Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!
Thank you to everyone who commented last week on my snippet from GIB AND THE TIBBAR! This story will be in the upcoming EMBRACE THE ROMANCE: PETS IN SPACE 2 anthology. Here’s another snippet…
Set-up: Vilarra stopped the Defenders from squishing her pet, but one of the Defenders is intrigued by her…
“So, you were eavesdropping.” Gib caught the admission and refused to back down to the angry Hemera. Not when she was so appealing to look at, even if mad. She intrigued him even more with her ability to keep her thoughts to herself. He’d never been mind blocked by anyone except the Yarwin on a first meeting, but he couldn’t catch a hint of what she thought except by observing her body language. Unusual for races who didn’t interact with Mingot on a regular basis.
“So what if I was.” She slammed her hand on her hips, her nostrils flaring. “I used to admire the Defenders, but now I know you’re all just as arrogant as our king. You know nothing about how the rest of us live.”He can't read her mind. #WeWriWa from GIB AND THE TIBBAR #scifirom #PetsinSpace 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?
