Chapter One – On The “T”
(Pittsburgh - Eight Months After Sparta)
A few passengers on the early morning T paused briefly for a
look at the man tucked far into the back corner seat; his black wool cap pulled low on
his forehead. If they recognized the
local hero, all but swallowed up inside the over-sized hoodie, they never
approached. The hard edge in his eyes
and the intermittent scowl a sufficient deterrent. Most didn’t catch the slight wince that
crossed his features each a time a bump of the tracks pushed his left shoulder
against the side of the train. The pain shooting
down to his elbow and leaving a tingling sensation in his fingers. Fingers that restlessly rubbed against one
another as the trolley droned onward.
Hooded eyes kept their focus on the passing landscape through the blur
of a dozen different greasy fingerprints upon the window panes.
One particular young woman received a flicker of reaction, the grey eyes suddenly lightening as their focus rested briefly on her pleasing face and form. A shy smile his reward for risking the merest amount of human contact. Her own gaze lingered on the mesmerizing eyes, but it was the plump lips curled about a toothpick that truly caught her attention. The fullest, most tempting mouth she’d ever seen on a man and her tongue darted out to moisten her own parted lips as she quietly took her seat. Imagining the taste and feel of them moving hungrily upon her own. Her entire body. A heated flush rose in her cheeks even though the encounter was brief, and the man quickly turned back to his solitary gaze out the window. She watched as the toothpick rolled back and forth across his mouth while he kept huddled to himself.
