Really sorry to know that official Six Sentence Sunday is ending in on January 27, 2013 but until then we can keep having FUN!
Going back to my SFR , STILL 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.
In last week’s excerpt Tom was taken suddenly ill. There’s a LOT of plot between that moment and this excerpt:
“How long?” He frowned, apparently trying to remember the onset of the attack.
“Four days,” Andi said. “Sgt. Wilson told me you’ve had this for years, taking some black market medicine to keep it in check – how can you still be on active duty with a chronic condition like this?”
He took another swig of the juice, tipped the last drops onto his tongue then handed her the mug. “Command didn’t have to know since it never affected my ability to do the job before now.”
“That’s hard to believe, Tom, how could it not?”
I LOVE and appreciate your comments….and hopefully my spam filter will behave this week!
