Weekend Writing Warriors – The Auction
Welcome to my entry in the Weekend Writing Warriors hop where you can get a whole boatload of eight-sentence excerpts from all kinds of wonderful authors.
This week, I’m moving ahead with Rescued by the Spy. You might recall from my last entry (2 weeks ago), that our heroine, Nina, was kidnapped by some rough bad guys. Well, she’s taken off-world to the moon, Titan. Her experience there starts off rather badly (to say the least). This excerpt is R-rated, so please use discretion.
The ten women were led in a single-file line out into a noisy auditorium. They each tried to cover themselves with their hands for modesty but, of course, it was of little help. The auditorium was dense with smoke from tobacco and other weeds, making the number of persons present hard to estimate. Still, Nina thought there were maybe two hundred in the theatre-in-the-round style room. The women prisoners went up three stairs and onto a stage in the middle of the audience. There were guards positioned solidly around the bottom of the stage. The lights on the prisoners were harsh, further obscuring the audience from view. The women crowded together on the little platform, and the auction began.
