SFFS: A Snippet from "Genesis"

Welcome to another installment of Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday on the blog. Thanks for all the feedback you give on my snippets, but be sure to go visit all of the other writers through the SFFS link above as well.

I'm diving back into the archives again today, with "Genesis," a story that I'd written long ago. My hope is to bring several snippets from this one over the next few weeks. So, hopefully you'll enjoy them and bring your wonderful comments along:
“Surely there has to be something,” insisted my companion.

He was always a little slow to believe me. “There’s no money left, Duff, nothing at all.”

“How did this happen, Colin?”

I tried not to roll my eyes, though I’d warned him many times about this very situation. It wasn’t as if he’d listened. Instead, his spending had continued, regardless of the fact neither of us could remember our last job.

“Money goes out, but nothing comes in,” I muttered.

“We don’t even have enough to eat?” He tilted his head and trained his sad, brown eyes on me.

Be sure to check back again next week when I continue this story. Again, I always enjoy your comments!
