible. It was the night after I found her purple and pliant in her studio. She’d curled into me like a kitten, then pinned me in place with a look and a desperate gesture.
