So it's a Saturday in March, and that means we get a tidbit of Hard Line to celebrate that we're a month away from release! (That's April 2nd for the ebook, April 24th for the paperback, folks). Now, last year I did this on FB, but I had a bunch of readers point out that they aren't on FB anymore, so I decided to post these in the blog instead. But I'll still put up alerts on FB (and Goodreads and Twitter), never fear! So without further ado...
Tobias got up and stacked his school things on the table, clearing off the bed so he could get some sleep. The guilt in his gut seemed to grow with every passing hour, but he refused to let it sway his path. “I’d do this differently if I had a choice, you know.”
Sullivan paused in the act of shoving his feet back into his boots. “You do have a choice. You just made the one that screws me over. That’s fine, whatever, be a dick if you want to. But don’t lie about what your options are. I can see the bullshit from a mile away.”
With that hanging in the air, Sullivan finished tying his laces and grabbed his laptop.
Tobias was still standing there, hands aching from holding his textbook too tightly, long after Sullivan was gone.
