Saturday Snippet: Cornered

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

Last week we met Inner Circle agent Ian Kendall who was called in to investigate the hovercycle accident that put Blade on a med ship orbiting a backwater planet. Kendall has given orders that Bo (in her guise as Marissa, Blade’s Joy Babe Companion) cannot visit Blade. When Bo sought him out to confront him on it, he was waiting for her and has led her into an exam room where he sealed the door shut.

His lips curved into a smile that didn’t reach his dark eyes. He studied her with an unblinking, soulless stare. It sent a chill down her spine. She’d seen the same predatory look on Blade’s face plenty, but it had never been aimed at her.

Her brow furrowed. She felt like a glumrat, just waiting for the felidaen to strike. She didn’t care for it. Her uncle Royce’s words echoed in her ear.

“Whenever you find yourself cornered, keep your head, show no fear, and don’t get defensive. A cool head will let you find your way out of any situation.”

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!
