Don't Take Any Chances! Snippet from Starrella Falls for #WeWriWa #Supergirl + FREE ebooks

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

I’m continuing the scene from: Starrella Falls, Book 2 in the Secret Supers, until the end of this chapter. Then, I’ll begin to post snippets from Book 3. You can read the first chapters of Starrella Falls HERE.

Background: Estelle and Toby are superheroes and their telepathic animal partners are Rockette, the flying mare, and Growler, the jaguar.
Toby knocks out the wanted murderer, Croaker, and Mark Copper offers to take Croaker to the police station. Instead, Estelle and Toby discover Mark is driving north, probably to Dupree Air Base.
The last line, spoken by Toby, was: “I’m going after Copper.”
With apologies for creative punctuation to fit the sentence limit.

Flinging her arms around him, Estelle cried, “Don’t take any chances, Toby! Take me with you; I don’t want to lose you.” 
“Don’t fuss; I’ll be on guard. Bigger headache too; have to chat with my pal, Joth. Can’t have the army discovering Croaker’s an alien; would start an uproar. Reckon it ain’t good for Farleons or Zarnoths.”
Pulling out his phone, Toby drawled, “Goin’ to call him now.” Touching the screen, he grunted a greeting. After a pause while he listened, he spoke rapidly in a strange language. Farli, Estelle presumed, since she did not understand a word.

Now, Estelle has good reason to be worried. Only a week earlier, she rescued Toby after he was captured by Croaker’s henchmen. You try rescuing a hunky guy who can’t walk!

    1. Of course. Croaker is big trouble, but there is a happy ending. Sort of.

  3. He sees confident, but I'm with Estelle on this one.

    1. I agree. Overconfidence can get him into trouble.

  4. Don't fuss. I'll be on guard - yea - yea - yea. He's about to get into trouble and she's going to have to get him out - which makes for a great story :-) Tweeted.

    1. Thanks! Although, it doesn't turn out quite like you're imagining.

  5. He's very confident but she's worried and she's known him a long time. He's probably going to get in trouble. :D

    1. She had to rescue him before. But, she has learned about him and his strange secret life gradually over the past months.

  6. A fast-paced snippet here! I'm confident he's doing the right thing :D

  7. I agree he should take her with him.

    (And, yes, the army discovering that Croaker's an alien would not be a good thing. I still don't trust that that's where Mark is taking him, though.)

  8. I think Estelle is right to be worried. What trouble is Toby going to get into next?

    1. Maybe not as much as the trouble she rescued him from.

  9. I like his distinctive speech patterns.

    1. It's part of his cover and fits with the hot biker/gangster image.

  10. He seems quite sure of himself, but I'd go with him just to be safe.

  11. He's too overconfident--which is probably why he needs a babysitter! LOL! She better keep an eye on him.

  12. There's a lot going on here. I hope no one discovers he's an alien.

    1. Of course, Toby's an alien too and genetically engineered to look human.

    1. Thank you!
      I like a lot of action in my stories.

  14. She might be right to be worried. The banter seems realistic and her concern rings through.

  16. Lots going on ... i've got to catch up on the previous snippets to be up-to-date :-)

  17. I think he better play on the safe side and let her come along. Rockette is still following, right? She can make an excuse to come.

  18. I think Toby is a bit too reckless.
