Now on to the excerpt!


“This is crazy.” Ostir clenches her jaw. “We can’t just abandon you to die.”
“Then, tell me, what other choice do I have?” Adan asks, his eyes almost pleading.
Sum walks up with his knife, the blade shooting skyward. “The locator chip may not be removable, but your hand is. We cut off your hand.” We all look to Sum, Ostir grimacing and Klen debating in his head.
Then, Sum responds, “I’ve had worse. Look at me.” He gestures to his radiated face.
His comment makes Ostir and I grimace.
Klen nods. “Yes, it’s either that or you die at the hands of Borran’s military.” He looks at Adan with hard eyes.
Ostir interjects, her expression wincing already. “Can’t we just cut around the locator chip? Pull it out of the hand?”
Adan shakes his head. “No, the wiring is twisted with my veins. Any cutting around it will trigger the blow.” Adan looks down at his hand, and then at me, and then to Sum. “Okay, do it.”
I give Adan a thick branch to bite down on as Sum cuts his serrated blade into Adan’s wrist. Adan’s scream is hollow like the treeit has to be so no one hears. His body wriggles as Sum saws over his wrist bone, and I can’t look. I cast my gaze in the opposite direction, anywhere but Adan.
Ostir grabs me and stands beside me, like a comforting sister, and I miss mine. I try to keep my mind occupied as Adan’s quiet screams of agony wash over me. I remember my sister and I playing in the creek near our house, and sewing our pants together. My parents named her May, and she taught me how to cross-stitch. We had to reuse old clothes from years prior. Buying new clothing or even fabrics got expensive, but because of my sister’s sewing talents, I never had to wear the same clothes year after year. Tears swell remembering her death.

When silence engulfs me, I flip around as my eyes fall on a pool of blood around Adan, and drops of blood still seeping like syrup down his leg. Sum is wrapping Adan’s left hand with cloth torn from his garb, and Adan is fixing his glove around his bloody arm stump. I can’t look at the blood. Adan’s blood.

    1. Thank you. The idea is that we are starting to graft now snake skin in human burn victims and other areas such as that in real life, so this takes it to a new level.

  2. Sounds kind of hard to read at times, very emotional.
