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. Picking up from last week’s snippet.
A sudden chill ran through Gregor. “Master,” he said softly, “who was the vampire that you dueled?”
Kaen’s eyes closed and he shook his head. “I can almost see, but not quite…”
“It’s all right, Master, it will come back in time.”
“You think the two are connected, don’t you? My duel and what happened to you and Sergiu.”
“I think they might be.”
Kaen felt a wave of what he could only describe as nausea. “If… if I have done anything to cause harm to any of my people…”
“Any harm, Master,” Gregor said softly, “was not of your doing.”
Kaen wrapped his arms around him and pulled him against him, holding him tightly. “Thank you for that,” he whispered.
