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.)
Introducing some other characters – and a few bits of Gregor’s past.
Kaen and Gregor are still on the station, making their way back to the ship when they run into an old friend of Gregor’s. Kaen unnerved her so Gregor stepped away to talk to her for a moment.
“Captain, I’d like you to meet Trini Valcour. She’d like to sign on with us.”
Kaen studied her for a moment, curious about this friend of Gregor’s. She was maybe five feet tall and he doubted that she weighed ninety pounds fully clothed and soaking wet. Wide grey-blue eyes regarded him from a creamy olive face.
“In what capacity?” he asked.
“Anything, really, I…”
“No,” Gregor said firmly and she fell silent. He looked at Kaen. “Trini is the best engineer I’ve ever worked with, sir.”
“Good enough for me,” Kaen said easily. “Welcome aboard, Trini.”
Her eyes widened. “You mean it? Just like that?” She looked from one to the other as if expecting it to be some sort of joke.
