Welcome to this week’s round of SFFS snippets.

I’m continuing to post from the WIP A Good Day to Die, beginning where I left off at the end of last week. Nothing much in this snippet, but maybe a crumb or two.

The captain nodded.

Stupid question. He was just a tool – a dangerous one at that.

The Admiral glared. “What’s in it for the cyborg? Nutrients, bed, ablutions, exercise equipment.”

So perhaps a little food for thought.

Please let me know what you think, and then go on to the SFFS site to have a look at what the other authors have contributed this week.  Thanks for stopping by.
