Below is a snippet from my latest WIP called Across the Stars. It's a SFR or Sci-Fi Romance.
Here's the story scoop: Laina is one of the last surviving humans after earth was destroyed when the humans tried to kill the cyborgs they'd created when the cyborgs rebelled and escaped. Now the Cyborgs, with permission of the Galactic High Council have free rein to pursue the last remnants of the human race and do with them as they see fit. Rorik, a cyborg lieutenant stumbles upon Laina hiding in a ship and he captures her, thinking to get information about the whereabouts of other humans. But when the cyborg doctor on Rorik's ship runs tests on Laina, a genetic anomaly in her hand raises questions and he suddenly wonders if Laina might hold the key to the survival of the cyborg race. Can he learn to trust and love his sworn enemy if it means he might save his people? Last week we left off with Laina having gotten her first glimpse of Rorik through her cabin window as his ship prepares to board hers. Now she's trying to escape her room aboard the ship she's on before the cyborgs board and find her. After the captain of the transport ship she's on locks her in her room, Laina has to find another way to escape her chamber before the cyborgs come for her.
She sagged back against the locked door in defeat and tipped her head back to suck in deep breaths. Panicking wouldn’t do her any good now. Her eyes opened and she gazed up at the ceiling tiles and for the first time that day, she smiled. Running over to her bed, she leapt up on it and climbed onto the thin metal headboard. She was just tall enough to reach the low ceiling. The tile moved easily when she pushed up and in a matter of a few seconds she’d cleared a body sized hole. She summoned the strength to pull herself up into the dark, confined space, and she slid the tile back into place. With her pack slung over her shoulders she started to crawl toward a distant light and not a a moment too soon because the heavy clang of the ship’s body told her the cyborgs had boarded.
