Sunday Excerpt — November 24, 2013

More from Sanguine, a science fiction novel (still in progress) with elements of semi-paranormal M/M romance.

(This is still a work in progress and the following lines have been hacked and recombined and creatively punctuated to fit into 10 sentences.)

Picking up from last week, Kaen has accepted Gregor’s offer of blood and fed from him, and Gregor’s last sensation was that of falling into an endless blackness.

 

Gregor woke in a bed in a strange room.  He was cold… so cold.  He tried to sit up but could only stir weakly.

“Lie still.” 

The voice was warm and full of concern and he turned his head and closed his eyes as the room spun around him.  Cautiously opening them again he found a pair of dark blue eyes gazing into his own. “Captain?”  he whispered.

Kaen put a gentle hand on his head and Gregor felt himself relaxing, cares slipping away.  “I am sorry,” Kaen said softly.  “So sorry.”  He stroked the blond hair, savoring the silky feel of it.  “I lost control.  I drank too much.”  He bowed his head. “I nearly killed you.”
