A pure race
Time for more Weekend Writing Warriors snippets. We post 8-10 sentences from one of our works every weekend.
This is the final continuous excerpt from Fan the Embers. (creatively changed punctuation so it kept to 10 sentences 😉 )
“The Earthen embassy is in the capital city of Brethen,” Rudy, his shuttle pilot, said with a huge toothy grin. “You’re going to love it. The air is so pure I get a high every time I visit–I hope you have a ton of things to do, because the Figorians and the Earthens don’t intermingle much.” He shrugged. “It’s not like other worlds where we can find a piece of ass to spend the night or a weekend with. Figorians keep to Figorians. Theirs is a pure race.”
Hugh hoped he was wrong. After all, he would be spending months with them. Surely they wouldn’t ostracize him for that long.
You’ve read through the middle of Chapter One. I will start jumping around for the next few weeks before I move on to another book. If you are intrigued with and want to read more, Fan the Embers is now available at major eRetailers. Enjoy 😀
It’s 2096, Earth is relatively new to the intragalactic game, and 18-year-old Earthen Hugh MacGivens thinks he’s going to spend a few months on a distant world with his ambassador parents. Instead, he steps onto the planet to find he’s Earth’s selection for solidifying an alliance with the genderless people of Figor—by mating with a local.
Trend a’Bahn is ready for xys life to begin. Xe wants to gain an apprenticeship to a master builder and find xys mate in claiming season. Never would xe have expected an attraction to an offworlder.
While the two navigate claiming season, an undercurrent in Figor emerges. They don’t like anything non-Figorian and they hate what Hugh represents. As peaceful as Figorians are, a fire has been lit. If their beloved Empeer won’t stop such a mating from occurring, they will take care of it themselves.
Hugh came to Figor for a few months and possibly the rest of his life. If they have their say, his life ends now.
