Feb 10, 2014 – Okal Rel Quote

Feb 10, 2014 - Okal Rel Quote. Sexual assault ?

Okal Rel science fiction books - Crossing the line, sexual assault or ...? Who decides.

Writer-daughter Jennifer Lott's 2013 Xmas gift to Lynda Williams was an Okal Rel quote of the day stack for 2014, featuring intriguing snapshots of the ORU adventure from all titles in the series: Saga, Legacies and online.

From saga novel Righteous Anger by Lynda Williams.

"Horth," Hara demanded, "what did you do wrong?"

The question engaged Horth because that was exactly what he was trying to figure out. Zer Sarn had called him a Vrellish animal. Mother talked about the Vrellish error. Cook and Hara clearly felt that he had messed up, but rape was too severe a charge in Horth's opinion. He would never have hurt Alice. At least, he didn't think he would have.

Suddenly it occurred to him that only one person knew for sure how gravely his misconduct should be judged.

"Ask Alice," he told Hara.

Feb 10, 2014 - Okal Rel Quote. Sexual assault ? A young Horth struggles to weigh the gravity of his skirmish with family servant, Alice.

Commentary

Horth's first adventure with women traumatizes both the young Horth and the woman, a family servant named Alice, whose interest in Horth's brother Branst is misinterpreted by Horth as a general invitation. Chagrined and alarmed about the skirmish, Horth arrives at the conclusion that Alice, herself, is the only one who can really know how badly his actions harmed her.
