Grey Kay meets Black Hawk in Snippet for #WeWriWa #SciFi #Comic Space Operetta

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.

For a change of scenery, I am switching to a scene from an older story, my space operetta, Captured by the Hawk. This novella is included in my new release, Comet Tales.

 Hawk


Tag line: Spaceships crash across the galaxy in the comic misadventures of spy Grey Kat and pirate Black Hawk.
          The two main characters meet in this snippet. Grey Kat has been caught trespassing near a ship. (Punctuation adjusted to fit.)

Two armed men escorted her through the ship’s narrow passages into a large cabin. A tall man stood by a table displaying star charts; a man clothed entirely in black, even his face was wrapped in folds of black cloth, exposing only his piercing green eyes.
His voice was cold, “My men claim you are the thief who stole the secret codes from the Emperor’s Revenge. Where are the codes?”
Tilting her chin in defiance, she stared back without speaking. Who was he to question her?
“I am the Black Hawk. You are on my ship, the Rogue Star, and utterly in my power. I recommend you tell me what you know.” His deep voice sent a shiver down her spine.

 Comet Tales

My new release is an anthology of 4 short stories and a novella.
99c until March 15th
Comet Tales: Trudge over the rocks of Mars, trek through a hazardous alien jungle, or pop across the galaxy in a pirate ship in five fun tales of adventure and romance.

  3. He's an arrogant SOB who has a lot to learn. Unless he's a minor characters, I'm betting he'll learn it all, too.

    1. Isn't he arrogant? But she is stuck on his spacecraft, so in that sense, he is correct.

    1. He is definitely intriguing. He doesn't bare anything except for his green eyes and Kat keeps trying to see what's under his mask.
