More from Sanguine, a science fiction novel (still in progress) with elements of semi-paranormal M/M romance.
(I am done with beta readers, and Sanguine is in next-to-final-edit stage, so this is still a work in progress and the following lines may or may not have been hacked and recombined and creatively punctuated to fit into 10 sentences.)
Skipping ahead a bit to start introducing some other characters – and a few bits of Gregor’s past. In this post, Kaen and Gregor have gone to clean out Gregor’s quarters on the station. Kaen has been looking through a photo album while Gregor packs.
“How long have you been gone?”
“Six years, Master. I left when I was sixteen, traveling with my Uncle Sergiu.”
“What happened?” Kaen asked, hearing an odd note in Gregor’s voice.
“He…” He took a deep breath. “It is a long story, Master.”
Gregor sighed. “We were in the Kirril quadrant, and we got caught up in one of the spats between the Solovei and the Erid’thu. We were safe enough – we were passengers on board a Paragon class trader – but when we went planet-side we… We landed just before an assault team of Erid’thu.”
“He was killed?”
“Not… not right away.”
