I, Effing Feline, find today’s snippet inspiring. Invading an alien world … sigh. My fur rises at the very idea. I’m sure the invading spaceships in the snippet are being flown by fearsome felines. After all, everybody knows that George Lucas stole the idea for Star Wars from cats.
Here’s the inspiring snippet from Ed’s WIP, Secrets of Love and War. Cynthia O’Connor is accompanying an alien clan sister, Kaushelle, to Peace to All Species Park when war with Earth breaks out.
“War was promised never to reach the capital,” Kaushelle screamed — but the screech of sirens and the pounding of explosions put the lie to that promise.
What to do? For several heart-thumping moments, the cacophony of war drove rational thought from Cynthia’s mind. Then she knew.
Get Kaushelle to safety. Guard the girl with her own life.
The gloomy sky flashed a blinding white, then red, then rumbled with an angry series of explosions. Bombs or debris from an air battle might fall on them in the open; it wasn’t safe here. The familiium’s prime directive was to take care of each other, so she must keep the girl safe, must.
But Kaushelle darted back to pick up the hollow reeds they’d gathered to make primitive flutes for her music class.
Effing Feline here again. Do you doubt what I said about felines and Star Wars? Hiss unto you, disbeliever! Click below and learn THE TRUTH!
