Many people have failed to ask why must the shortest [...]

April 6, 1820 Nick settled his hand at Lady Hamersby’s waist, and they swept into the current of the ballroom. “I think you are making a mockery of me, Sir. You are flirting shamelessly at every party, and now right in front of my husband. You must desist.” “Nick, please—Wellbridge, if you prefer—and you are entirely correct.

Kat headed toward the ocean and I followed, relieved when she stopped at the dark wet sand. The white water rushed toward to us and we ran backward before it wet our shoes. Kat pulled a big shell out of her pocket and set what looked like a sunflower seed in the center. The clouds shifted and the moon appeared, lighting the sand around us.

Might I interest you in an environmental analysis or more specifically a diagnostic scan?” “Of what?

May 20, 2008 Loxahatchee, Florida The scent of blood lay thick in my nose. I shouldn’t be here. It was too dangerous. I should run. No. I had to find Brittany. Had to be with my mate during this time of death. But she hadn’t passed this way. I couldn’t smell her. There was only blood. My control slipped. My vision flashed red.

MINIMCOM had requested the detour to make what observations he could without endangering them by getting too close to the Oort Cloud surrounding the star system. They had deemed it acceptable to go slightly off-course because it only added 11 days onto their total journey. Keid was actually a triple star system. The A-star had a mass […]
