Six Sentence Sunday – Science Fiction Romance

This Sunday’s excerpt is from an SFR , out on submission now, 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.
Trying to avoid spoilers here, after certain “events”, she and the soldiers are on the run. Coming across a deserted village, they risk a stop to search for food and a communications link…

You don’t go alone,” Deverane said as he came to her side.

“I don’t need a guard, I know how to use this,” She waved the blaster. “And I can take care of myself. Surely checking out the com room at the shrine is more pressing than escorting me?”

 “You’re stubborn at all times, aren’t you?”

“Better believe it.”
