Unwilling Pawns ("Genesis" Continues)

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 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

This fight is getting nasty between Azrael and Gabriel, but what about the two boys? Well, we couldn't forget them, now could we?
Azrael baited with a mocking tone. “Perhaps I should finish the job my brother started instead? Matching eye patches would suit you perfectly.” More strings of saliva dripped from his bared fangs.

“Do what you think you must, but this money must remain with these two.” He motioned toward Duff and me. Was he trying to get us killed?

Azrael turned to face us. His tongue darted out and slipped from side to side across his lower fangs. “You don’t mind if I reclaim money which is rightfully mine, do you?”

Be sure to come back next week for yet another installment. Again, I always enjoy your comments!


  1. I know what my response would be: "No, go right ahead, man." Ha! Sorry, but the licking of the fangs is enough to make me throw my cards in. Love this development. But I'm still thinking Azrael is stepping into something that he thinks he can handle, but can't.

  2. Hmmm.... Let's see... which to choose?

  3. Never get in the middle of a family quarrel.

  4. Tantalising snippet! I like the detail about the saliva, too. :D

  5. Thanks for stopping by, everyone! Yeah, I can't imagine any answer I'd be giving besides no to this... :-)

  6. Sounds like Azrael is hungry for more than the money. *shudders*

  7. Revenge is a fairly common trait across all species.


I love comments, and do my best to answer everyone who stops by...
