Monday’s MARTYR Teaser

21472900

“When he was younger, Tenn had immersed himself in stories of heroes and battle. The tales were always gorgeous in a way—heart-pumping and engaging, filled with quick moves and dancing blows. The Resurrection taught him that all those books were full of shit.

Real battle wasn’t pretty. You trained to block and parry and dodge, yes, but you didn’t think about it, didn’t focus on long dancing combinations of moves. You swung. You screamed a lot. You killed as fast as you could and didn’t think about anything but the feel of flesh giving way under your hands. And if you were even a hairsbreadth too slow, if today just wasn’t your day, you were never, ever heard from again.

He gritted his teeth and prayed today wasn’t that day.”
