SFFS: Another Snippet From FALLEN

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

Last week, you had your first look at my new novella (currently labeled FALLEN) and Aston was facing off against an old acquaintance. We continue the saga in today's snippet...enjoy!
“How’d you get out? You were arrested.”

“And now I’m back.”

I made a quick pass through the rest of the image presented to me. Two grungy men who barely looked old enough to be called suck took up a pair of control consoles at the forward end of the pirate ship’s bridge. I noticed that his previous partner, the one who’d caught me trying to escape with my stolen money the last time, was nowhere to be seen.

“Jeanie, get us out of here!”

She responded in kind. “Hyperspeed system is offline. There appears to be a signal jamming it.”

If it's not one thing, it's another...let's hope he figures a way out of this one, and fast! And while you're waiting for next week's snippet, be sure to check out all of my other novels and novellas.
