I'm still featuring my work in progress, The Grosjean Chronicles. The story revolves around Captain Alanis Grosjean, a Space Marine (featured briefly in book 2 of my Lancaster Trilogy). She's a no-nonsense, fire-breathing lady with beguiling elfin feautres who has an unpredictable temper and poops out nails. Capt. Grosjean's mission in this tale is to capture the notorious space pirate Norstrom and his crew on board the Drunken Sailor...
In this scene, Capt. Grosjean and her team discover a message from the pirate Norstrom, and we have Dr. Mica's POV as he witnesses Grosjean's reaction. I might add that Mica is a little infatuated with her...
Grosjean took a breath; she’d been taking a lot of them since they found the message stuck to the underside of the agrostation. A magnetic message sticker, one of those fanciful ones that came in different shapes and designs. This one took the form of a man’s penis, so that when you slid your finger down its shaft, it played back the recorded message.
Captain Norstrom had left her a very crude and cocky message, filled with many ‘darlings’ and ‘love bunnys’ and ‘sweehearts.’ A literal taunt and a dare to catch him if she could, and quote, “…just like old times, my Petunia.”
Mica could’ve sworn she nearly paled after hearing the recording the patrol found. In fact, she looked nauseous. He shuffled a little closer, unable to resist being near her. Then he realized she might clock him in the eye, so he froze.
