Welcome back to another Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday!
The days are getting shorter. The leaves are shedding their green cloaks and revealing their inner reds, yellow, oranges, and browns. And, the nip in the air all tell us one simple truth: it’s getting freaking cold! I’m not ready for winter yet.
Today’s contribution continues the series of snippets from a deleted scene from my fourth book, ALONE IN THE UNIVERSE.
In the last post, Anna threw Kate a curve ball in her attempt to clarify human gender, further confusing the poor hologram.
If you wish to read the entire series up to this point, you can catch up here:

And now, here is this week’s snippet. Enjoy!
Anna paused for a second. “By what?”
“The whole Mars and Venus statement you just stated.”
“Oh, it’s an old phrase from a long time ago. It’s used to state that men and women are different.”
Kate shrugged. “Then, why didn’t you just say that?”
Anna’s jaw slackened. “I did.”
“You know what? Forget it.” The edge in Anna’s voice illustrated her frustration. She spun toward the synthesizer.
