Book Excerpt

Flat Nose passed a hand across her face. “I think we got her so scared she can’t talk.”

            “How about that, Taylor Swift? You scared of us?”

            “You think we’re gonna just go away if you ignore us?”

            The girl maintained focus, her fingertips white from gripping the rail.

            “I think she’s just teasin’ us,” Tall Boy said.

            “Yeah, she’s a tease,” Flat Nose echoed.

            “She ain’t gonna tell us nothin’.”

            “She sure ain’t gonna give us nothin’.”

            “Naw! She’s gonna make us look for it.”

            A gleam appeared in Tall Boy’s eyes. “Let’s have a treasure hunt!” He yanked her hands loose and spun her around. “Hoo, ain’t she pretty?”

            “She’s fine!” Flat Nose frisked her roughly. “She ain’t got no money, though.”

            “She’s got somethin’ better than money!”

            “Let’s see what you’ve got.” Tall Boy’s fingers probed for zippers. “How do you get this thing off, Baby Cheeks?”

            The girl’s eyes cleared. A moan of terror rose from her throat. Her hands flailed at him.

            “Now we’ve got her attention.” Tall Boy laughed, seizing her wrists. “Hold still.” From behind, Bent Nose grabbed the bodice and ripped it open. “Whoa! She’s juicy under this thing!”

            “She’s about to get juicier!”

            “You’re gonna give it up, girl”!

            “No! No!” She yanked one arm free and slashed at Tall Boy, her nails tearing four deep gashes in his cheek.
