Weekend Writing Warriors #13 – Revenant (Part 52)

The last two weekends I was transported back to the late 90’s with my internet access limited to dial up speeds. Sadly all the sites I visit weren’t similarly shunted back to those simpler times and as a result accessing anything on the web became an exercise in frustration. I was therefore unable to properly do my rounds and post comments… that issue has been fixed and I can once more participate fully in the Weekend Writing Warrior community.

I give you yet another 8 sentences from Revenant, and once again, this snippet follows on immediately after last week. If you want to refresh your memory about what’s happened you can simply follow this link.


    Ryan squeezed the trigger a third time, finally dropping the approaching husk once and for all, before turning his attention to the other three. He settled himself, taking a moment to adjust to being planetside again, then let out a breath and fired, moving the gun smoothly between targets.
    Each shot struck home. The oncoming creatures’ heads disappearing in a flash of superheated plasma.
    Beside him, Kassandra stood rigid, jaw clenched, her face a mix of terror and disgust. Ryan certainly knew that look. It was one thing to imagine the husks in the abstract, and quite something else to see them for real. Kassandra might be strong, but this was something she’d need to work through on her own.


I hope you’ve enjoyed my contribution to this week’s list, and thanks for stopping by.

  1. Excellent snippet – intriguing and raising questions making the reader want to continue to discover how Kassandra (and I love the name btw) works through it or if she does. Nicely done.

  2. Goddamn I love Ryan! Calm and calculated in the face of some serious nasties, and his assessment of the doc is spot on. My kinda hero.

  3. Great snippet, Goran. I really liked the description of his action and his understanding her expression. Nicely done. 🙂
