Thanks for your encouraging comments. This week things have gone better and slowly but surely, I'm getting back on track.
In today's snippet, you guys will finally meet Mikelo!
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. Finally, he drags her back to his own world...

Hope you're all having a great weekend!

Mikelo watched her.
She was deep in slumber, her eyes and mind closed to the new world around her. A world so different, yet so similar to her own, or at least so he thought. She’d been here before once and she had not been frightened by what she’d seen. Why was she scared now?
Even though he’d known her briefly as a child, she was strong. Had she lost that strength? Had she become like the rest of her race? Too weak to do little else but complain? Too weak to fight? To live?
