SFR Brigade Presents #7
I’m guilty of a gap in postings. *sigh* But I’m back again with another excerpt of my science fiction romance. My hero Quinn discovers his new bodyguard Eve is not a happy camper when he disappears before she’s had her coffee.
I’d gone to the sideboard to pour a second cup when the door swung open and slammed the wall. Helmet in hand, Eve strode in, fury boiling from every inch of her tall black figure.
“You left without notifying me,” she snapped.
Her armor was fully hardened, accenting every curve. I lowered my cup to the counter, keeping my eyes on her face. It was a struggle. Between that and coming up with a response that was both authoritative and not off-putting, I didn’t have a chance.
“If I am to guard you, Minister Quinn, you cannot wander willy-nilly. Communication is key to safety. Not just telling me what to do, but including me in your plans.”
Evard rose and came to fill his cup. He elbowed me. “Best course of action is to say you’re sorry. And ‘It won’t happen again.’”
Eve shot him a look of pure disgust, but I parroted, “Sorry. It won’t happen again.”
The disgust shifted to me. “Have you nothing to say for yourself?”
Thanks for the visit! Please check out my fellow posters on the SFR Brigade at the blog, or our hashtag #sfrpb.
