Happy Friday! It's hard to believe another week's flown by already. I hope yours was fun as well as fulfilling.
For today's Christian Fiction Friday post, I'm sharing a short snippet from one of my Agent Ko novellas. Ko is a recruit in training to become a North Korean spy.
The director stopped in front of Jin-Sun, a young recruit with a boyish face.
“You know what a loop is, don’t you, pansy?”
Jin-Sun didn’t shake visibly when the director towered over him, but Ko felt the internal quivering of his viscera as if her own body trembled in sync with his.
“A loop, sir?”
Ko wished she were closer to Jin-Sun, as if she could telepathically communicate the answer to him if they were standing closer together.
“That’s what I said, boy.” The director spoke slowly, like a cat pawing playfully at its prey.
Jin-Sun straightened his back and still only came up to the director’s shoulder. “A loop is when you can’t handle the pressure. Your brain makes your body repeat the same fixed routine, and you can’t snap out of it.”
The director frowned. “And what happens when you’re too weak to jerk that flaccid little mind of yours out of a loop?”
Jin-Sun kept his voice quiet and soft. “You die.”
