A little excerpt from Kris— Kris has been sent to the genetic testing clinic a second time to confirm his identity.
Imagination running wild, Kris envisioned his parents as rebels, rock stars and time travelers…always coming back to the same conclusion. It was more likely that his genetics were tied with a set of criminals serving life sentences in maximum security.
As he stared up toward the dropped ceiling, the boy wished that he was somewhere else. He really did not want to learn that his father and mother were akin to Bonnie and Clyde. “Next,” the nurse called his name after reexamining his forms. “Kris Cane.” Looking up from the hallway chair, he wondered why she bothered. There was no one there except him.

This excerpt made me giggle and feel bad for Kris all at once. I wouldn’t tweak this part at all. It’s full of personality and suspense without being maudlin. Nice job!
Marcia, thank you so much!!
Will be interesting to find out the results. Looking forward to the next excerpt. Poor Kris!
ooo Kris is in for it…for sure!!! thanks Debbie!
I love hearing your character’s thoughts and it makes me want to know more about him… he draws me in, for certain! Intriguing, all this genetic testing….!
Thanks so much Susan! Will be doing more excerpts from Kris as the weeks pass!
Interesting excerpt. I feel very invested in Kris and definitely look forward to learning more!
he will be visiting weekend warriors in the coming months. Glad you enjoyed the excerpt. Thanks for stopping in.
Great snippet Patrick. I like the way you have his mind weighing the outcome. Well done. I liked the ending too. The nurse, and his reaction to having his name called when he was the only one there.
