Welcome to Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday. Snippets of ten sentences or less are yours for the reading!
Yeah, I was getting bored with the game with the drink. I found another scene I wanted to share. This one goes back to the inciting incident in HERO’S END. An Inner Circle Agent named Kendall is investigating Blade’s near-fatal hovercycle accident. Aboard the medical ship, Kendall has issued orders preventing Bo (in her alias as his Joy Babe) from seeing him. An angry Bo goes looking for the high-handed agent to give him a piece of her mind and to get to the bottom of the situation. She suspects there is more to this than simple prejudice against women in the comfort trade.
He lay in wait for her outside of recovery. He bared his teeth by way of a greeting.
“I’ve been expecting you,” he said, uncoiling from his chair. “Come with me.”
Her every sense on sudden alert, Bo glanced towards Blade’s door. No help from that quarter – not this time. She followed the agent into an empty treatment room. The door hissed shut behind them. He pulled a scrambler from his pocket and pointed it at the door.
“That should take care of any interruptions,” he 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!
