Good morning! Okay, so as promised, I’m sharing the first snippet from my Camp Nanowrimo project “The Aurigae Express.” To briefly set the scene, Alan and Diane are police partners who’ve volunteered to visit an alien planet where very few Earthlings have gone, to track down a fugitive and retrieve her ill-gotten millions.
Finally they were led onto the ship by a formidable green and white Aurigaen, who crawled down the corridors confidently on all fours. “Your chamber,” the alien said after a few minutes, pointing at the door that he’d just passed. “Please arrange all your belongings securely by ten minutes before launch. I am Fiddle, your passenger relations officer. Please contact me via intraship communicators if the safety instructions are in any way unclear.”
And he hurried off down the corridor. Diane looked at Alan and then at their cartful of baggage. “He’s got great people skills, huh?”
