Six Sentence Sunday #59

Hello! Welcome to another #sixsunday post. I've been out of circulation for a while, and thought I'd return with a snippet of my up-coming release, a science fiction romance short story titled Terms & Conditions Apply. Be warned, there is bad language at the start as my female MC Marie isn't happy. Enjoy!



"Fuck you, Jaisen Ty-Reen!"
"Was that a statement of intent, or purely a curse?"
Marie jerked her gaze upward to meet that of the man before her, then reassessed her first thought. This was no normal man. Although the impossibly deep, almost indigo blue of his eyes held her, she noted the silvery sheen of his skintight one-piece with the logo VASA at the shoulder that marked him as one of Venus Ascendant’s subsidiary avatars. Her distress at Jaisen’s message had no doubt sparked the AI into an immediate response—that kind of emotional hit on its empathic sensors would not have been missed, although it was probably equivalent to no more than a poke in the eye.


If you enjoyed that and want more, you can check out the blurb under the Coming Soon tab above or jump to the post directly below for another snippet.

  4. Hmm, sounds like some hottie AI lovin' is coming her way. Wonder if he or it is always that tuned in to her emotions and what it takes to do more than poke him in the eye, emotionally?
