Sample Sunday 23

Sample Sunday is a weekly posting from my pre-published work in progress Eternal Curse: Giovanni’s Angel. Each week I will post approximately 100 – 150 words from this installment of the series. Please visit the ToiBox to read samples of my other works.
Eternal Curse: Giovanni’s Angel chapter 6

Mira’s work consisted of taking scrapings of Giovanni’s skin and tongue, clippings of his hair and nails, and many other samples, as well as drawing blood with much difficulty. Every time Mira approached Giovanni’s body, he seemed to tense up in a way that Mira had never seen before. His body reacted by becoming defensive. It was almost as though Giovanni had to give Mira permission before she was able to gather samples from his body. The surface of his skin seemed to change in texture, becoming denser, and his veins appeared to be hiding or blending in with their surrounding tissue.

Mira’s work was slowed by what she thought were mechanical and electrical difficulties with the lab equipment. Many times the sensors would sound off or display fatal readings for Giovanni while he was being examined.
