SFFS: A Snippet from "Deadly Decisions"

Welcome to another installment of Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday here on the blog (and make sure to go visit all of the other SFFS writers through that link). To celebrate the break-through on my recent round of writer's block (or whatever you want to call it) by way of a new Kasey Reynolds story, I'm going to be offering up snippets from her other stories over the next few weeks.

Who's Kasey Reynolds? Those who've read my story "Entrapment" know already...but let's just say she and Aston don't really get along all that well.

And in this story "Deadly Decisions", she's trying to find her way in a new career foreign to her...and meeting up with someone has her with one hand on a holstered scattergun, if that tells you anything about the people she's dealing with...

“Come now, Kasey. We both know why you might not have shown.”

She went along with the charade. “Oh?”

“You’ve made a career out of bringing in criminals, dead or alive. If this room found out who you are, let’s just say you wouldn’t have a lot of fans.”

Kasey laced her fingers around the grip and trigger. “Hopefully I don’t have anything to worry about.”

His eyes sparkled, then he gave a brief chuckle. “No, I need you alive.”

If you enjoyed this, check out "Deadly Decisions" and all of my short stories! And be on the lookout next week for yet another appearance from Kasey...
