“So how did your lesson go?” Amanpreet asked after councillor Krna had gone.

“Well, I think!” Prima replied. “I don’t quite understand Kska body language yet but she seemed pleased with me.”

A/N: Check out my two new stories Lawgiver’s Blade (Wednesdays) and Tales of the First (Saturdays).

Amanpreet managed to get a place in the viewing chamber for The Talisian and Coronan introductions to the Council and even given Niobe’s reassurances she couldn’t help worrying at her lip a little as Prima and Merit were introduced.

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.”

“I’m not surprised.” Amanpreet leaned back in the captain’s chair and nodded. “It makes a great deal of sense.” She sighed heavily. “Why do they have to be related to us?” Read the rest of this entry »

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 »

A/N: Hey, Peeps! Please read this post. I’m afraid it’s a begging post but please take a look.

I could really use your help.

“What’s that human saying?” Umi said when they arrived back on the station. “Cat among the pigeons? Yes, this news about our enemies has really put the cat among the pigeons with the council. They are still arguing about the best response.”

“But we do have an initial response,” Midori said. “They want to initiate contact before they reach us but given the time we have due to them being limited to sublight speeds they want to try and come up with a treatment for their issues first as an olive branch.”

“That might work,” Prima said. “Or it might just make them more dangerous. Immortal and as resilient as you are – that would be scary.” Read the rest of this entry »

“How will the hive work while you are at Aletheia?” Amanpreet asked.

“It will be alright,” Prima said. “The others know what to do and one of the diplomats will be coming with me to help even though this is a bit outside the norm for them. It’s a bit out of the norm for everyone” She entwined two of her arms around Amanpreet’s again. “I’m so excited for this trip. There’s so much to learn!” She span around on her stumpy legs with surprising agility dragging Amanpreet into a joyous dance. “It’s so good to be alive!” The other members of her hive joined in spinning sinuously in a circle around them.

A/N: Sorry  this  is late this week.

“These stories are very disturbing,” Prima said after she had read through a few from Amanpreet’s books. “The callous casualness of the way they treated their subjects. I know they are horrible but you think they’d treat their own kin with more respect. I didn’t think I could detest them more than I already did, but this does that. I mean I can understand why they were doing the experiments given the genetic number that has apparently been done on them but the sheer cruelty of this was completely unnecessary.” Read the rest of this entry »
