Thanks so much to everyone for the amazing response last week's first taste of The Arrangement got!
This week's snippet is some more from my upcoming release with Rebel Ink Press 'The Arrangement' Book One of the Resistance trilogy. First the blurb:
Elsa Mostek is a young Jewish woman who is forced to move with her family from the Warsaw Ghetto in Poland to the Auschwitz concentration camp in 1943. She immediately draws the attention of Nazi Officer Friedrich Weiss who inexplicably shows favor towards her and helps her escape harm many times thanks to the power he wields in the camp. Aware that many of her fellow female prisoners are bartering their bodies for survival and in
desperation to save her starving family, Elsa makes an offer to Friedrich.
What Elsa does not know is that Friedrich is a spy with the German Resistance that has infiltrated the Nazi regime. He must keep up the pretense of loyalty to Hitler's cause as he sends secrets to those on the outside.
Friedrich doesn't want to take advantage of Elsa but can't help wanting her. As the misery of his position increases, she offers him the only light left in a world of darkness and despite his best intentions, Friedrich gives in to her offer. Passion explodes between them, giving them a reprieve from the monstrous world they inhabit, though both know it can never last.
Now, this week's six:
Elsa had fallen ill but recovered. She didn’t like to contemplate why but Rashda made it very clear to her that Friedrich had made sure she was on the list of those to receive the medication.
She was getting very tired of hearing of his favour for her because Elsa was not a stupid woman. She was terrified that he was simply a cat playing with a mouse before killing it. She entertained him. She feared what he would want in return and was partially relieved when she learned he had gone on a trip with his wife for two weeks. The other part of her feared what would happen to her if he was not around.
