Welcome to another Sunday
Writing Warriors. Meet writers in various genres and
read 8-10 sentence snippets of their stories.
Sorry, I skipped last weekend, but I’ll flip to another scene
from my latest novel set on Jupiter’s moon, Europa.
Tag line: Daredevil scientist and scarred alien in
Bell’s plan to discover intelligent life in the oceans of Europa hits a rocky
start when her spaceship crashes on the icy surface. Seconds before she blacks
out, she spies a man’s face in the water beneath the ice. When she wakes on the
submarine Station, nobody believes her story. Convinced the mysterious stranger
saved her life, Nikki searches for him while she explores the ocean and its
Arqin Ramis chose exile as a Watcher on a remote outpost to redeem his family’s
honor. He never expected to find an attractive Earther woman close to death. He
violates the prime policy by rescuing her. Despite suffering the penalty, he
strives to warn her about his hostile leaders.
unexpected meeting with Kiron triggers a chain of disasters in Europa’s
perilous oceans. Can the daredevil scientist and scarred Watcher forge a new
alliance despite their people’s antagonism?
Book 1 in a
new SciFi series, Taxyon Space.
In my last excerpts, Nikki learned about the mysterious
disappearance of her predecessor on Bathos and sightings of possible “mermen”.
Today, I’ll gie you another glimpse of the hero’s life as a Watcher.
I’ve edited the excerpt to fit. Please excuse my abuse of
In a submarine chamber on another
quadrant of the ocean, a lone bare-chested man stood in front of four people
sitting on low benches arranged in a semicircle. Kiron had been summoned to the
tribunal soon after he entered the base. Two of his interrogators were present
in person, and two were holograms of individuals viewing the scene from a
distant location. The three white-haired elders bore the trident symbol of the
Triarchs on their faces; they wore loose white tunics and their feet were bare.
Overwarder Kalpar, a tall man
with a stern expression, said, “Underwarder Kiron Arqin Ramis, you are
reprimanded for disobeying our rules.” His bicolored hair and matching gold and
brown stripes below his left eye signified his membership in the Gold Band
Standing erect and silent, Kiron
wished he had been given time to dress properly; the elders would disapprove of
his naked chest. Even the two Triarchs judging him remotely were well able to
appraise his appearance via the interstellar quantel. Their holographic eyes
fixed on him in a deliberately unnerving manner, although they did not move.
His trial was not worth the expense of a live transmission.
