Adan leaned forward. “You know something about this?”
Kr’zani’s tail swished lazily. Behind the fierce expression, Adan knew there were rapid calculations running through that brain of his. His nose twitched like he was sniffing the air.
“You’re telling the truth,” Kr’zani said grudgingly.
“Of course I am!” Adan spread his arms and stood to his feet. “Why wouldn’t I be?”
Ignoring him, Kr’zani continued, “Perhaps while awaiting the Mistress we can attempt to solve this problem together.”
Adan grinned and chuckled. It would be amusing to have a little companion by his side for once. “Shera always swears by that nose of yours. Why not?”The Pipe Predicament Chapter 3: The Game Is On
I’m back with the third chapter of the introductory sci-fi mystery story I started two years ago! I’ve had so much fun playing with these new characters and I can’t wait to show you how they perform in longer stories coming up.
For now, enjoy the penultimate chapter of this story – and see if you can figure out the mystery yourself!
Why post the story on Simily? I get paid for every view! That means to support me, all you have to do is read.
Thanks for reading!

Why do I ask for donations? This money all goes towards helping me pay for marketing, book services (editing, cover art, etc.), learning opportunities, and writing-related subscriptions that I have to purchase myself due to being an indie author and a blogger who posts tons of resources and stories for free. Every dollar counts! Thank you so much, and God bless you. ♥️ E.J.Donate
