Weekend Writing Warriors 24 February 2019 (ER, LGBT, PA, RO)


“Is this really necessary?” Sonny demanded. “Couldn’t you just cuff her hands and allow her to walk freely? That collar must be choking her!”
“It is a light metal, Sir,” the guard, whose name was Zheng and who looked like an ancient warrior reassured Sonny.
“It’s all right, Sonny,” Felice reassured the junior Walton. “It really isn’t heavy at all. I’m grateful to be released from that cell. I know that you won’t let anything bad happen to me.”
“She’s playing you like a fiddle, Boy,” Tobias remarked to Sonny as they walked behind Zheng and Felice to a private elevator. “Have the two of you been…”

Notes:
This snippet comes from the ninth installment in the Carnal Invasion series entitled Love, Lust, and Lunacy.

  3. I'm curious about that collar. Is it preventing her from using magic, or something?

    1. Since it's Sonny, I leave open to interpretation. Were she to play Tobias like a fiddle, she would want to use a sledge hammer instead of a bow.
