I’m back with another snippet for this WEWRIWA (Weekend Writing Warriors) thing.
To meet some new authors, read some great writing, or join in the 8-sentence fun, stop by at Weekend Writing Warriors!
This scene is from just before my 5th & 6th WeWriWa snippets, where Roger is just hoping to get to his holiday in one piece, but a navy blockade has other plans.
Claxons blared, and radar-blips rose from the enemy line like bees from a rock-smacked hive.
“Missiles inbound,” warned my ship’s computer, “So if you’re not too busy, now would be a good time to prevent our destruction.”
“Very well, battle stations!”
“With what crew? If you’ll recall, you marooned everyone, which makes me a one-droid-show: loading, shooting, steering, stoking-”
I banged my fist on the holo-deck, and thought fine then. If you want something done right…
I laid both hands on the wheel and flexed my neural implants, until suddenly I was the ship, seeing the stars and feeling the cold of space around me.
That’s it for this week’s eight. Looking forward to checking out what everyone else has posted!
