When the shower in Lucas's tree house slows to a trickle, a towel-clad Sascha goes in search of her mate to ask him to fix it. She ends up getting more than she expected, when he makes her bargain for his repair services.
The Shower is a short vignette in the lives of Lucas and Sascha from Nalini Singh's Psy-Changeling world. The author calls it a deleted scene. However, in her introductory note, she also says that chronologically speaking, it falls sometime after the events of Slave to Sensation, so I'm not sure where it was deleted from. In any case, it's super-short, registering at a mere two pages on my eReader, or 569 words, which is flash-fiction.
The story is a very simple one in which Sascha is having trouble with the shower not working and must bargain with Lucas to get him to fix it. This is a fun and sensual little diversion that was well-written and that I enjoyed. However, as with most stories that are so brief, it left me not entirely satisfied. I was craving the love scene I knew was coming, but the story cuts off before that. Overall, though, not bad. I'd recommend it to fans of the series, Lucas and Sascha in particular. The Shower can be read for free on the author's website.
