Welcome to Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday. Snippets of ten sentences or less are yours for the reading!
Today’s snippet comes from Book Two of The Black Wing Chronicles, tentatively titled The Watchtower.
She hated lying in bed next to him knowing he was going to leave.
The soft, pre-dawn light cast purple shadows inside the well-weathered tent. Though they had both been awake for some time, neither was in a hurry to abandon the warm cocoon of the insulated sleep sack. His touch feather light, he trailed his fingertips along her soft skin, tracing the curve of her shoulder. With a contented sigh, Bo closed her eyes and snuggled closer to him, savoring their last moments together. The folding cot was barely wide enough for one person but they were accustomed to sharing a small sleeping space; her bunk aboard her ship wasn’t much bigger.
“I shouldn’t have come,” she whispered. “I knew you wouldn’t get any sleep.”
“I got enough.”
That’s the snippet for the week. Thank you for stopping by. Please take the time to visit the other wonderful authors taking part in Science Fiction/Fantasy Saturday!

Not sure if it was intended or not, but the double meanings in this snippet made me chuckle. Remember, I’m 12… 😉
Yeah, I saw that from coming from a mile out 😉
I only write innuendo, remember?
Ahh. I want to snuggle with Blade!
Who said anything about it being Blade, huh?
What a lovely scene. Great details to set the scene, poignant dialogue.
Thank you! I don’t usually share the mushier scenes, but I really like this one.
