 This snippet is from Emmily, Unbound, an SFR story. Emmily is on a supply run, and Adren is with her this time.  

Last week's snippet ended with:  

     My heart feels like it’s skipping beats when I picture General’s body. Yeah. My brain went there. Straight to there. 

     Stop it, Emmily. Just stop…

The Snippet:    

     I get my head back on track, back to the task-at-hand, getting through this grocery run without incident. What can go wrong with this shopping trip?

     I look over Adren one more time. That boy is a junior stud. His hair is pulled up into a top knot and tucked inside one of my dad’s old Pittsburgh Pirates ball caps. He has a Penguins tee-shirt on. If I could’ve found different pants that fit him, he wouldn’t be wearing his stained uniform trousers. 

     Still, the flawless angles remain: the aquiline nose, his chin and jawline… not too much, not too little, perfect even for Goldilocks. All that on top of a six-foot two frame. I sigh.

Read on to finish the scene:

      He'll be memorable to most who see him, but not in a way that will mark him as not being from around here, and I mean really not from around here.

 That's it for this week. Thank you so much for visiting and for reading. :-)


  1. She's really beginning to see these "aliens" in a different way. And her mind is very much struggling with that.

  2. LOL - I mean really not from around here.
    Great job at showing she's having trouble accepting the idea.

  3. Yeah, he'll be memorable all right--to all the ladies at least. Desirable, but not alien, so they should be safe. Right?

  4. 'What can go wrong...' Never a good question to ask, because you'll probably find out. ;)

  5. I have a feeling something will go wrong LOL. Great snippet!

  6. I suppose it would be hard to remain clear-headed and logical when your captors are all super hot stud aliens. I'm enjoying her discomfort!

  7. I'd assumed her romantic interest would be Genrae -- but this snippet makes me rethink that a little.

  8. Of course, something will go wrong. :) Adren sounds like a hunk, too.

  9. All of her "visitors" appear to be nice looking men.

  10. The calm before the storm. You think nothing should go wrong but then it does. lol Sounds like she finds this alien attractive. Is he going to be a love interest? I look forward to reading more to find out.

  11. Yep, I think something's about to go wrong. Something that will make Hot Alien Guy even more memorable to everyone.

  12. Never ask what can go wrong. You'll never like the answer.
