A novella in the Enforcers and Coterie series, Throwing Away the Good delves deeper into a world where magic co-exists peacefully with the ordinary, for the most part…
I lusted after him the first time I laid eyes on him. He was simply beautiful, more radiant and alive than the Fae holding me captive. And that’s saying a lot, as the Fae are breathtaking to behold.
There was something about him, though, a quiet dignity that shone through his lowly station. I’d heard the rumors of his existence, a sex slave to the master, sometimes sold to the highest bidder for the night. And yet, he walked with his head held high – metaphorically, that is.
He hid his face most of the time, staring at the ground. The reactions he received to his unearthly beauty showed me why. The Fae ogled him with lust, greed and a need to possess him.
Still, he showed kindness to the other slaves, me included. He’d take beatings meant for others, as he knew the master would never do anything to permanently scar him. He’d slip me extra scraps of food and convince the master to let me train in the weapons room. There, I felt in control, powerful, and it helped me realize an important truth.
I am not a slave.
My destiny did not belong to the master. I will hold my head up with dignity and wait for an opportunity to escape. Soon, that day will come. I only hope I can take him with me.
This is Karl’s story.
