Happy Sunday, lovelies!
It's the end of the school year and I'm running crazy, so apologies for not signing up next week and being a tad bit late this week. On to the posrt!
Let's recap: Clare (aka Luna), has met a mysterious, yet hunky, alien who's come to take her back to his home. She believes he's Mikelo, the alien boy she'd met twenty years ago... but he's presented himself as Serrik. In shock, Clare doesn't know how to react. Serrik taunts her and asks her why she is not screaming. In the previous snippet he tells her that her destiny is tied with his people. Clare denies it and he threatens her. Serrik will do whatever it takes to get Clare back to his world and to Mikelo.
Serrik has let Clare know that if she doesn't adapt to his alien world she'll die (be killed). Clare runs and Serrik follows at a slow pace until he gets tired, hides behind a tree and re-captures her.Snippet 11

Hope you're all having a great weekend!

"Be still, human for you cannot escape,” he whispered.
“No.” She struggled for a few more seconds, but Serrik tightened his hold against her chest and grasped her chin, aware that with her pale complexion, she would likely bruise.
"I've tried being what you humans call kind, and understanding, Clare, for you are not used to our people and our ways, but you're not cooperating."
"I don't know what you want.” Her voice broke and she cleared it. “Let me go and release me from this- this- this spell or whatever it is you’ve done to me.”
Serrik couldn't help it and laughed. The little human was humorous.
"Spell? There is no spell, little one for this is not magic. This is the consequence of a promise and promises always have consequences.”
