I'm working on edits for Emmily, Unbound--the book I've been sharing excerpts from for a long time. While I'm doing that, I'm going to share snippets from a WIP entitled Across the Night Sky.
This is an Alien Abduction Romance.
abducted human, 20-something, woke with no idea where she was. After
running from the
metal box she woke up inside, she
finds an open doorway. She stepped through and discovered she wasn't
alone. She's with an injured 'alien' man, Kuylerh. I'm in a new chapter.
Kuylerh's rescue has arrived an once again, she's being abducted, but
this time it's by his group.The man ordered to carry her is not happy
about it. She tried stopping him and he's set her down.
Last week's snippet ended with:“I don’t want to be here either. I just want to go home. Please. Help me get home.” Then tears poured down her cheeks.
We pick up there:
She looked back the way they’d just come, longing for the familiarity of the semi-darkness and the attacking beasts.
Man-eaters over being rescued? That settled it; she was losing her mind.
Just that split second of looking away and it was too late. She didn’t see the next trick coming.
The guard’s hand flew up, lifting a small bottle toward her. There was no time to react before he sprayed it right into her face.
It didn’t burn. At least it wasn’t pepper spray.
Awe shit; things could get worse.
The room started spinning and her knees buckled. She was heading for the floor when he lifted her again, this time carrying her in front of him. The three remaining guards escorted them, re-forming a perimeter.Alrighty...she's going whether or not she wants to. That's it for this week. Thanks for visiting. Comments are deeply appreciated.
