Weekend Writing Warriors~ Proud and Terrified

wewriwa

Welcome to another exciting episode of Weekend Writing Warriors!  I’m inching my way, eight lines by eight lines, to the exciting conclusion of The Call To Adventure Chapter of my erotic space opera, From Mars, With Love.  Last week, faced with having certain beloved body parts forcibly removed, our hero Eli took a wild gamble and made a break for it.  Pandemonium ensued.

The doors hissed open and a phalanx of guards charged in. Eli grabbed a confused asteroider and used him as a shield, avoiding the first blast of a generalized stun gun. Asteroiders as well as prisoners slumped to the ground and the shock wave seemed to have an ill effect on the crabs. Several started to spin and collide.

“For Chriton’s sake, don’t use the electric wave in here!” cried one of the guards. They too appeared confused. Eli had the distinct impression this had never happened to them before. He felt proud as well as terrified as he snatched a syringe hose and plunged it into the chest of an onrushing guard. He picked up the guard’s dropped weapon as he climbed over the body.

Then we hop to our fellow warriors’ blogs and check out all the fabulous fiction that’s happening! I heartily invite you to participate as a reader, writer, or both.

  1. They’re making a lot of mistakes, suddenly. He’d better get while the getting’s good!

    In that picture, it’s odd that only Daniel has a weapon, and the rest are making guns with their hands, isn’t it?
