I'm slowly bringing out snippets from "Genesis," a story that I'd written long ago. So, if you didn't catch the previous snippets,catch the story so far
The boys have just had money thrown in their laps, which put to rest most of their concerns about Gabriel (as it always tends to). Now, we're going to find out what happens next:
“So, all we have to do is take you wherever you want to go? There’s nothing more required of us?”
“Transport is all I require at this point. As I mentioned before, the full extent of my journey has not been revealed to me.” His explanation was strange, but another look at the coins littering the tabletop kept me too occupied to care.
“You have a deal, Mr. Peters.” I stuck out my hand to bond our agreement.
“Please, call me Gabriel.”
A furry paw smashed down on the center of the table, as a booming, beefy voice echoed above us. “Peters, as certain as I live and breathe, I knew it would only be a matter of time…”
Be sure to come back next week for yet another installment. Again, I always enjoy your comments!
Great cliffhanger, TM!ReplyDelete
Sorry if I'm a bit slow on this, but Gabriel Peters? Does he also have a sledge hammer in that satchel? ;P (Kidding! I couldn't resist.)ReplyDelete
Now, who's this bear of a man interrupting our arrangement? Can't wait for next week!
Heh...didn't even cross my mind at the time. Had to google it to figure out the reference. :-)ReplyDelete
The furry paw may have been a bit confusing, but those who remember several weeks ago (when I mentioned the others in the room) should have a bit of insight into who's interrupting. :-D
A lap full of money does make for strange companions and I like the suspense left at the end (Yeah, I know Miller - it's called a cliffhanger). I was just trying to be unique. Great Snippet!ReplyDelete
Very nice snippet... great cliffhanger! (and I want to know if that's a metaphorical or actual furry paw...)ReplyDelete
Well, the owner of said paw is a fur-covered beast, but also has thumbs, so not sure if we want to consider it a "paw" or not... :-)ReplyDelete
What??!! You can't just leave it right there! Now I have to wait a whole week to see what happens next. Great snippet, again!! And yeh, I'm with Patrick...very 'Sledgehammer-ish.'ReplyDelete
Coins? What are they made of? Platinum? Somehow I don't think they'd get far on what our usual coins would buy.ReplyDelete
Of course, Gabriel and Peter(s) are two names associated to something else...which was what I was going for. ;-)ReplyDelete
Sue Ann, last week's snippet mentioned that each coin was worth ten-thousand credits (and thus the satchel was likely worth millions). And as long as they get off this planet, the rest is all just bonus. :-)
Thanks for the read. I'll be back next to week to see what happensReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by!ReplyDelete
LOL!! Of course! I KNEW there had to be a catch!ReplyDelete
Uh oh! I wonder if the new person is friend or foe!ReplyDelete
Judging by the dialogue, I'd be willing to bet the new arrival won't be too friendly. ;-)ReplyDelete
There's always a catch, JC! :-D
Oh naughty with the cliff-hanger!ReplyDelete
AWWW Cliffhanger evil!!! :) Love it.ReplyDelete
Well, if not for the cliff-hanger, what would bring you back next week? ;-)ReplyDelete
Thanks to everyone for stopping by!
