This is a continuation of my book FLIP where it left off. From this point forward, it is written in a soap opera fashion.
Try the first Novella in this series for free!! In the book Flip, due to be published in April 2007, the story ended after the first year of building a new life so as to survive in a post-apocalyptic world. Rich men became the servants of the poor, the well educated took a backseat to those with mechanical aptitude, and a man’s worth was now judged by the weight he could carry. Unfortunately for women, the advancement of women’s rights had been just as quickly dismissed by the Flip and replaced with the same rule of measure that men faced; they became worth only as much as they had to immediately offer. With men, it usually came down to their ability to endure hard labor and their ability to protect themselves and what was theirs. For many women, it most often came down to what they had to offer for their protection and their need for food. And one last thing; as in any good soap opera, pay careful attention to the very last snippet. It will display the very epitome of what 7 Corner cliff hangers look like.
“So… are you ready to tell me yet?”
Thomas raised his eyebrows and wondered what she was asking of him.
“Come on,” Danny whined in her most seductive tone, “I promise I won’t get mad. You liked it didn’t you?”
He now knew what she was talking about; the kiss he had shared with the young girl at his friend’s house. But there was no way he could see this as anything but fodder to be used against him at a later date. Still, there was something intriguing in the way she was questioning him that made him believe that there just might be something in it for him to come clean and admit the truth. After going so long without a total submission to his desires, it had been a huge boost to his ego knowing that a girl would throw herself at him.
“If I tell you the absolute truth what I thought about it, will you let it go at that?”
Danny smirked, giggled a little, and answered, “No!”
