The Glass Asylum #2: Not Safe (Six Sentence Sunday)

Hello, Sixers! Thanks for coming by on this fine Six Sentence Sunday. I'm posting again from The Glass Asylum, this time a little later in the scene with Ghisga (see last week). Ehtishem's just learned that it's safe for him to have sex with Rachel. (I won't explain why he's been abstaining 'cause that would be a spoiler and then you'd be mad.)

========

But he took another large gulp of hot liquid. No it wasn’t [safe] — not for her, not right now. Ehtishem didn’t trust his self-control. If he did what he ached to do — chuck the cup and saucer over his shoulder, run headlong back to his quarters, and bury himself in Rachel — he’d injure and terrify her. Rachel’s trust was still tenuous. Another reason he shouldn’t be sitting in Ghisga’s quarters.

========

Poor guy.
