Welcome to Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday. Snippets of ten to fifteen sentences or less are yours for the reading!
Yes, this is still from work-in-progress BARRON’S LAST STAND. During a prison break, Bo picked up a stowaway who happened to be the last person she expected — or wanted — to see aboard her ship, Blade Devon – the man she can’t seem to decide is either the love of her life, or her worst nightmare. So, Bo decided the best place for him is on his knees in the engine compartment of her ship…with her pistol trained on him, and her finger on the trigger itching to pull it up tight.
Blade? He’s taking the situation with all the arrogant humor and charm he displays in every harrowing predicament he finds himself.
She studied his face for a long moment. It had been a long time since she’d last seen him. He’d been a clean-shaven, ruggedly handsome, lying bastard then. His face had gained maturity and character with new wrinkles and scars – and most notably, the beard. Maker help her, she found him more attractive than she ever had. She doubted his lying nature had improved any, however.
“You look good,” he said.
“You’re not as pretty as you used to be,” she fired back. Bo’s eyes narrowed. “What the hell are you doing on my ship, Blade?”
“Same as you,” a lopsided smile crossed his face. “Breaking out of Akita.”
“What’s a First Sector IC Agent doing locked up in Akita?”
“That’s a long story…”
That’s the snippet for the week. Thank you for stopping by.
