Six Sentence Sunday

Here’s the fourth and final excerpt from my new book Wreck of the Nebula Dream, science fiction with romantic elements, available NOW from Amazon for the kindle. Nick Jameson, Sectors Special Forces, has unexpectedly wound up traveling to his next assignment via a new luxury liner. The ship has had problems already on the voyage but now has suffered a catastrophe of Titanic proportions.

At a certain point in the struggle to reach safety, Nick is faced with a difficult choice between his oath as a military officer and his desire to save his companions (trying to avoid spoilers here). Mara is speaking first:

“Do your duty if that’s the path you have to take, don’t worry about us.”

“How exactly am I supposed to abandon you, Mara? I’d give anything to get you out of this mess. I’d gladly die to save you.” Nick glanced at the oddly assorted little group, as important to him now as any team of Special Forces operators had been in the past. “All of you.”

  1. I like how Mara is telling him to “do your duty” and “don’t worry about us,” but I sense she’s saying that as a way of coping with some inner doubt.

    • Yes, he’s really torn and Mara doesn’t want to add to his burden but…it’s as you said! Thanks for the comment, I was happy to know the underlying tension came through!
