Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
"You 'bout done, GI Jane?" she asked, gesturing toward me. "Or maybe you want to put a few more knives in your hair. And there's still your other leg. Maybe wrap a whip around it?"
"What's with you?" I asked. "I'm just getting ready to ride with Marcello. You know, go stir up the boys, get 'em psyched. Aren't you coming?"
She stared at me, her blue eyes piercing mine. It almost hurt me, physically, to keep it up, to lie to her to her face. I turned and studied the rest of the weapons - fairly picked over by now. But that was when I found what I wanted. The iron claw attached to the length of rope. I'd have to come back for it later, when I wasn't with Lia.
