SFFS snippet– Some people just don’t play well with others…
Today we have another snippet from five-star review book TRIAD. We’ve seen that the Khimeyr aren’t too happy about working with the “uppity” Solarii…. Apparently the feeling’s mutual, if Monty Winston’s any example.
“Bloody hell. Make nice with the Khimeyr? What she thinks I am, blasted Welcome Buggie?” His black leather coat, knee-length, whooshed as his strong legs carried him down the hall. The place was already cluttered with old sacks, hunks of metal and other Khimeyr trash. He even imagined the wing smelled bad. He didn’t like it.
“Hush, Monty,” Shelby Hussard chided.
“Don’t you hush me!” Winston took pity on his young companion, her legs too short to match his strides, and slowed down. She cleaned up pretty, dressed in plain clothes for the occasion, her dark blonde hair loose about her shoulders; looked like a Welcome Wendy, all right. But nothing she was wearing would stop a bloody Khimeyr bullet, if they felt unfriendly. And he’d never known anyone that came from Miramar to be anything but unfriendly.
