Weekend Writing Warriors ~ This is Earth, not the Oort!

wewriwa

Welcome to another exciting episode of Weekend Writing Warriors!  Spring is in full bloom here in Oregon, I finished my latest WIP and started a new job. Things are looking much rosier here on Earth than they are in space.

I’m posting from my m/m erotic space opera From Mars, With Love and will continue torturing my hero until I reach the end of the chapter.  Last week we left poor Eli being prepared for stasis by two of the slavers: an asteroider (altered-human) and a floating, multi-armed robot called a crab.  The crab noticed the ring on Eli’s finger and took a disliking to it.

“Leave it,” the asteroider said.

“I’ve analyzed it and do not recognize the metal compound. It might interfere with the electronics in the pod.” The crab kept trying to twist it loose and Eli feared the bot might rip his hand off along with the ring.

“What do you mean you don’t recognize it? This is earth, not the Oort! Well, fine, cut it off. We can always grow him a new finger.”

Eli wishes he was this tough. Maybe Harrison will show up and rescue him!

 

Eeep!  I wish I could post the whole scene, I really do, but rules are rules.

By the way, you can still enter to win a Loose Id gift card and a copy of Touch of Salar at the giveaway for my Book Tour.  Blood  received 5 Star/Heart Reviews from two of the blogs on the tour so far! Check it out here.

  1. That’s a terrifying predicament! Reminds me of the story my eighth grade Spanish teacher told about watching some criminal cut off a woman’s finger for her ring on the New York City subway.

  2. Eeekkk!?! Oh my, you’re such a cliff-hanger tease! Lol, fabulous snippet. I’m keeping my fingers and toes crossed that Eli can keep his ring and his finger…and now I’m curious where it’s coming from.
    Great picture;).
