Sunday Excerpt — December 22, 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.)

If you want to pick up from the beginning, I started weekly excerpts from this in October.

Skipping a bit from last week, Gregor has been drifting in and out of sleep and is finally fully conscious.  Asking Kaen how long he has been there, he learns that it has been five days, and panics, as he was supposed to report back to the refitters’ shop after the inspection.


Kaen chuckled and kissed him, and everything else faded from his mind as he clung to the vampire’s arms for support, losing himself in the feel of his lips.   

“You resigned,” Kaen said softly.  “You signed on with me, remember?” 

“Yes, but…”

“Do not worry.  It has all been taken care of.” 

Kaen’s voice was soft and soothing and as he kissed him again Gregor’s mind floated away, cares falling and fading…

No, part of him said.  This isn’t right. This isn’t how it’s supposed to be.  With an effort he pulled his mind back to the present.  “Master.”
