Robert Ellis: CITY OF FIRE, Chapter 24
Martin Fellows eyes Harriet Wilson on the other side of the lab table as they prepare to dissect a Madagascar hissing roach at Dreggco Industries. Fellows can smell Harriet’s vagina and becomes jealous because there’s another male biologist in the room. He looks at the roach in Harriet’s hand and remembers the look on Nikki Brant’s face when he downgraded her to a specimen and stabbed her to death the other night. Harriet says, “They can always tell when they’re about to die.” Martin Fellows nods as he readies his scalpel. “Yes, I think they can,” he says.
