The "Bite Me! Bite Me!" passage from James M Caine's The Postman Always Rings Twice
1 min read
"Is the door locked, Frank?"
"I must have locked it."
She looked at me, and got pale. She went to the swinging door, and peeped through. Then she went into the lunchroom, but in a minute she was back.
"They went away."
"I don't know why I locked it."
"I forgot to unlock it."
She started for the lunchroom again, but I stopped her. "Let's - leave it locked."
"Nobody can get in if it's locked. I got some cooking to do. I'll wash up this plate."
I took her in my arms and mashed my mouth up against hers . . . . "Bite me! Bite me!"
I bit her. I sunk my teeth into her lips so deep I could feel the blood spurt into my mouth. It was running down her neck when I carried her upstairs.
