My story tells the tale of Sheikh Rahim Sayf bin Hasnawi and the archaeologist he has hired to over see the excavation of the most significant ancient site in his kingdom. There are lots of wild desert moon filled nights, silk tents, bandits and the odd Persian carpet. I might throw in a Genie for luck. :)
"...There are gangs that roam the sands looking for women. A white woman would be a great trophy." Rahim's lips hovered over her own.
"Would you like them to own you?" he muttered breathing in her flowery scent.
"Would you like them to take you?" He pressed his growing erection against the flat planes of her stomach.
"Would you have them sell you to the highest bidder?"
"You would protect me." Her words were self assured and confident.
"Habibi, you need protecting from me most of all."
I'm PinInteresting with glee at the moment and have been influenced by Game of Thrones that I've just started watching. Though my hero got threatened by another yesterday while watching the Ireland/France Rugby. Such difficult decisions to be made, writing is so hard.....
