The Book Gazette is sharing an excerpt from the book tour for science-fiction “Earth Cell”. We hope you enjoy the excerpt.
As I worked at the knots in her shoulders, she sat up. The pressure on my sides diminished. Her hands came to my shoulders, and her claws poked through the fur at her knuckles. “Ah, such strong hands,” she whispered.
“Perhaps if I sat up, I could pleasure you more, master,” I heard myself say. Flares of pain detonated in my mouth, but did not sway me from my desire to give Saawth the delight she deserved. After all, she’d spent a few hard days on Earth.
She adjusted herself, and I rose higher on the cushions so I could work my fingers into the tense muscles at her neck. Her claws slid further from their sheaths. I became aware of her fur tickling my bare skin and a growing heat in my groin. I saw my touch gave her pleasure. Her growing arousal told me she wanted more. That fed my hunger to give more.
I had an inkling of what was coming and found it didn’t bother me. If it gave her pleasure to claw me, then I would give my flesh. Without hesitation.
“Yes, such strong hands,” she said again, eyes closing.
As I dug harder at her shoulders, her claws brushed lightly down my upper arms, across my bare chest. I leaned closer, working my fingers around the back of her neck. Unexpectedly, she arched her back, her neck rising beyond my reach. My hands came to rest on the dense fur of her chest.
“Perhaps the master would prefer to be in her sleep bowl,” I said.
“Yes,” Saawth growled. “But not just yet.” She leaned back down, eyes still closed. Of their own accord, my hands returned to the back of her neck. “There. Yes.”
As I squeezed the tension from her muscles, her claws scratched lightly at my skin. My thoughts about them faded as I focused on how I could deepen the pleasure she deserved. The sunlight continued to warm me, and seemed to leave Saawth feeling even more relaxed. A light breeze floated into the room, tugging at the longer strands of her splendid coat and cooling the sweat across my brow.
Saawth raised her chin and sighed. Her claws pushed harder as they traveled over my upper body. Each left a distinct trail of pain, but so far drew no blood.
If it gives her pleasure, I thought.
I worked my fingers even harder, my thumbs rising up to massage the soft underside of her chin. The tip of her pink tongue poked from between her lips. She shook beneath my efforts. Her claws paused momentarily. I braced myself for what was coming while trying hard to massage away the knots in her muscles.
“Yes…” she growled.
When it came, the first slash hurt.
The second did not.
Nor the third…
