Teaser Excerpt from Unleashed (Book One)
The sun was slipping behind the brownstones across the street and turning the sky pink when I left for
’s. “Hey,” said the guy on the corner who always said
hey. I ignored him. “Hey, pretty lady, you got a beautiful ass,” he tried
again. I watched the concrete and power-walked away. Nancy
Ten minutes later I was at
’s, a low-key lesbian bar with a nice backyard. If
you wanted to talk to a stranger you could, but there was no pressure. If you
wanted to take someone home you could, but again there was no pressure. Nancy
“Tequila gimlet, straight up,” I said. The bartender, whose name I was pretty sure was Diane, nodded and moved off to make my drink. My face, reflected in the mirror behind the bar, peered from between a bottle of Blue Curacao and Midori. I needed a haircut. My fashionable bangs had grown out, and now I just pushed them behind my ears. Last night’s fight with Marcus and my early-morning journey to the pound had left puffy, blue-tinted circles under my eyes. All those tears had left the white around my gray irises streaked with red and—I leaned forward a little to make sure—my upper eyelids a bizarre orange.
Diane placed a martini glass brimming with sheer red liquid on the bar, and I handed her a ten. I moved toward the backyard, trying not to spill my drink all over my hand while spilling my drink all over my hand.
