First, thank you (again) to all who commented on last week’s snippet and gave feedback and advice. It’s been jotted down to fix when I get there in editing. (I’m sorry I didn’t get to reply to posts — it’s been a rough week at work. Again.)
More from Sanguine, a science fiction novel (still being edited) with elements of semi-paranormal M/M romance.
(The following lines may or may not have been hacked and recombined and creatively punctuated to fit into 10 sentences.)
Gregor is escorting Murray onto the ship – I’ve skipped a few sentences from last week. Murray was surprised (and a little shaken) to find Gregor on board the ship.)
“Murray.” Gregor stopped walking and turned the younger man to face him. “You have nothing to fear here, I promise.”
Murray looked up at him and for a brief moment the wary look in his eyes was replaced by a glimmer of hope that disappeared almost before it was there, and he shook his head, slumping forward again.
“You know Trini wouldn’t have asked you to come here if it was a bad place,” Gregor said softly. “And you know I wouldn’t have let you come here if it was a bad place.”
Murray swallowed and nodded slightly.
“And you know I will protect you. I will always protect you.”
Murray hung his head and nodded, his face reddening.
