Time for Tuesday Teaser! This is another snippet of Bound by Destiny.
Dale walked to the force field, and careful not to touch it, looked out. His cell was part of a much larger, circular room. In the center were two large desks which set back to back and were filled with view screens. That must be where the guards were stationed.
No one was there, but the screens were operational. Maybe he was being watched by remote control? He glanced around. The circular room held nothing but cells. He couldn’t see into the ones next to him, but he could see the ones across the room.
He guessed there were maybe ten cells, and they were all empty. Having the guard station in the center of the room now made sense. Whoever sat there could see into the cells at all times. And so could the other prisoners. The lack of privacy was disturbing.
Dayo turned away from the force field and continued his exploration of his cell. The walls were solid and smooth, but there was a vent in the ceilings. Dayo stood on the bed for a better look. Yep, that was protected by a force field too.
Sighing, Dayo sat down. Only the basic necessities were provided, but that didn’t surprise him. Now that he was alone, he let Belton’s words replay in his head. Someone set this up. Although Belton hadn’t said who, there was only one person he and Raiden met lately who fit. What has Belton said? Someone with wealth and prestige didn’t take kindly to your mate rebuffing him.
And for those in the US... Happy 4th of July!
