Rohan Quine, “The Platinum Raven” – chapter 17 “A kiss of jagged glass” – first sample – video
Silent in the din, and very wrong, is a pudgy hand grasping the banisters beside Scorpio’s podium, rising as its hidden owner scales the steps behind.
Now she spots Amber, reaching the podium and starting up the steps.
Above him in the spotlight, Scorpio is dancing, forever and oblivious—twirling and swooping, electric in bright white, swathed in the mirror mist as if in silver silk…
The man glances down, hesitates at Amber’s onset, then continues up at frantic speed. He keeps himself steady with the pudgy hand she saw, while his other hand clutches the bottle that he broke, with a kiss of jagged glass where he smashed off its neck.
