Girl Within Girl Author: S.P. Aruna Genre: Erotic Thriller
Katrina is never alone. She is bound to others inside her, tighter than any Siamese twins could ever be: Cherry, the freewheeling photojournalist, Anisa, the covert spy-assassin, and others as yet unknown, all sharing her body and mind as she goes about her work in a psychiatric hospital. But she is starting to unravel, and her sole hope is the handsome Dr. Sean Paisley, the only one who can make her whole again. Girl Within Girl is a dark erotic thriller that wanders through a sensual maze of mind control and torture.
The next day there was a new development: we welcomed a new doctor to our staff. He was quite handsome, and that made the event even more exciting. His name was Dr. Sean Paisley. Fresh from his internship at McGill Medical, he exhibited a vigorous enthusiasm, made all the more appealing by his light brown, almost reddish, neatly clipped hair with a cute forelock hanging over his brow, twinkling blue eyes, and an affable smile. Of course, his good looks had all the nurses abuzz with speculative girlish gossip. Was his personality as attractive as his appearance? Would his presence lighten our daily chores? Was he available? My first contact with him was in the coffee-break room. I was putting hot water in a styrofoam cup, making myself some Lipton tea when he approached me. He smiled as he glanced at the ID badge pinned to my uniform just above my breast. "Hello...Katrina Novak." "Hello, doctor." I smiled back and shyly went to sit down at one of the two tables in the room. He grabbed a bottle of water from the fridge and sat down opposite me. "Been working here long?" he asked as he twisted off the cap of his Evian. Simple question, yeah? But it gave me more trouble than you would think. "Several years now, I imagine." "You imagine? That's a funny qualifier." "Several years," I said, with a short embarrassed chuckle. He took a swig of his water. "A newbie, like me. How do you like working here?" "Interesting and challenging," I replied with some sureness in my tone, hoping to redress my initial hesitancy. "Yeah, I think it's going to be the same for me." He took another gulp. "Well, I'm sure we'll get the opportunity to work together. And I just want to let you know that I greatly respect the work that you nurses do. I think patient care is one half of the equation for cure." I liked that, especially since I felt he was being sincere. So one question seemed to have been answered: his personality was as attractive as his looks. "Well, I'd love to sit here and chat with you, but I have to go to our weekly consultation meeting with the senior staff. Just dropped in cause I saw you and wanted to introduce myself." "Much appreciated." He got up. "See you around." I felt upbeat after that little chat. Not sure why, but it made me happy. Then I passed by a calendar that was attached next to the bulletin board. Today should be Tuesday, and so it was: Tuesday, April 26. I summoned up all the strength I had in me to avoid losing it right then and there. Somewhere along the way I had lost two weeks!
