SFFS: Bring on the Natives (Another FALLEN Snippet)

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.

This week, I'm continuing on with last week's snippet. from FALLEN. The natives are restless (or at least standing outside his ship)...

Ultimately, I couldn’t bring myself to harm anyone who wasn’t out to do the same, or usually worse, to me. I needed to clear these folks out of the area.

“Are they armed with weapons?”

“It is unknown whether the items they’re carrying are tools or weapons. They’re handheld and not energy-based.”

I wasn’t about to take any chances, so went straight for the secret compartment under my cot. Rather than stick with my old, trusty Mark II blaster, I decided to pick up my disintegrator cannon. I planned on giving them a proper demonstration on why they needed to vacate the area as soon as possible.

While you're waiting for next week's snippet, be sure to check out all of my other novels and novellas.
