Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors and another short excerpt from Captured by the Cyborg. To recap, Illumina has applied for a computer job with the underground Moonbeam spacecraft remanufacturing plant on Deceptio. Dale Homme, a cyborg, owns and operates Moonbeam. This is a scene between Illumina and Charlie, Dale’s assistant.
Homme had worn his skepticism like a birthday suit. Naked and bold. Laugh lines spraying out from his eyes indicated he wasn’t always so serious, but he’d squinted with suspicion throughout the interview.
“If you need anything, you can reach me through any comm module.” Charlie pointed to a screen on the wall. “Welcome to Moonbeam, and congratulations. You must have impressed the hell out of Dale for him to hire you before he’d interviewed anyone else.”
He left, and Illumina locked the door behind him with a palm swipe across the screen. I did it — I got the job!
She took a deep breath, filling her lungs with air untainted by fear.
Captured by the Cyborg book description
Sometimes the biggest risk is to one’s heart….
An ex-Cyber Operations field agent, Dale Homme has kissed danger and betrayal more times than he cares to count. Now he runs a clandestine factory beneath the surface of the moon Deceptio, where confidentiality and security matter more than anything. When a beautiful young woman arrives seeking a job, Dale knows within minutes she’s lying. Everything about her is false: her past, the people she claims to know, her reason for being on Deceptio. Illumina Smith? Even her name is an alias.
Logic says send her packing. His gut says she’s in trouble. She needs him. So he’ll do anything to keep her safe….even if it means keeping her captive.
