Tiny excerpt from Empath

One of the things I love about female characters is their attitude. It's fun to add dialogue when you have a character as strong as Thea say these kind of things in your head.

Excerpt from The King's Empath, chapter 4.
“Why is a lovely thing like you sitting here all alone?”
 Thea didn’t answer.
 “Well,” he took her silence as permission to sit, “how about I keep you company?”
 “I’m fine. You can leave.”
 The man’s looks reminded her of a fish. With puckered lips and eyes too big for his flat face, it was no wonder he had to pay for a woman’s touch.
 “Come on sweetheart, don’t be like that. I can make this a night you could only dream of. Just say yes and we’ll have a great time.”
 “No, you may leave now.”
 His cheeks reddened, but he kept himself calm. “Darling—“
 “Don’t call me that.”
 “That either.”
