Hi everyone! Welcome back to the “unofficial” site of Six Sentence Sunday, which is continuing as a FACEBOOK Group. Thank you all for reading and for your great comments! I’m continuing with my military SciFi WIP, STORMS OF CONFLICT. This excerpt picks up at the point where the previous one left off, with the heroine, KAT, and her friend, JAMIE, trying to figure out who the young girl they found is, and what she may know about the bombing at a nightclub where members of the Earth Forces were killed.
The girl is brash and defiant. In the previous excerpt, she informed them that she won’t tell them a thing even under torture and duress. Is she brave or bluffing? …
“Owww…hey, that hurt!”
Jamie was holding a strand of hair she had pulled from the girl’s head. “A DNA scan will tell us who she is, Kat.”
The girl looked daggers at Jamie who merely turned and sneered back at her. “Thought you said you could withstand torture.”
“Zoe Salazar, age 15, from Lorca colony,” I read aloud off the scanner as the data came up.
