Six Sentence Sunday - How to Rescue a Pirate - Only a Lad

Welcome back, Sixers! So nice to see you again and welcome to the newcomers! Thank you for your comments on my story posts. They really make my day and let me know I'm not just writing to the great beyond. I hope you've been enjoying the glimpses into my world of the weird, the wild, & the wicked as much as I enjoy sharing. There are several other authors who participate in Six Sentence Sunday and some of my favorites are Cara Michaels, JoAnn Ross, Lynne Murray, and Jayel Kaye. Be sure to check out the whole list. There are some great authors who don't sign up in the first few numbers. Goran Zidar, Kallypso Masters, and Ciara Ballintyne are a few I read.

In this snippet, Marcus Blackheart woke up from a nightmare and threw his companion, a "lad" he knew as Sam, against the wall. Sam survived, but the concussion made the lad faint and Marcus is regretting his violence. Then he noticed something odd after he laid Sam on the bed.

Marcus pushed the shirt further back and untied the band in an effort to allow the lad a respite from the pressure. To his immense surprise, the silk slid away to reveal overly developed pectoral muscles that almost looked like...
A combination of astonishment and arousal slammed into him as he realized he wasn’t looking at a young boy but rather a fully mature female with delectable, rounded breasts. Rosy aureoles with large nipples tempted his lips and tongue and he caught the scent of the tinarchs once more. He jerked his gaze up at the fan of golden hair across the pillow above the elegantly arching brows and delicate nose with its tip slightly upturned, the full sensuous lips with the cleanly shaven jawline below.
His eyes widened as he recognized those features, years earlier displayed openly for him on a female tied to the Captain’s berth.

He might have some reparations to make, even if he was rescued by a girl! ;) Thanks for stopping by and happy reading! :)
