Big Bite

A lonely mallard in the wavepool. A yacht out past the breakers, sail canvas snapping in the wind.

“Lieutenant Charles Tucker III?”

An elegant, understated figure. Romanesque robes.

Ambassador Soval.

Big bite of carmelized onion burger.

“Masticating.” Soval smelled of eucalyptus, not sandalwood and orange.

“Have you seen this woman?”

Adorable ears. No cowl. Eyes alive with mystery. Tempting as hell. “I’d remember a woman who looks like that.” Long low whistle for effect.


Nope. Not getting her in trouble. “Listen, Sparky. Bugger off. May the bluebird – or the Smurf – of happiness fly up your -” Another nice big bite.

Why does Soval care if Trip saw the woman in question?

Just who is this woman?

Does she fit into Trip’s dilemma?

Any guesses?

I am myself. I own my life, and live with three other people who own theirs. My intention is to do only those things that bring me joy, and to give myself wholly to those things I do. Writing has been my passion throughout my life, and this will become the home for my writing life...because it brings me great joy!
