Talk to me

WIP Thursday 10/24

I’m nearly done with Adventure Inc. Book One: Let’s Adventure (It’s a working title). I’m really liking this group of characters and can’t wait to see what adventures they get into.

 

Sofia handed Jason a pistol from one of the guards and knelt to rummage through the myriad pockets and pouches in their uniforms. She withdrew zip ties and moved to take care of the three unconscious men. Looking at the one with the knife wound she looked at Jason, “Savage.”
He shrugged, “I said I was sorry.”
Thinking he had an opportunity the African man took a step toward Jason, who immediately re-aimed his pistol center mass on the man. “Cute, not stupid,” He said smiling. The other man scowled.
Sofia walked over and gestured for the man to put his hands behind his back. As she secured him with two zip ties, she leaned towards his ear, “Coulda been so much fun.” She tutted.
Jason shook his head as he watched her. “So inappropriate.” He leaned down and hefted one of the smaller guards up over his shoulder, “Let’s put ‘em in one of the far rooms.” He nodded toward one fo the doors set in the wall opposite the doorway that lead back to the main complex. As he started to head toward the indicated door the floor shook again.

Sofia is the team muscle. I had initially planned on having Jason be equally as capable, but liked the idea that he wasn’t in fact an operator. He’s sometimes clumsy, not a gret fighter, and has pretty mediocre aim. Sofia doesn’t even allow him to have rifles on missions usually.

It’s looking like early 2020 is when you’ll see Adventure Inc. Book One: We’re On a Boat! (It’s a working title)
