#ScienceFiction Snippet from 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 scene on the ocean planet from my new release Grand Master’s Mate. By this stage, the Grand Master, Athanor, has learned not to trust entirely to his powers since their enemies can nullify them. In this scene, he and Violet wear protective underwater suits with air and jetpacks. Amarylla looks like a giant flower with three pink petals and gangling roots. Callama is a clam shell with a central membrane forming a sail.

“Brightness will cling to the outer shell,” Amarylla agreed.
The orange Bollerol slid to the base of the boat and the two halves of the shell closed. Amarylla’s roots coiled around the shell. Tipping on end, Callama sank below the waves, dragging the two Grand Masters and Violet under the water.
Translucent green water surrounded them and lines of bubbles drifted in the wake of the great shell. Strange slow songs of the sea creatures washed against Violet’s senses. The green ocean darkened as they descended farther from the sunlit surface.
As they swam deeper, the quiet waters were threaded with thin cries of terror.
I sense the attackers are below us,” Violet informed Athanor.

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