I'm back with another peek at what Petri is up to. Enjoy! :-)
Excerpt from book two of the Petri Dish Chronicles:
Swallowing against the over-stuffed feeling, Petri nodded. "I think so." She looked around at the room again. The two Arcanum were unconscious on the floor, but she could tell that they both still lived. Reaching out with her mind, she found the Collective still intact, though they recoiled when they felt her presence. Swallowing, Petri gave her friend a sheepish look. "I think I got carried away."
Chessie gave a startled laugh. "Yeah, I think so, hun. What will they do to you?"
Shaking her head, Petri said, "I don't know. I think I scared them."
With a wry smile, Chessie gave her shoulders another squeeze as she looked around. "I can understand why."
Hesitantly, Petri met her friend's eyes. "Are you afraid of me, now?"
Her eyes rolling, Chessie leaned down and kissed the top of Petri's head. "Nah, hun, you don't scare me. Friends forever, right?"
Relieved, Petri smiled and hugged the older woman back. "Friends, forever and always."
"Can we go back to the ship now?"
Stepping closer to her friend and wrapping both of her arms tight around the other woman, Petri nodded. "Yes."
I love the way Chessie and Petri are so loyal to each other. No matter what the universe throws at them, they've always got each other's backs. Friendship like that is rare. Thanks for stopping by, everyone, and I hope you all have a fantastic week. And don't forget to hug your friends! ;-)
