Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!
Thank you to everyone who commented last week on my snippet from GIB AND THE TIBBAR. It was originally published as part of the Pets in Space 2 anthology, but is now available on its own. I’m going to stick with this story for the rest of this month.
Set-up: In the last snippet from this story, Gib came out of a wormhole after Vilarra called him to help his intoxicated friend. Now, Vilarra is handing him the bucket of cold water and cloth that he asked for. Enjoy… (creative punctuation used to make it fit)
“Thank you.” Gib took the items from her then turned to his friend. Supporting the bucket with both hands, he dumped all the water over the Defender’s head then tossed the cloth at him. “Clean yourself up; you’re a disgrace to all Defenders.”
“C’mon, Gib.” Zair wiped some water from his face. “I was drinkin’ wif the king. Was i-vi-tid.”
“And you failed to show up for your shift, leaving me all by myself. No one else could fill in because they were all intoxicated, too.”A disgrace to all Defenders. #WeWriWa from GIB AND THE TIBBAR #scifirom #romance #GalacticDefenders Click To Tweet
About GIB AND THE TIBBAR:
A Novella in the Galactic Defenders Series
A dedicated Defender to the core, Gib is willing to go to any planet the Galactic Alliance sends him. That is, until he’s sent with his squad to Hemera for their Alorama ceremony, far from any threat of Erebus invasion and with no chance for promotion.
Vilarra has lived on Hemera all her life, working hard in the kitchens of the royal palace until she achieved lead hand. But learning of the universe beyond her world reveals her insignificance and shreds her sense of accomplishment and purpose.
With the help of a furry, little tibbar, Gib is determined to win the affection of Vilarra, prove to her how significant she is to him and the people who depend on her. But will his personal mission be cut short before he has the chance to win her heart?
