Another Six Sentence Sunday is here. We’re still working through my WIP, Unlikely Paradise, and this entry comes from Chapter 5. For those who are here for the first time, here’s a little recap of what’s happened so far.
Reporter Zextra Harrison has uncovered the story of a lifetime. Too bad there are those who want to cut her life short because of what she’s uncovered. She’s been kidnapped and sent to the pleasure planet Bliss4521 for a total memory wipe. Kemper Green is a doctor who has been demoted because of his sense of duty. Now he repairs robotic humans as his sentence. He’s bidding his time until he can leave when Zex is brought in for repair. Tied up and drugged. When she sheds a tear, he realizes he’s poised to commit the most henious of crimes, turning a human into a robotic type creature. Again, he puts himself on the side of right and whisks Zex away to an undisclosed destination. This is part of the conversation they have when she wakes up.
Kemp rubbed his eyes. “Sounds like they took her to get you. Even exchange. I would say the fact that he gave you the information tells you he’s leaning toward the trust column.”
“Maybe. I just don’t know any more. I mean what you said about people living in their own little bubble makes sense.”
