Wow, I blinked and like three weeks went by. I’ve missed out on the last few Saturdays but here I am just in time to offer up my own Sci-fi Fantasy Easter Eggs in time for the pending holiday. Make sure you take a moment and check out all the goodies in the SciFiFanSat.blogspot.com reading basket. Always brimming with excellent writing snippets! This week, I’m back with STEIN, one of my current WIP’s. Chased by hungry zombies, Annie is saved by a mysterious stranger, who seems to have more than a few secrets of his own. On their way back to Annie’s friends, holed up in a garage nearby, STEIN is mistakenly gunned down by one of Annie’s fellow survivors. And…we pick up from there. Enjoy!
Annie leaned in closer to the large hole in her new friend’s chest.
“There’s hardly any blood and he shot you right below your heart.”
Stein pulled the rags wrapped around his chest tighter to cover his wound and pulled himself up to his knees.
“I’ve shed my share of blood.” He looked up at Annie’s friend and asked, “Care to point that somewhere else?”
Brody jerked the barrel of his rifle away and reached down to help his accidental victim up from the pavement.
“Man, I am so sorry but I thought you were part of the meat patrol the way you’re dressed and…well, look.”
“I get that a lot.” Stein looked at Annie and asked, “Are we still going to your base?”
“You’re bringing him back to the garage?” Brody grabbed Annie by the shoulder.
Annie reached down and took Stein by the hand, leading him across the street.
“He saved my life, okay, so I told him he could come back with us.”
Brody slung his rifle over his shoulder. “Oh yeah, he should fit right in.”
Wondering how Stein fits into a group atmosphere? Yeah, that’s what I’m thinking too. Thanks for reading and please drop a comment or two in the hat before you go. They’re always appreciated. Have a great Easter and see you in seven!!
