Six Sunday #34 Forsaking the Prize Part 4

Is it Sunday already? Wow this week has really flown by. Thanks for dropping by my blog. It’s time for another Six Sunday Post from Forsaking the Prize. We continue on from last Sunday’s post but if you need a recap,  click here to start reading from the beginning.

Enjoy!

Leopold pushed him (Tobias) across the room until he stood between a set of mirrors. He could see himself from all angles. Every pain he’d suffered was before his eyes. White scars crisscrossed his back, flexing under his muscles in a way that even he found repulsive. He turned from the view. “As expected.”

A mirror does not lie. I think Leopold has found Tobias’ weakness. Nice!

Looking forward to what we learn about the scars and how the story is taken and if it affects the relationship

Very good scene. Again there’s a big difference between Leopold’s unharmed outrage and Tobias’ resignation.

Aw… poor guy. I hate that he finds his scars repulsive. I hope he finds someone who can see past all that.

But at least he accepts himself as he is. Refreshing to find that 🙂

He definitely has my sympathy. I admire his resolve — and I’m looking forward to his encounters with his heroine. 🙂
