Saturday Snippet: Hole In The Wall

Welcome to Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday. Snippets of ten sentences or less are yours for the reading!

Today’s snippet comes from Book Three of The Black Wing Chronicles ~ BARRON’S LAST STAND.

Blade and his brother Chase have a favor to ask of an unlicensed doctor working out of her home in a squalid colony. It’s not the first time Blade has sought her help.


Can we please come in?”

Marshall slowly turned to Blade, tearing her eyes from Chase at the last possible second.

“No,” she said. “I haven’t gotten everything repaired from your last friendly visit.”

“Marshall, please?”

She stared up at him her eyes large and devoid of amusement. “I have a hole in my wall. The wind and rain come into my house through the hole in my wall. I didn’t want a hole in my wall, but thanks to you I now have a hole in my wall.”

“I can fix the hole in your wall,” Blade said.


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!

  1. UGGGHGHGHG! T.M.! Really!?!? Jeeeeeez.

    ANYWAY, I liked the dialogue back and forth, particularly Marshall’s “I have a hole in my wall. I didn’t want a hole in my wall.” Very nicely written.

  2. Man, that hole in the wall is really bugging her! Now it’s bugging me! Good stuff, nice repartee!

    TM, you dirty old man who still lives in the body of a thirteen year old! Haha!

  3. Can’t really fault her reasoning for saying no… too bad he hadn’t thought to repair that after it happened, eh?

    Great dialogue, btw! I really get a sense of her personality…
