So sorry I wasn’t able to visit everyone last week. PantheaCon beckoned and I was out all day. Originally I wasn’t going on Sunday (didn’t want to miss my Six Sunday!), but a free ticket and ride tipped the scales. . .
The following snippet continues from last week. Jason is still holding Siobhan and the students hostage, a scalpel in his hand.
Calmly, trying to sooth the fear from her voice, Siobhan addressed the students she could feel behind her. “You guys, please leave the room right now. Jason and I need to chat–right, Jason?” She paused a beat as if she wanted to hear the answer. “Let’s just you and I talk.”
“Fucking shut up, bitch!” Jason answered, his voice shooting out, high and quivering.
