Sydney Rye is hanging out in India with her boyfriend, Dan, reading paperbacks and sipping beer. No violence and no reminders of her past. But when she and Blue, are attacked by a pact of wild dogs, Sydney starts to feel that old itch again; to do good by being bad.
Trouble finds Rye when she stops the attempted rape and murder of Anita, a reporter working on a story of corruption and human trafficking. The atrocities Anita describes send Sydney, Blue and Dan on a quest that takes them across India after a dangerous and, up until now, untouchable, figure. While Sydney struggles to accept her true nature she realizes that it is the only way to end decades of abuse and exploitation. But Rye fears that she will lose herself, becoming no better than the monster she fights against.
I took off down a dirt ridge that ran along a culvert which brought water out of the town. The stench of sewer was ripe as we roared through the open space. When we reached the river the woman said, "That way, towards the highway." I turned the bike at the top of the hill, my bare leg glowing in their headlights. On my thigh the thick ridge of a scar from the last time I got shot stood out puckered and pink.
Two scooters left, one with two guys on it. I wanted to send them into the sewage that sulked by but there was no way… unless I got off the bike and faced these ignorant fucks right there. I revved the engine watching their approach.
"What are you doing? We need to go!" the woman on the back of my bike said, squeezing me around the belly.
"Do they have guns?" I asked.
"Yes!" she squealed. "Come on." She pushed on me. "What are you doing?"
I revved the engine and this time let it catch sending us shooting along the dirt road past the neatly lined crops. I sped up headed for the tree line, my engine roaring. We hit a bump and got some air; I felt the breath rock in my lungs, my heart jump in my throat.
Emily will be awarding a $25 Amazon GC to one randomly drawn commenter.
