Six Sunday #34 Forsaking the Prize Part 4

Is it Sunday already? Wow this week has really flown by. Thanks for dropping by my blog. It’s time for another Six Sunday Post from Forsaking the Prize. We continue on from last Sunday’s post but if you need a recap,  click here to start reading from the beginning.



Leopold pushed him (Tobias) across the room until he stood between a set of mirrors. He could see himself from all angles. Every pain he’d suffered was before his eyes. White scars crisscrossed his back, flexing under his muscles in a way that even he found repulsive. He turned from the view. “As expected.”


I really appreciate everyone who reads and comments each week, and those visiting my blog for the first time. You will find amazing authors participating in Six Sunday by visiting the host site, Six Sentence Sunday and by searching for #sixsunday via Twitter.

    A mirror does not lie. I think Leopold has found Tobias’ weakness. Nice!

    I feel so sorry for Tobias but I admire his resolve. Excellent excerpt, really caring about this character!

    He has external and I’m sure internal scars…nicely done!

    Looking forward to what we learn about the scars and how the story is taken and if it affects the relationship

    Very good scene. Again there’s a big difference between Leopold’s unharmed outrage and Tobias’ resignation.

    Aw… poor guy. I hate that he finds his scars repulsive. I hope he finds someone who can see past all that.

    But at least he accepts himself as he is. Refreshing to find that 🙂

    He definitely has my sympathy. I admire his resolve — and I’m looking forward to his encounters with his heroine. 🙂

    I’m looking forward to learning the backstory to all this.
