#ScienceFiction snippet from Ocean Planet of Grand Master's Mate for #WeWriWa



Welcome to another Sunday with Weekend Writing Warriors. Here, writers in different genres showcase their stories with 8-10 sentences. Join the fun and read our snippets.

Today, I’m continuing the ocean scene today from my new release Grand Master’s Mate. This scene started last week and you can read it here - http://auroraspringer.blogspot.com/2015/12/sciencefiction-seashell-snippet-from.html

Touching her fingers to the corrugated outer shell, Violet sent, “Callama, we have names; I’m Violet and the bigger four limbs is Griffin. Three limbs is called Threeleaf Amarylla.”  
Vil, Val, Violet speaks to Callama,” the shell animal hummed its reply.
“Excellent,” Athanor said, hearing the words through his psychic link with Violet, “we have a second translator.”
Raising her delicate hands in surprise, Ravaleen cried, “What do you mean? We cannot speak directly with the Callama.”
“Powered pawn speaks to animals,” Amarylla chimed.
“A splendid talent,” Ravaleen sang.
Radiating pride, Athanor growled, “Just so. My pawn is special.”


To celebrate completion of the Trilogy, Grand Master’s Pawn is only 99c this month

    1. It would be easier to follow in a longer passage, or if you know the characters.

  9. I really liked the conversation they all had. You really had to pay attention to what was being said, much as the characters would have to. Also, I really enjoyed that last line. :)
