Brave Kitty! Snippet from Grand Master's Cat for #WeWriWa #SciFi

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.

Since several of you were worried about the fate of the kitten in last week’s snippet, I’ll continue the scene from my short SciFi prequel, Grand Master’s Cat.
The kitty “saved” the Grand Master from the sting of a giant scorpion.
The final sentence was: Tottering under the psi blast, the scorpion staggered two steps and collapsed onto the desert sand.

The Grand Master chopped through its neck with a laser-sharp ray, and left his attacker. He ran to the cat, amazed that such a small animal had the courage to attack the giant scorpion. He lifted the limp kitten and ruffled its fur, searching for wounds with his psi probe. When he moved its left foreleg, the kitten whimpered. Sensing the mineral of the bones, the Griffin located a break. He sat beside the kitten and crooned to it. This simple fracture was within his ability to repair by sealing the gap in the bone. 
While his psi energy bathed the tiny limb, the friendly cat rubbed its head against his hand and purred. Astonished by the cat’s lack of fear at his psychic emanations, he whispered, “Brave kitty!” The cat mewed and licked the Griffin’s fingers, apparently enjoying the tickle of psi power.

  12. Such a sweet scene. I like how you've revealed the Grand Master's almost childlike ability to emote. Nicely done!

    1. The Grand Master's raw emissions are usually lethal. He doesn't have much opportunity for close contact.
