As she stared at her date, Skylar’s pulse raced. For a minute, she believed Madame Eve had matched her with her ideal man. Taller and broader than herself, he could hold her in his arms and keep her forever safe, never to worry about space pirates again. Perfect.
And then he spoke. With only two words, she recognized his deep, baritone voice. Years ago, she would have loved to have been set up with him. She’d dreamed of him coming to rescue her from Rebed. But not now. Only one purpose could have brought him to Earth. He’d been sent by her brothers to take her back. When Leah had said his name, she should have assumed it was him and run.
Her muscles tightened. Fight or flight. Pivoting on her heels, she dashed out the way she’d come. She couldn’t return to the planet her brothers had left her on. No way. If they had come after her themselves, she could have explained to them what really happened to the girls from the orphanage on Rebed and about the wicked Za’lar who had fooled everyone. But not Daran. He wouldn’t listen. That wasn’t his forte. He’d been the muscle for Galan and Volan when they’d found themselves in trouble. He never took grief from anyone. Including her. The number of times he’d dragged her back home after she’d told off her parents or brothers were too many to count. Those private moments with him were the ones she enjoyed. He always took the time to listen to her, understand what possessed her to leave. Sometimes, he even agreed with her reasoning. Galan and Volan never saw his gentle caresses, never heard his kind words. But, they did interrupt several near kisses. She’d always hoped Daran would take her someplace private before handing her back to her family. Though that never happened.
This time, she didn’t see the usual kindness in his eyes. He must have been paid well to leave the planet and overcome his fears. He had a lot farther to drag her to reach her brothers, but she didn’t doubt he would. Unless she escaped. I have to.
“Skylar, wait.” His voice echoed off the walls and down the corridor.
No flipping way. Unable to get any traction with her shoes on, she ditched them. Cherise had finally consented to small heels rather than the spikes she’d originally strapped to her feet, but they still slowed Skylar down. Daran’s footsteps echoed behind her. Racing down the hallway, she spun around corners without looking back. Somehow she’d find a way out. Then she’d hide. Forever. She refused to go back.
The memory of Ghorkle’s slithering tongue and tentacles kept her feet in motion. Tears streamed down her cheeks and her vision blurred. But still, she ran, her legs pumping as fast as she could manage.
Rocketing around another bend, Skylar gripped the wall for balance then kept moving. Air entered her lungs in short gasps. She wouldn’t be able to keep that pace for long. Even when she’d escaped from Rebed, she’d never had to race so fast. But no one had been chasing her then.
The pounding footfalls behind her slowed, then disappeared completely. She heard only her own ragged breath. Slowing down, she glanced around. No one. I’ve lost him. Thank the gods!
Now, she had to find a way out, a quiet exit where no one would spot her leaving. Pausing, she sized up her surroundings. Nothing appeared familiar. When Cherise had escorted her to the observatory, Skylar had been too focused on her shoes, putting one foot in front of the other to keep from falling, and on holding down her last meal. She hadn’t bothered paying attention to the environment.
We went up. Stairs. There had to be stairs somewhere. An elevator wouldn’t do. Too long to wait. Heartbeat pounding in her ears, she sucked in deep breaths, hoping to calm her sense of urgency. If she couldn’t think and react quickly, she’d never get out. With slow, measured steps, she crept forward, trying every door for a way down, an escape.
A set of stairs lay ahead, through a glass and steel door. Freedom.
She increased her pace.
Bulging arms wrapped around her. Yanked against a large, muscular body, she lost her balance.
“There you are.”
Star snatchers! She struggled in his grip, hoping the gravity of Earth would help her out. “Let me go.”
He squeezed tighter. “I don’t think so. You have some explaining to do.”
There would be no explaining. Daran loosened his grip for a split second, just enough for Skylar to put her feet on the floor and twist around. She jerked her knee, slamming it into his groin. “I won’t go back. You can’t make me.”
His grasp loosened. They both fell to the floor, but she scrambled to her feet. Guilt consumed her for hurting him. But he didn’t understand, didn’t know what that monster she was betrothed to would do to her, how he would treat her.
Keeping her gaze on the man sent to retrieve her, she stepped backward, closer to the stairs. “I’m sorry, Daran, but I refuse to return to Rebed.”
Cupping his groin, he shook his head, tears in his eyes. “Who said anything about Rebed? I just want to know why you’re here. On Earth. Why are you at this hotel to have a one-night stand?”
“If you’ve never thought of the stars as steamy, this [story] with have you rethinking the entire sci-fi genre.”
