Once again, another snippet from my other WIP, To Catch A Marlin - A futuristic cat and mouse chase involving Special Inspector Michael Pedroni and the vigilante he chases, Jax Marlin...who he has become smitten with. Well, Jax is quite beautifully exotic, as vigilante's go.
In this scene, we find Jax having a 'chillaxing' moment in her hotel room on the Bacchus Dome (that's in outer space)...
The room smelled of disinfectant and fresh laundry. A good smell. A safe smell.
Hospitals smelled like that, they were good places, they made you better, stronger…
Jax Marlin smiled to herself as she cracked open a bottle of beer and took a deep, long gulp. She tossed her jacket on the floor, glad she didn’t have to be neat, glad she didn’t have to remember to be neat. Leading a double life was nothing short of a pain in the ass.
Glad that’s over with. She chuckled to herself and dropped into the couch, slouching, and propped a leg on the coffee table. Her hard boot heel made a clunking noise on the smooth surface; she loosened the belt buckle and let out a beery burp. It had been a long day. Recon work usually was.
