Welcome back for another Six Sentence Sunday snippet from my WIP, The Glass Asylum. With the last two installments, we got a peek at Ehtishem's struggles as he visited a former lover. Today we start to see the impact of that visit on Rachel. (Note: Ferahi-va means thank you. Barethri means Mother and is an honorary title.)
“Have a good evening, Barethri,” Nahnesh said as she left the quarters.
“Ferahi-va.” I nodded but couldn’t meet her gaze, and then she was gone, and I was relieved to have escaped without needing to explain my emotions. They’d have baffled her. Monogamy, to the Ohnenrai, was a poor survival tactic; it was illogical not to spread their genes far and wide. But my personal beliefs were hard to bury.
Last week it was poor Ehtishem. This week it's poor Rachel.
Thanks for visiting. Please hop over to the official Six Sentence Sunday site for the list of this week's participating writers.
