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.
I am continuing a scene from an older story, my space operetta, Captured by the Hawk. This story is included in my latest release, Comet Tales.
Tag line: Spaceships crash across the galaxy in the comic misadventures of spy Grey Kat and pirate Black Hawk.
After stealing secret codes from the Emperor's Revenge, Grey Kat was caught by Black Hawk’s crewmen and taken onto his spaceship. Captain Hawk has just recognized her face. She is Mistress Trina Sligo, daughter of the Solarian ambassador, Master Fingal Sligo.

He stiffened suddenly and his eyes narrowed in suspicion, “Are you not betrothed to the Emperor’s younger son?”
Trina shrugged dismissively. Clearly, Black Hawk disliked the fawning prince. She shared his distaste. “We are not betrothed,” she stated with a strong emphasis on the word “not.” Perversely, she found the masked Hawk a hundred times more attractive than the young prince with his cosmetically enhanced features. She explained, “Prince Alvin courts Mistress Sligo assiduously. It gives her easy access to the Emperor’s palace and much of his imperial sector.”
“I do not trust the Emperor,” he murmured, “and it seems, neither do the Solarians.”
Comet Tales is an anthology of 4 short stories and the novella, Captured by the Hawk.
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.
