Who's Kasey Reynolds? Those who've read my story "Entrapment" already know...
In my story "Double Trouble", Kasey has just returned from her (shall we say less-than-stellar) experience in "Entrapment" and the new story's tagline says it all: Kasey Reynolds had it all, but now she only has one chance to keep it.
The flesh on flesh impact echoed off black stone. Pain radiated through Kasey’s jaw before she fell to the floor. Torches hung along each wall, painting their light on the vaulted ceiling. Each flame grew with the mercenary’s anger. She jerked her head back toward the Birolian crown Prince, a growl rolling deep in her throat.
Dryden towered over her. An eerie red halo silhouetted his muscular frame, while his eyes narrowed. “You won’t fail us again.”
He was fortunate the scattergun usually attached to Kasey’s thigh was back on her ship. Otherwise, he’d be dead.

Very nice. I like her attitude.ReplyDelete
She does have that, and plenty to spare. ;-)ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by!
I predict some revenge in her future.ReplyDelete
Heh...there might be, at that...can read the full story and find out. ;-)ReplyDelete
Something about that red halo doesn't set well with me. Unfair advantage? Kasey needs to take him down!ReplyDelete
Great stuff as usual!! I suspect her captors won't be faring well in the near future... ;)ReplyDelete
Uh oh, sounds like she's in some serious trouble. And they might find themselves in even worse trouble once she's properly armed.ReplyDelete
Is his anger actually fueling the torches, or is that in her head? Or is she the mercenary? Is Dryden the crown Prince? It's not quite clear whether 2, 3 or 4 people are present.ReplyDelete
One of the hazards of a ten-sentence snippet, is the lack of a setup. Not to worry, it should all be clear in the full story. ;-)ReplyDelete
Angelia, when Kasey gets a head of steam behind her, people are definitely going to be in trouble. Even worse if they end up letting her carry weapons. :-)
TK, I certainly wouldn't want to piss Kasey off...to quote Firefly, "have you ever been with a warrior woman?" :-P
Patrick, other than him being part of the ruling family, he doesn't have any sort of magical powers. The red halo and torches were all part of the effect for the scene. ;-)
Thanks, everyone, for stopping by!
Yes, the warrior woman, she is my fave! I love it! Off to download my copies if I haven't already!ReplyDelete
She's one of my favorites, too (don't tell Aston! :-D ). Thanks for stopping by!ReplyDelete
Oh, I'm sure she'll make him pay.ReplyDelete
I have this feeling you may just be right... ;-)ReplyDelete
