Last Girls, Thirty

Kelly and Betsy poured out of the tent. Betsy immediately spotted Denny, and ran towards him. The top of his head was hanging by a flap of scalp. She froze, as Kelly knelt by him to check for a pulse. “Goddamnit,” she said. “Why did you do this?”… more »

“I'll take this watch,” Denny said. “The prick detective is still stalking the place. That's personal, now, but he only wants me. I couldn't risk one of you getting between us. And like you said, we'll need all our strength to make it out of here come… more »

“Found a beer, too,” Denny said, rattling around a small bottle of pills in one hand while brandishing a can in the other. “To wash it down.” Betsy and Kelly shared a look, and started to peel back the shirts. Lark whimpered. “You're scabbing nicely,”… more »

“She's resting, ish,” Kelly said, glancing toward Lark. “I gave her a couple of beers. It cut through the skin, muscles, and I think it hit stuff beneath. She was having trouble moving it, and I'm not sure that's just because of pain.” “God... she'll… more »

“Did you hear that?” Denny asked, cocking his head to the side. “No,” Kelly said, shivering. The campfire was shrinking as their available wood dwindled. They didn't dare venture out for more, until daylight. “But that's the reason I'm not even trying… more »

Last Girls, Chapter Twenty-four

Kelly sat beside Denny on the fallen log. He couldn't explain it, but it was comforting for him, reminding him of earlier, his terror, being in chains. Maybe he felt like he deserved that, and sitting there helped him remember that. “That was shitty of… more »

Last Girls, Chapter Twenty-three

Kelly heard the others running up behind her, heard their exclamations of disbelief, the beginning of murmured condolences. They crashed against her like waves on the rocks, all paling in comparison to the conviction that had been growing in her for… more »

Last Girls, Chapter Twenty-two

Kelly wanted to hate Alan, and maybe some small part of her did. It had been easier, when she was able to tell herself he was just following his libido, taking her for granted and maybe even putting her health at risk. But now she saw the truth. He… more »

Alan felt good for the first time in weeks. There were unanswered questions, sure, but just having asked them, having pondered them, he felt like finally he had a chance to disentangle himself from the weight he'd been struggling beneath. Some of that… more »

“I get the feeling that could have gone better,” Kelly said. “Yeah,” Alan admitted. “I think most of us always had an inkling, or at least a suspicion. But he's never really understood it, and even these last couple of weeks, when he couldn't hide it… more »
