From a new Science Fiction WIP I’ve got going, set in the same universe as several of my other novels. (There will be romance LOL!) The first speaker is a Sectors Special Forces Captain, just arrived on this planet, along with one sergeant:
“This place has the feel of a riot about to happen,” Mike said, studying the market stalls in their immediate vicinity. “I’ve been watching the pair of old women selling fruit – they aren’t even bargaining – and the fish monger is basically giving his catch away.”
The sergeant rubbed a hand over his jaw. “Thought the situation report listed this place as peaceful?”
Leaning against the wall, Mike crossed his arms. “Background intelligence can be pretty misleading on an off limits world like this one.”
I LOVE and appreciate your comments….
