Teaser Tuesday

Purely because Race was bugging me for it, have a teaser. This section will probably be re-written as this whole chapter needs more world building in it.

The slaves where quickly fed and sent to their sleeping quarters, tomorrow they would prepare for the market. Now that they had no chains on, the slaves were once again separated by gender and locked in their rooms to spend their last night as Raven slaves. Tomorrow some of them would be sold, to who knew what fate. In their separate rooms M6 and M4 lay awake each thinking over the night before, each aware that this could be their last night together. It had taken so long to realise what they had. And now it would be stripped away. They both knew life was cruel. This was just another blow. In the darkness, separated by a thin wooden wall they both rolled over. Unaware that they were now facing each other they drifted off to sleep trying not to think of what could have been.

  8. Becca, it's about a girl trained to be a medical slave who is about to be sold to a group reputed to be the cruellest traders in the land. At this point she's just realised that she's in love with a fellow slave, and tomorrow is the slave market.

    Race you're just upset because I've not finished.
