Six Sentence Sunday SF Work in Progress

This Sunday’s excerpt is from an SFR  WIP set in the same universe as my recently published WRECK of the NEBULA DREAM. Andrianda (Andi) Markriss, a planetary representative for Loxton Galactic Trading, has been spending a lazy summer with her best friend in the highly exclusive summer compound of the planet Zulaire’s ruling nobility, networking. On a day when a number of strange  and disturbing things have already happened, Captain Tom Deverane, Sectors Special Forces, unexpectedly shows up with a troop of soldiers and demands she leave with him. Immediately.

Andi doesn’t take this very well….in fact, she refuses to go. Later in the evening, all hell has broken loose, as the captain predicted.

She stared at the mansion, trying to figure out exactly where the fire was blazing.  The  nursery! Adrenalin coursed through her and she jumped to her feet, heedless of the danger. “The fire’s on the top floor where the nursery is. I have to get to the children.” Before Deverane had a chance to stop her, Andi was running, fear threatening to choke off her breath even as she raced uphill.

  1. What a moving six. I definitely felt the fear and heat. The last line had me cheering she’d make it in time. Good job!

  2. I REALLY appreciate the comments from everyone, glad the scene seems to be working….hoping to get this WIP into submission early next week…so the encouragement today is very supportive.
