Exclusive Excerpt From Morticia Knight
Julio continued to pace, but his agitated mutterings seemed to be for Julio’s own benefit. Like the good little slave he was, he’d carefully hung up his tight, fake leather pants with the cutaways laced together at his outer thighs. His one of many black form-fitting tanks decorated with either rhinestones or studs had been set aside for him to hand wash later that day. The one he’d worn the night before was one of Harold’s favorites—it had a neon pink skull outlined with the sparkling fake jewels. He felt like an idiot wearing those clothes, but it had all been a part of the image Julio had created for him. Part emo kid, part twink, part bad boy. Even his street name had been Julio’s doing. He’d stolen the moniker of a character Slade had made up. It was one he’d hoped to use in a graphic novel one day. Instead, Julio had forever sullied it for him.
Julio’s sudden shout jostled Slade’s thoughts and brought him back to whatever it was that Julio continued to bitch about.
“No more of this small-time shit. Motherfuckers are gonna pay if they want the goods.” Julio
Julio finally halted on the rug, gritting his teeth as he slowly rubbed his hair back across the top of his head. Slade braced himself for the beating he was sure would come. Julio took a deep breath.
“Until I decide what to do with you, keep to your regular tricks. But you’ll also have to find a way to replace my income from Harold. Hustle up some fresh meat on the Strip.”
“But I’ve been trespassed by so many—”
Slade flinched as Julio raised his hand. In a surprising move, Julio lowered it, but continued to glare at Slade.
“Don’t want to mar the goods, just in case. But don’t think that gets you off the hook, you piece of shit. Just ’cause I can’t hurt you on the outside, doesn’t mean I can’t make you pay in other ways.” Julio’s black eyes took on an even more menacing gleam. “Make you hurt on the inside.”
Before he could stop himself, Slade whimpered. He was more terrified of Julio than he’d been since those first days. Those were times that he’d tried to erase from his memory. He wasn’t sure he could survive anything like that again.
Julio continued to stare at him as Slade pressed himself against the headboard, his stomach twisting on the inside. Slade’s throat tightened to the point that it gave him the impression it was trying to choke him.
After one final glare, Julio whipped around then stormed out of the bedroom. Slade exhaled, alarmed at how shaky he was. He couldn’t control the tremors that wracked him all over and he thought he might vomit.
At least I don’t have to worry about Harold anymore. That’s good, right?
Slade had an ominous feeling that there was nothing good about it at all.
