Six Sentence Sunday #3 : Hardly a Stranger Part 3

Welcome to my third Six Sentence Sunday and I’ve chosen my six from just after the duel scene in Hardly a Stranger, with Francis Redding and the Duke of Staines in close proximity. Enjoy!

* * *

“And I’m far from good nowadays.” The duke squeezed Francis’s backside. “Ask me to repay you properly when you’ve saved my life again. I’m sure we can come to some mutually pleasurable arrangement.”

Francis sighed. “Only you could proposition someone while you’re bleeding to death.”
