Six Sentence Sunday: Matilde Kicks Ass

Continuing Six Sentence Sunday with material from Fall for Me. I decided that since I've shown Bartholomew's imposing presence, and introduced that royal bitch, Claire, it's time you got to see Matilde in action. She is, after all, a very dangerous daemon in her own right. (And, I hope I'll be forgiven for going one sentence over the limit. Mea culpa.) WARNING: Here there be violence.

In this scene, Matilde is crouched upon her heavy, wooden kitchen table, poised to punish two men who are attacking her maid, Petchra.

------------

Her rapist’s back faced me. He didn’t see death coming.

I grabbed his head with both hands, jerked him backwards, and slammed his skull into the table’s edge. I felt a sickening crunch as his head separated from his spine, and his skull fragmented. I let his convulsing body fall to the floor where he flopped about like a fish.

The other soldier had dropped Petchra when I seized his partner. He stared at me. “Jesus Christ.”
