Traveling through space for long distances was what sleep pods were designed for, to eliminate boredom. However, some preferred the challenges each unexplored section of space offered and as the crew in the Rouster proved, there were few dull moments. Now a crew of four, the women were interested in staying far enough ahead of two larger ships that were showing over protectiveness with their captains while some members of their crew saw mixing with two of Rouster’s members a relief of their boredom.
In the sequel to ‘Merkers’ Outpost,’ Lady Alexandra and Lt. Vanster arrive on Arnica in the middle of a hostile take over of the planet. Their assignment was to find hostiles from their side of the galaxy and to neutralize them in accordance to the planets laws. Major Zohra finds herself landing in the middle of a lake at a monastery with a Sha’Kar to guide her to understanding the rules of a honorable warrior by Arnica’s standards. When their paths cross again, there will certainly be fireworks…not to mention a certain dance to make them bondmates.
NOTE: This is an unedited version. When it was originally published the editor removed chapters due to the story was too long. I have added the chapters back and added more to the story, as well as pictures. If you’re sensitive to errors I suggest you purchase the published e-book version. Enjoy. Read story:
It felt like Lonnie led many lifetimes and finally she was settling down where she felt safe enough to call home, however, the call to return to space led her back to dangerous adventures she seemed to have a need for.
Traveler started the Relic Hunters by presenting to a group of archeologist and those in the related fields a chance to raise themselves to a higher purpose. Those that were interested were given one rule:If they found any item of power developed or created eons or days ago they were to honor the story behind it and ensure it was delivered to where it was needed to fulfill its purpose.
Calose had three days to stay out of trouble on Dysta Space Station, a small station that did minor ship repair and at a reasonable cost. It seemed a safe idea to keep under the eye of the surveillance cameras so hustlers and pick-pockets wouldn’t bother her, but no loitering was allowed, and cruising through stores without purchasing anything caught the attention of the security bots. Her thought was to sleep the days away with a good reader in a sleeping cubicle but the ones in safe locations were already occupied. While she moved around she spied a potential spot to sleep, and when the station moved into nightshift, she settled for a light nap. Her sleep was disturbed when a relic was dropped in her lap and for the next few days she spent trying to avoid relic Hunters, until she found who the relic belonged to.
Leona Bestolie legally ran away from home with the help of the lottery which required four years of public service. She signed up to work as a courier for an ambassador on another planet. Her plan was after her four years she would be of age to legally make her own decision on what to do with her life, and hopefully she would be out of the reach of her family to stop her. An offer was made to send her to a school to see if she could pass the test to be an Observer working for who she only knew as HQ. Nothing military or acting as a spy, only Observing. On her graduation she registered as an entertainer and hired a talent agent that wasn’t heavy handed with her jobs as long as she was a steady earner. She signed a contract as a dancer on a space cruise ship which spent ten months in space stopping at various space ports and planets. For nineteen years she balanced her work dancing and sending reports from the various ports of call to HQ. Unexpectantly her talent agent retired, selling her contract that had three more years to it, to a more assertive and ambitious talent agent. His plan for Leona was to mentor a troubled and difficult diva for ten months and in return, he would legally end her contract with him. This disruption of her routine life aboard the ship came at the same time a sudden change in leadership at HQ that brought a disturbing shift in the handling of the Observers. Leona’s life took on a chaotic as well as life changing course though, not entirely unpleasant.
