Cold Fear, SF/futuristic 25% excerpt!

The 25% excerpt today is from Cold Fear, the final release in my Other Worlds series from Amber Allure.

ColdFear_MedI met his gaze, and he looked steadily back at me.

“Ready?”

“No, but get to it anyway.”

I began to manipulate the break to get it back into the correct alignment. Josh sucked in a breath and his back arched.

“Fuck! I wish I was still unconscious,” he bit out. “And I thought you loved me; this is torture.”

“Sorry, sorry,” I murmured, but kept working. I hated to hear Josh so obviously in pain, especially as I was the one causing it, but there was no help for it.

I sat back with relief and said, “There, I think it’s set.”

“You think it’s set?” Josh said in that snarky way of his.

“I’m sure,” I said, hoping I sounded convincing. “Just need to get it splinted it and you’ll be fine.” I squeezed his shoulder. “I’m going to need to raise your leg, so can you support it?”

“I’ll manage,” he said, angling his body in preparation. I raised the leg carefully and placed his foot on the piece of console I had brought close for just that purpose. Josh took the weight of his thigh. I lifted the large can out of the medic box.

“Just take it easy, Matt,” he said gruffly. “You wouldn’t think jagged bone digging into raw nerves would hurt, but it does.”

God, there are times I could cheerfully throttle him… “Sure. Is this your first broken bone?” I was trying to take his mind off the pain by asking him about other injuries; yeah, that should work.  Now who was being snarky?

“Ah, ah, no, this would be, uh, four.”

I aimed the can at left side of his injured leg. “Okay, this is going to hurt, Josh.” I began to spray, moving around the front and right side of his leg until I covered the lower half, too. Once his leg was completely covered in the foam, I began to spread it evenly over the injury.

“Ah! I know, I know,” he said through gritted teeth.

I hoped he couldn’t see how my hands were shaking. “All four while serving?” I asked.

“All but one.” His voice faded as he sucked in a breath.

“So, what happened?” I wasn’t sure now who I was trying to distract.

“Fell out of a tree when I was eleven and it hurt…just like…that.” He gritted his teeth and threw his head back.

“Sorry, Josh, sorry. I’m trying not to hurt you,” I apologized, knowing it didn’t matter what I said.

“I know you are, Matt, but can you just be done?”

“Nearly done, nearly done.” I had to make sure the foam was correctly layered before it hardened.

Grimacing, Josh ground out, “No, you’re done, Matt, you’re done. That’s a great splint. Stop! Stop…ah…”

I ignored his pleas. I needed to finish. “How’s that feel?” I asked him a minute later.

“Agony,” he groused. He raised his head to look at me. I saw the pain in his expression, yet he still managed to smile. “I think I could use the pain meds now.”

I leaned in and kissed his lips. I’d wanted to do that since the moment he came to. “Just to make you feel better while I get the medications.”

“It worked,” Josh said with a grin.

I pulled the medic box closer and it took only a moment to give Josh a dose of the drugs. “That should help in a minute or two.”

“A kiss might help in the meantime,” Josh whispered, leaning close. I obliged with pleasure.

I sighed as I pulled away. “I should go and check on Dennis again.”

“Before you do that, help me up.”

“Josh, no. I don’t think you should move.”

“Probably not, but I need to get back to work on that comm.” He reached up to put an arm around my shoulder. “Come on. Ah!” he said as I helped him stand. “Should’ve kissed me for longer,” he mumbled.

I wasn’t really happy moving him, but the trouble was I knew he was right. We had little time and we had to find a way out of this mess. He leaned against me as I helped him back to the chair by the console.

New review for COLD FEAR!

Jenre at Brief Encounters has just reviewed the last novella in my Other Worlds series, Cold Fear.

“The shifts in tone from all out action, tense scenes where they are trying to find a way out of the situation, and a sense of sorrow and impending hopelessness added to the realism of the situation.”

About the book

On Alkya, a planet a long way from Earth, the Division of Investigation – Other Worlds – has set up a base where hundreds of personnel live and work. Among them are two men, Major Joshua Marsden and Lieutenant Matthew Ronson, who are part of one of the survey teams.

Dropping through the atmosphere to land on Theta for their latest survey, the ship is disabled by a strange energy force and crashes in an immense ice field. Matt awakens in the debris of the control room to find Josh and Dennis injured and the ship badly damaged.

Matt does what he can for his colleagues and attempts to repair the tear to the ship’s skin. But the men struggle to keep warm in the freezing temperatures, and when they discover their comm-unit isn’t working, it becomes a fight for their very survival…

An excerpt from the book

Oh God, which wall did I slam into this time? I tried to move, I was too damn cold to stay lying wherever the hell I was, but nothing seemed to work properly. Besides the pounding in my head, which probably accounted for the dancing black spots behind my eyelids, my left leg was on fire and it hurt to breathe.

“Josh…”

Just the sound of his voice made me feel better and I forced my eyes open. Thankfully the spots faded somewhat. “Matt,” I said, although croaked would be a better description.

“Try to stay put Josh, I think your leg’s broken,” he said.

“No,” I said gruffly, “my leg’s definitely broken.” I looked around but that certainly didn’t make me feel better. “What the hell happened? And why is it so damn cold?”

“Not exactly sure what happened, except that we crashed in what looks like an ice field.”

“Crashed? Ice field? There was no ice field where we planned to land, wasn’t one for thousands of miles.”

“Yeah, but somehow you found one.”

“I’d have an answer for that except that I can’t think with this constant drum roll in my head.”

“I know, Josh. I can give you a painkiller.”

“Let’s hold that in reserve,” I sighed. With those things the cure can be worse than the pain. I glanced around at the mess that had once been the control room. “Where’s Dennis?”

“In the rear compartment. I’m afraid he’s hurt too. He’s still out.”

I tried to sit up and Matt helped me lean back against part of the console. “What’s wrong with Dennis?”

“Head injury, doesn’t look good. There’s been a fair amount of bleeding, but it had clotted before I found him. There’s something else too. The cold isn’t just because we crashed in this ice field, there’s a breach in the rear bay.” Matt sighed. “I patched it as best as I could, but I’m not an engineer.”

Matt handed me a jacket as he spoke and helped me struggle into it. He then passed me a pair of gloves and I swiftly pulled those on. He pulled the blankets up around me that had covered me when I was flat out on the deck.

“What happened when you reported in?”

“Ah, I haven’t. I couldn’t get anything from the comm. The main console seems to be dead.”

“What? Fuck!” I tried to get my head around everything he’d said. No question though, we were in shit creek without a paddle. “Help me get to the comm, see if I can’t do anything about that.”
