Excerpt from Shiv Crew
“My body wears me down,” Lexi said. “I see by its vibrations. I don’t see in the literal sense of the word. But that doesn't matter. The point is…”
She trailed off, as though she’d lost her point and couldn't find it.
Levi stepped in. “She’s a fighter, Rune. You know what Denim and I can do.” He pointed at Lex and his voice was proud when he continued speaking. “She’s better.”
“Better?” Rune was skeptical. She knew the twins loved the girl, but it didn't make sense that they’d lie. Rune could easily test her.
As though he’d read her mind, Denim moved to push a chair out of the way. Ellis grabbed the other one.
“Try her out,” Denim said.
But Rune was hesitant. Try out a blind girl? What was she supposed to do, exactly, to test her?
Levi shot her a smile and pulled his shiv. “We’ll do it.” He looked at Rune. “Give us some space. You and Ellis stand behind the desk.”
Rune looked at him.
“Please,” he added.
