Six Sentence Sunday

This Sunday’s excerpt is from an SFR  WIP 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….

“I can’t ride off with you on literally a moment’s notice. And why is your Sector Command issuing orders concerning me anyway?”

The captain got up from his chair in one smooth motion, like a great cat uncurling, paced to the fireplace and back, then half sat on the edge of a sturdy table.

I bet he’s a person in constant motion – discussing anything in patient detail doesn’t appear to be his style. Well, I’m not one of his soldiers and I don’t take orders from him, so he had better explain himself.

Standing again, he drew himself up to his full height, at least a foot taller than Andi, and glared at her, “In case you haven’t heard, this entire planet is about to be embroiled in a devastating war.”

  1. Thank you very much for the comments! Yes they do start off butting heads more than a little, LOL. I’m hoping to sub this book in the VERY near future so all feedback very welcome as always 🙂

  2. What a great set-up to both these characters. He’s a panther/savior and she’s an independent woman who doesn’t take orders well. Love it.
