More from Onyx Sun, a science fiction novel currently in second round edits, which are sort of on hold while I do Camp NaNoWriMo with a goal of 62,000 words this month.
Skipping ahead a few lines from last week, Taliya has handed Aelind Osbert a file she was carrying.
“Please see that Maureena gets this. It’s the report from my trip to Roseeba Seven and the contract with the Miners’ Consortium there.”
He frowned as he took it from her. “Why do you not give it to her yourself?”
“As you are no doubt already aware I will not be returning to her home. She knows that I am leaving it with you.”
He looked flustered as he took it from her, her words having thrown him off center again.
“Is there anything else?” she asked, keeping her tone cool.
“No. That was all I had for you, Miss Swann.”
She rose and so did he, and she allowed him to escort her to the door of his office.
“Good day, Miss Swann.”
“Good bye, Mr. Osbert. I doubt you’ll be hearing from me again.”
He nodded and opened the door for her.
As the elevator doors closed Taliya knew that he was already calling her mother to report on her visit.
As always, comments are loved!
