SFFS: Another THE CURE Snippet

Well, this week's been a rough one for various reasons. But no worries, fair travelers, we're right on schedule for another week of Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday. After last week's snippet, it was almost imperative that we continue the scene until the end. So, here you go with another snippet from my standalone novel, The Cure, carrying on with Mila's standoff with the two Guardians over Project Genesis.

“I’m afraid I’ve not heard of that project. Why don’t you tell me about it?”

The man turned to his partner and said, “I told you she wouldn’t listen.”

The female Guardian gave a weak chuckle, her cold stare remaining focused on Mila. “You’ll have to excuse my partner. He tends to be impatient.”

The man’s mouth contorted as he faced the scientist, but he stopped just short of a growl. The woman’s face took on a gentle demeanor, her words anything but. “What you’re doing is an aberration. You have to stop.”

Not the breathtaking end-of-the-snippet that I would have liked, but ten sentences only get you so far. In the meantime, you could read the entire book, by picking up your own copy of  The Cure. Also, be sure to go check out the rest of the Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday snippets. Stay tuned for next week's continuation!
