Captured by the Hawk - Snippet 1 for #WeWriWa

Welcome to another Sunday with Weekend Writing Warriors. Here, writers showcase their stories with 8-10 sentences. Join the fun and read our snippets.

This week, I’ll share a scene from Captured by the Hawk, my Space Operetta. Kat has stolen key codes from the Emperor’s Revenge in the docks of Hassam spaceport.

Two men strode past the container where she crouched in silence. They spoke in low, cheerful voices as if their business had prospered in the port. Kat did not recognize their nondescript dark clothes, but they bore stunners in their belts. She watched them walk down the bay toward the ship, which was blocked from her sight by a stack of boxes. When they vanished behind the stack, she turned quietly, intending to creep away. She squeaked involuntarily, as her arm was grabbed roughly from behind. 

A man said in a gruff voice, “It’s the thief.” Kat wriggled vigorously, trying to escape his grip, to no avail. 

Footsteps sounded, and a second man came up behind her. “The Captain wants to question the thief,” he said.

The ebook is on sale for 99c for this week.

  1. Uh oh. This isn't a good situation to be in.

  2. Oh my, Aurora! Just when I thought she was safe. This cannot be good!

  3. Whoops! Now she's in for it. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Caught! But then, Kats can handle birds, right?

  5. Oh dear, I had a feeling things weren't going to be so easy for her! The snippet sure ends on a cliffhanger - can't wait to see what happens next.

  6. Being caught is never a good thing - hope she gets out of it or even better rescued.
