“It was,” Kayla agreed. “I hope they dig out all of the people behind this mess.”

A/N: Sorry it’s a little short and rough. I have had a headache all day.

The next morning Amanpreet woke early only to discover that the council had already gone into an emergency session over Kayla’s evidence and the attack on Merit. She couldn’t get a pass to actually view the session in the chamber at such short notice but, fortunately, all the Council’s deliberations were streamed everywhere on Altheia for those who wanted to watch. So she grabbed a bowl of cereal and settled down to watch.

The rest of the journey was uneventful and they arrived at Alethea in good time in spite of the delay. After they docked Amanpreet and the rest of the crew escorted Prima and Merit to where the official reception committee awaited them. The small group of councillors from the various member species were surprised and obviously flattered when the Talisians greeted them in their own languages and escorted them to their prepared apartment.

A/N: Now that the site is back I will be updating Whisper every Wednesday!

 

 

“We got a reply to Merit’s report already. The council is very concerned by his theory,” Niobe told them the next day. “They say they are contacting the Talis and Corona computers for more data but I think they are pretty much convinced.”

A/N: Sorry about the delay on the last couple of chapters of Lord of the Wolves. Have a chapter of Whisper to make up for it.

 

When Mark finished his stint in the dome Prima immediately ambushed him with her request for navigation training. Amanpreet smothered a grin with her hand as the small Talosian actually bounced around him while making her request. Mark watched Prima’s antics for a moment with a bemused expression.

“You want to learn to navigate?” he asked. “That’s not a quick thing to learn, Queen Prima.” Read the rest of this entry »

Once they dropped out of hyperspace Amanpreet and Prima swapped with Mark and headed to the Whisper’s galley as Prima was hungry. Prima’s diplomat companion was already there and preparing a soup while Vanna stood at one of the counters preparing some sort of hearty salad for human consumption. In order to reach the hob the Talisian had to stand on a box which Vanna must have fetched from the hold.

“If you feel sick or unwell at any point during the jump let me know,”? Amanpreet told Prima as she prepared for the first jump of the journey to Aletheia. “We?ll drop out of hyperspace and let you back into the shielded section if you do.”?

“I will!”? Prima had two of her arms pressed against the transparent dome and was staring at the stars. “This is amazing even before we jump. Once we?re in hyperspace can I ask questions?”? Read the rest of this entry »
