Today, I'm back to my WIP, To Catch A Marlin. I'm happy to say that the first draft is complete, and now I'm diving back into it for an encore. I'm hoping to send this into the hands of beta's before the middle of the month.
For those out of the loop, To Catch A Marlin is a futuristic cat and mouse tale between Special Inspector Pedroni and the vigilante Jax Marlin, who just happens to be a super sexy woman with ninja skills.
In this scene, Jax has 'infiltrated' into a baddies lair...it's pretty self-explanatory.
A thick-necked aide opened the door with a scowling frown, which didn’t improve his sour look in the least. To wipe his features clean of it, Jax rammed a fist right between his eyes. He staggered backwards in surprise. Before he could recover, she braced her hands on the doorframe, hoisted herself up, and kicked him in the jaw. She heard a crack, his jaw breaking, and as he crashed to the ground, a spew of blood flew out his mouth.
Turning back to face the door, she nudged the sentry droid she’d been holding upright earlier, out the way—it slumped sideways before shackling out into three pieces. Jax closed the door, and with purpose, marched across the spacious living area the Bacchus House’s penthouse suites offered its privileged guests, and tackled another lackey who darted out the plush kitchen with a butcher’s knife. He launched it in her direction; she tipped her body sideways before catapulting herself towards him in a forward flip, then did a half-skip bounce before a long-jump leap.
As she soared through the air, she pulled out her auto-cuffs and flung them at the man.
