Six Sentence Sunday – Science Fiction Adventure Never Ending

First let me apologize to all my fellow Sixers – I actually moved a week ago Saturday – not just the preparation, but  the load-up-the-truck-we’re-really-moving – and wow, life went totally out of control, so I never got to read and comment on everyone else’s fun excerpts last Sunday. This week I’m going to REVEL in reading and commenting, to make up for last week. Unpacking boxes can WAIT. Thank you very much, everyone, for visiting my page last week and commenting.

So, on with the excerpt….

Set in the same universe as my 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. 

We’ve been through Tom’s near fatal illness, his recovery (but no spoilers about how that was accomplished)….(did teasers about their romantic encounter LOL)…lately, Andi was in imminent danger of death at the hands of the rebels…but we got past that…

Now a different kind of problem presents itself as Tom, Andi and Sgt. Wilson find an abandoned groundcar on the road…and Andi made it clear last week she knew the car’s owner…

“No sign of a body,” Mitch said, darting an uneasy look her way.

Leaning over, Tom tried the door, finding the locks unyielding. “We could blast it open but the electronics would be ruined and what I want most from this vehicle is a working com link.”

Andi eyed her captain warily for a long moment, drawing in a deep breath to fortify herself, and said, “I can open it for you.”

“You drove his personal car – how close were the two of you?”

It’s really none of his business who I was involved with before I met him.

I LOVE and appreciate your comments….

    • LOL, I surely do need a break from the unpacking but also, if I don’t do it, no one else will – certainly not the cats! But it felt so nice to get back to reading the Sunday sixes!

  1. Got a little jealousy going on…does he?

    I can empathize with moving. We did that last fall (halfway across the country). Get to do it again this fall. Then we’re settled for a while. Moving takes a lot out of you.

  2. My thanks to everyone for the kind words about moving AND the snippet – glad the scene worked for most people. I figure even in a crisis situation, jealousy can rear its head. And Tom and Andi may be in love by now, but they still don’t actually know each other – not saying there won’t be an HEA (of COURSE there will be LOL) but sometimes there are bumps in the road. Stay tuned for more!
