This week is my eighth time with the Weekend Writing Warriors. Here’s 8 sentences from one of my current WIPs, The Voyage of the Inara Marue.
Xander came and sat next to her on the bed. He wished circumstances were different because every time he sat next to her he hoped she couldn't hear the rapid thumping of his heart. He wasn't the first doctor to be enamored with a patient and he wouldn't be the last. He knew if he could bide his time things might be different. "May I touch you?"
She threw him a lopsided grin. "That depends on what you had in mind, doc."
It took everything in him not to react.
This is a science fiction novel with romantic elements. The story is about a woman who was modified without her permission, both physically and genetically. The modifications are extensive and include eyes, limbs and nanotechnology in the form of nanites flowing through her. She has a special mission but those in power at the military want her for something very different and it’s not for the good of mankind. She has to fight not only for herself but the whole of humanity and to save the species.
