Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday (SFFSat) is a place where a bunch of us post snippets from our written works and also shoot the breeze a little. And before I get ahead of myself, thanks and appreciation as always to those who stop by and leave fantastic comments.
Next, we have what happens after...
That chilly thing that walks down your spine, ran down mine. I swallowed, not particularly wanting to turn around, and in fact, I wanted to play the typical damsel in distress by simply screaming for no reason. Instead, I found some mild comfort in staring at Mason, who conveyed all my sudden fears.
A low growl and waft of hot air brushing up my back was motivation enough for both of us to squawk. Instinct kicked in, and without looking back, I lunged forward, grabbed Mason and propelled us both as far away from whatever creature that just blew me a kiss.
We rolled across the dusty floor, Mason rigid in my arms. It didn’t help, considering he was nearly twice my weight and carried most of our expedition gear. I cursed him. I cursed whatever breathed on us. Loudly.
