I’m posting excerpts from Baswin, the fifth book in my Sci-Fi Romance series, Taxyon Space. The main characters are an alien merman and two psychic sisters. By the end of the story, the elder sister (Holly) will match up with the alien (Baswin).
You can read last week’s snippet at – https://auroraspringer.blogspot.com/2021/06/an-invitation-for-moon-sisters-excerpt.html
Moon sisters have just received an invitation to “undergo a critical assessment
of your paranormal abilities.”
Wrinkling her forehead, Holly looked at her sister. “It’s a strange letter.”
Rosie cocked her head and murmured, “What do you think?”
Holly stared at the neatly printed lines of the letter. “It’s phrased as a polite invitation for some unspecified important international business. But we haven’t been offered a choice. There’s no request for a reply. No com code given for any questions.”
“It’s a puzzle. Should we go?” Rosie’s eyes brightened in anticipation.
Ten sentences and you can read a little more:
“I don’t know.” Holly frowned at the letter. “How on earth did this Braithwaite find out about our psychic abilities? Only a handful of people believe in our talents. Even our neighbors in the village are skeptical. They joke about our quaint notions.”
“Not all of them,” Rosie said. “Dr. Greene believes my healing touch helps her patients to recover. And Sergeant Powell trusts you to find missing people.”
Checking the date on her com, Holly said, “We’ll soon find out. Tomorrow’s the fifteenth.”
Rosie scrunched up her lips in disapproval. “They didn’t give us much time to prepare.”
“No time to scarper,” Holly joked.
“Well, I’m going for the interview,” Rosie said in a decisive tone. “I’d love to have a free trip to the city.”
Holly shrugged. “Okay. We might as well go. If only to learn why the guys at the Ministry for International Affairs are so keen to assess our paranormal skills.”
