As is apparent if you’ve read Merry XXXmas or know me from other places, I love to tell a story from one point of view and then flip things over and tell it again from the another point of view. So when I was offered the chance to do exactly that as a guest blogger on Literary Escapism I jumped at the chance. Check out my post there where I take on a scene from Circles Within Circles. In the original story you’ll read in Demons, Imps and Incubi this scene is told from the pov of Mary but in this scene you’ll get to see it from my demon, Cairn’s point of view.
If you’ve already read the story it’s a fun way to see a slightly different perspective on the scene and if you haven’t, well, consider it a teaser.
Here’s a teaser of the teaser…
…he held his arms up, palms out, to stop her protest before it could build too much momentum. “You are asking me to cast a powerful spell on a target far away. My powers are weak from centuries of banishment and disuse. I need to recover them.”
“Well, that’s very well and good,” she said. “But I don’t see—”
“I’m an incubus,” he said.
Her thoughts were written across her face as clearly as the arcane symbols she had etched into the packed earth floor around him. He watched, biting the inside of his cheek to keep from grinning as confusion was replaced by understanding, then shock, and finally anger.
“You want me to have sex with you, or you won’t save my brother.” Anger simmered beneath her words and her eyes narrowed.
“Or I cannot save your brother,” he corrected.
