Going back to my SFR , STILL out on submission, 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.
In the excerpt three weeks ago Tom was taken suddenly ill. Last week Tom and Andi discussed his illness. The conversation continues…:
Eyebrows drawn together in a small frown, he studied her face. “You look tired – tell me you aren’t sitting in the chair all night. I’ll have to reprimand Mitch for letting you pull the hard duty.”
“I’m fine,” Andi said. “In fact, you should probably try to get some more sleep.”
“I’ve slept enough.”
Promise I’ll pick up from here for next week’s six…
I LOVE and appreciate your comments….
