I feel like this story needs a warning. The main character is not pleasant. She is not the kind of person you would want to meet, or have anything to do with.
I’ll give you a bit of background. I’ve recently finished writing the first draft of Shadowstrike, the third Shadows novel, and there are a number of new characters in it. One of these is Siren, a woman with a very dark background. I don’t go into too much of that in the novel, but to help me understand her character, I wrote this short story.
It made me dislike her more (although I still find her interesting), and as I edit Shadowstrike she may well change. But, for the moment, she’s the horrible person as portrayed in this short story.
So if you want something pleasant and light-hearted, don’t read this.
I’d be interested to hear your thoughts on this one.
