Going back to my 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. Here’s a snippet from after they either rescued someone at Andi’s insistence…or didn’t LOL and have moved on, still trying to escape pursuers.
Andi is speaking to Sgt. Wilson.
“Something’s wrong with the captain- I want you take a look at him.”
Stopping in the middle of the trail, Wilson craned his head, trying to see the front of the line where Deverane was leading. “Sweating, got the shakes?”
How does he know that? Speechless, she nodded.
Shucking his main pack off, Wilson jerked the medkit out, spilling some of the other contents onto the trail, asking, “Can you stand rearguard for a minute, until I can send Rogers back to relieve you?”
I LOVE and appreciate your comments….and hopefully my spam filter will behave this week!
