First minute of the audio and cover art for “Call Me By Name” my November Patreon story.
Summary: A familiar face from Mary’s past boards the Rouge Rogue. When this person challenges Anne’s belief in the future of her and Mary’s relationship, she makes a life-changing decision.
In the flash of a second, Captain Mary Flint interposed her sword between the Lobsterback and the young blonde woman who had declined his attention. “The lady said ‘no’, sir!” She spat.
When the British regular fell back, raising his sword to strike again, Mary leaped forward. The tricorn hat, which had been hiding her hair, fell to the ground. The man’s blue eyes widened in recognition, but she could not stop now. She had thrown her body’s weight behind the blow with the pommel of her sword. The thick steel carapace which protected her knuckles smacked into the side of his face. Blood bubbled up as the skin over his cheek and beard tore. His eyes rolled and he crumpled to the cobblestones.
“Gods be damned,” she muttered under her breath. Crouching to see if he still breathed, she collected her hat and slammed it back down over her distinguishable red hair.
