Welcome back to another week of Weekend Writing Warriors and Snippet Sunday crews! We are continuing from last week's snippet. And here's where we jump back into the action...

“Thank you,” Mila mumbled, walking inside.
“I’ll be up front whenever you’re finished.” Paul shut the door behind her.
She took a deep breath and stared at the two sarcophagi. The standard white coffin had been upgraded with ornate markings and shiny metal carvings mounted to each corner and around the base.

Please check out the other Snippet Sunday folks and the Weekend Writing Warriors! See below for more info on The Cure.
Vetrasian scientist Mila Groso built a career out of developing cures for the galaxy’s deadliest diseases. After her husband and daughter are murdered in cold blood, she makes it her mission to find a cure for death itself.
Mila isn’t the only one interested in her research, though. The planet’s religious leader sends his minions to stop her from negating the existence of an afterlife. A mysterious mercenary threatens her life unless she hands the research over. It's obvious too many people know what she’s doing.
Fighting to stay alive, Mila must fend off both groups with their diametrically opposed goals and find the ultimate cure to resurrect her family. What once was a potential miracle may end up a greater curse than she can imagine.
