Kay says: Her writing is superb. I picked this one because the vivid descriptions made me uncomfortable reading the scene, which was exactly what they were supposed to do. And I want to know more about the relationship between Jess and the narrator.
The lock on the door clunked and the hinges groaned as a guard pushed it open. He stomped across my cell, grabbed my hair and jerked. I swiped my cracked lips with a dry tongue as I looked up at him.
“What the hell is wrong with you?”
“I-I-I…” I was shaking too hard to speak. If I had to guess, I’d say malaria. I had the symptoms. Fever, night sweats, chills, a crushing headache. Every muscle and bone in my body hurt so bad I didn’t have words to describe my anguish.
Two men yelling, then silence. Sweet, blessed silence. The episode passed and I could think again. I closed my eyes, pictured Jester in my head. He smiled—the one with the dimple that melted my panties. He brushed my hair off my face, his eyes teasing as they roamed over me. His gaze was as potent as a touch.
“Ah, baby. What have they done to you?”
“Sorry, Jess. I’m sick. Can’t play today.”
“No, sweetheart. You’re too sick to play. Hold on. I’ll be right back.”
Then the screams started. They weren’t mine this time.
