Hi everyone and welcome to my letter "H" post for the A-Z Challenge. I am posting teasers from a new book I am developing titled, "Forces of Mist" a science fiction, dystopian story for a New Adult audience.
These teasers are in no particular order, so as not to give the story away. I hope you enjoy!
How the hell had he known that I would be there to organise a recorded message directed to me personally? Sarah thought and then found herself distracted by the use of his word ‘gorgeous’, did he actually think she was?
Shaking her head, she refocused on the rest of the message, as it played on.
“… Yes, I am able to see into my future and I knew you would be waiting, pressed up against the wall as you were, looking so hot!” He winked. “Not my entire race has this ability, only a small number like I exist.” He paused, before continuing.
“It is imperative that you ensure your commanders are informed of the information contained in this message. They must switch their communication devices back to the out dated analogue system, prior to the digital network. They must do this before the detonation of our disabling device or all hope of survival for your species will be lost.”
Jackson’s image seemed to plead directly to her, before his message continued, “… and we might never have a chance to get to know each other and that would be a serious shame.” Sarah could not believe her ears and eyes. Was he actually trying to help the Earthlings stop his species conquest over the planet? Why? What did he have to gain? Or was Jackson simply laying the foundations for a trap, intending to use her as a means to spring it.
She looked at his face displayed on the small com monitor and weighed up her options.
Should I follow his request, or ignore it? If I ignore it, would there be consequences?
Deliberating for only a short moment, her attention was once again focused back to the small monitor.
