SFFS: FALLEN continues

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.

This week, I'm continuing with another snippet from my in-work novella (currently labeled FALLEN) and if you haven't already checked it out, here are the first and second snippets. Today's snippet carries on from the last, so enjoy!
Jaysen feigned a hurt look, sticking out a pouty, gnawed lip for emphasis. “You don’t want to hang out and play?” Then, he stood from his chair and pointed a long, fungus-infested nail at me. “Too bad, because you’re a dead man! Fire all available weapons!”

The inset screen disappeared from view, and I barely uttered a command before Jeanie started carrying them out. “Evasive maneuvers!”

While the ship jerked around, I turned to face the side console and tried to come up with a plan.

Jeanie alerted me to the obstacles we were going to be facing shortly, “Rockets inbound. The other ship’s plasma cannons are firing.”

Whew! Let's hope Aston can make out of this one...and while you're waiting for next week's snippet, be sure to check out all of my other novels and novellas.
