Six Sentence Sunday #30 – Revenant (Part 10)

Well I am now 10 weeks in to the Six Sunday Serial that is Revenant. 10 weeks, 60 sentences, and just over 1000 words, and our hero, Ryan, has only just started his hunt for the good doctor. Last week he had to press himself spread eagle against the wall to do start the ship’s reactor on his own. Today we’ll see if he can complete that task before something goes wrong.

As always, this scene picks up immediately following last week’s six sentences, so if you want to catch up or need a recap then just follow this link.

Onto the story…

    Three of the four commands had been entered when his proximity sensor went off. Suppressing a shudder, Ryan called up a schematic of the local area and overlayed it with the movement signatures. There were five of them; two approached from behind, one from both the left and right, and another from above. Without the artificial gravity he could expect approaches from all angles, but thankfully the zero-g also slowed them down.
    He managed to issue the final command before the first one slammed into his back. His armour protected him for serious injury, but the bone jarring impact almost caused him to release the switches before the computer could process the instructions.

    1. Hi Sam. Welcome aboard and thank you for the kind words. Doing this in slices of six sentences is both a blessing and a curse. On the plus side, six sentences isn’t a lot to have to try and get done each week, but the reverse is that it can be terribly frustrating having to end a scene in the middle – like this one. That said, I am enjoying the challenge. I always try and get the sentences as polished as I can, though I’ll admit to breaking a few grammar rules now and then to fit into the six sentence criteria. There are some sentences that are a great deal longer than I’d usually write. The semi-colon is my friend 🙂

  1. Dang, Ryan has some serious cojones! I’m LOVING this series, Goran. Cannot wait to see how you get him outta this mess.

  2. Ooh nerves of steel! Terrific. Can’t wait to see how he deals with the threat, though I’m a bit concerned at the word picture you’ll paint of the enemy. I’m such a wuss. 😀
