La Déesse Noire: The Black Goddess
by Mariana Gabrielle

A loud banging woke Kali from a sound sleep, the first in almost a week, the last night she would spend in the bed she had shared with Fitz. Sitting up, smoothing the gown she hadn’t removed before she curled up on her mattress, she slowly unwrapped her cramped arms from around a pillow that still smelled like him. She remembered crying herself to sleep, in part because her monthlies were now nine days late, a worry before he had set her aside, but now a reason for terror. She sniffled to clear her stuffy nose and her hand moved naturally to smooth her hair, surely sticking out in all directions.

Maybe it was… no, if it were Fitz, he would have used the key and slid silently into her bed, kissing her throat and shoulders until she woke. She had chosen not to change the locks on the off-chance he might… She scowled the pitiful thoughts right out of her head.
