16, 1793, Place de la Concorde
Early morning mist clung to the earth like a
shroud. In the distance was the outline of a massive structure, and in front of
it was a guillotine. Its ropes tethered at the side, the blade shone brightly,
glinting in the early morning sun.
A crowd of filthy people gathered down at the base of the
structure...waiting. Katherine lifted her hand to shield her eyes against the
morning light. A shadowy form climbed the stairs; the heavy thud of footsteps
on the wooden planks vibrated in her ears. A shiver of dread swept over her as
a huge man wearing a black hood came up, dragging his hapless victim by a rope,
their arms tied behind their back with a dark cloth covering their face.
The crowd jeered as the man pulled the cloth away revealing a woman.
Her dark hair was tangled with dirt and filth and covered most of her face. The
executioner pushed her down to her knees and pressed her forward, until her
neck lay inside the blood-soaked groove of the guillotine. The girl gazed
listlessly at the screaming crowd below.
Even though he was hurt, he was still too strong. She gave up trying
to overpower him and did the only thing she could think of to silence him. She reached
forward and grabbed his face and then kissed him soundly on the lips.
Devlin was stunned at first but quickly acclimated himself to the
change of circumstance. He pressed his own lips more firmly against hers, kissing
her back as he gathered her pliable body closer to his own. His tongue teased
her lips until she opened her mouth for him. He delved deeper, tasting her
sweetness, savoring the moment.
A shadow raced past the
entrance before disappearing farther down the passageway.
The kiss was soft, sweet...absolutely perfect. Devlin pulled away.
