This is another little 10 line snippet from Dremiks. Be sure to check out all of the other great authors at http://scififansat.blogspot.com/ And hey, if you like this little scene, remember that Dremiks is available for Nook and Kindle and in print!
“Captain, as officer of the watch please note that Commander O’Connell, as pilot of the watch, began stimulants and IV fluids at 0110 hours. With this course of treatment, regulations state that Commander O’Connell must be relieved of flight duties no later than 0600 hours today.” From the tired slurring of the technician’s voice it sounded as if he himself needed the stims more than Maggie.
“So noted in the log. Proceed.”
A few minutes later, the captain raised an eyebrow when he heard O’Connell let loose a soft little laugh and then sigh.
“You’ll let me know if you feel the sudden urge to show off your flight aerobatics, won’t you Commander?”
She laughed again, a slightly breathless sound that did nothing to reassure him. “As the captain wishes.”
The bridge crew watched as Captain Hill shook his head and looked down at his tablet. They couldn’t see the soft smile that just titled the corner of his mouth.
