A/N: Good news! There will be a new Haventon chapter tomorrow.

Amanpreet took advantage of the amount of comm traffic flying between the ships as their guests arrived to slip in a privte line to Promise.

“Can I help you, Captaain?” Promise responded promptly.

“Yes,” Amanpreet said without preamble. “What do you think of Summer.” Read the rest of this entry »

A/N: My beta reader is having some problems this week so I’m putting this up unbeta’d until she has chance to do it.

A/N (update): Beta’d version now up.

“I’m rejigging the sleeping arrangements,” Sonia said when they finished with Lucas for the night. “If you stay in the same room, your bond is likely to revert to the tangled state.”

“Oh.” The thought of being separated made Andrew’s stomach knot up unexpectedly. “Do we have to?”

“She’s right.” Naria lifted her head from Andrew’s shoulder where she’s been resting it wearily after their efforts. “I hadn’t thought of that. The bond has memory and will revert to its former state if we don’t take positive action to stop it.” She paused and looked sad. “We’ll need to spend less time with each other as well, at least until we’ve finished loosening the bond and it’s set in it’s new position.” Read the rest of this entry »

“Okay, are you ready?” Lucas was sitting opposite Andrew and Naria in the dining room; Sonia had dragged Matthias into the small study that he’d been waiting in and ordered them to find somewhere else. Andrew suspected she was going to tell Matthias about Melissa’s theory.

“I think so,” Andrew said quietly. “Maybe a bit anxious.”

“I am.” Naria reached out and grabbed Andrew’s hand before taking Lucas’s hand in her other one. Andrew took the hint and allowed Lucas to take his other hand. “Don’t worry, Drew. It’ll be fine.” Read the rest of this entry »

The next day Amanpreet found Niobe sitting at her station even though she wasn’t due on duty for a couple of hours. She had a line open to the contact ship and was deep in conversation with Lin. Amanpreet hadn’t realised that Lin was from Cels like Niobe until she realised they were using Trava, an obscure Anglic language that was spoken in parts of Western Cels’ but not many other planets. Amanpreet knew the odd word, enough to recognise that they were discussing translations of one of the Coronan languages but not enough to follow their conversation exactly. She listened for a moment before clearing her throat.

Niobe looked around and grinned. “You should have told me Lin was the team linguist. We used to play together when were little.” Read the rest of this entry »

A/N: A new chapter of Haventon went up yesterday. Don’t forget to check it out.

Andrew and Melissa spoke to Sonia immediately after his session had finished. Sonia listened to Melissa’s idea with a frown.

“Well, we know that he was trying to avoid a repeat of the previous disaster he’d had, and we know the timing of the deaths coincided more with the tear widening – not the initial rip – so that seems reasonable. He may have thought all the problems were caused by the energy leaking in too fast. He was wrong in the case of the Lost Ones but he may have been right about the deaths.” Read the rest of this entry »

A/N: A new chapter of Haventon went up yesterday. Don’t forget to check it out.

Andrew spent the next several minutes pouring his heart out to Melissa about being kidnapped and the pain of knowing that he’d been a part, albeit an unwilling one, in what had happened.

“And now his egg is hatching,” he said finally.

“And you have mixed feelings about giving him another chance?” she asked gently.

Lord of the Wolves

Chapter Two

A/N: Here’s chapter two. Hope you enjoy it peeps.  I’ve also made some changes to Chapter One to fix a massive continuity error between book 1 and 2.

Show no weakness. Colin kept his eyes fixed on the wall of his unfurnished room and forced himself to keep breathing in spite of the pain it caused him. At least it distracted him from the memory of what had happened. Even after several days he couldn’t stomach thinking about his failed initiation. He didn’t know where his parents and their pack had found the human teen they’d sacrificed but they were still angry that he hadn’t been able bring himself to share the feast let alone be the one to actually kill the boy.

He rubbed his cheek, where he had a bruise – one of many – from the savage beating his mother had given him after the ceremony. Read the rest of this entry »

A/N: I’m sorry for another skipped week. I will try and do better. On the upside there should be a new chapter of Haventon tomorrow (If I get it typed in).

The next few days were quiet. The contact ship was passing messages between Corona and the Council, while Promise was negotiating his people providing transport for the Coronans. Both sets of talks seemed to be going well.

Amanpreet has returned to the Whisper to wait as she did not have much to add to the matter. She’d asked Kayla if she thought the Vaians could be behind the problems with Kiath and her newest navigator had frowned at the wall of her cabin for several minutes before replying.

The casserole was wonderful and a nice change after the slightly thin meals of the last few days. However, they did not get to eat it in peace. When they were about half finished, there was a snapping noise from Sarah’s bag.

“Oh!” She bent down and pulled the egg out. There was a small but visible crack in the glassy shell and brown tinted light was glowing out of it. “He’s hatching!” Read the rest of this entry »

A/N: This week’s Whisper will be up on Saturday. Sorry it’s late, peeps.

Matthias was sitting at the kitchen table chopping carrots when they returned. He listened to Sarah explain what had happened with a frown. “”Baby stuff? We can get some, yes, but the egg is that close? I thought it would take weeks or months.” Read the rest of this entry »
