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.
In this snippet, I've skipped a few lines where Clare asks Serrik to stop watching her and he says he can't because he gave his word that he would take her back to Mikelo and otherwise she'd run. Clare says she gave him his word but Serrik disagrees and explains that words and promises have a much deeper meaning.

"It is the way of our people, Clare. You will learn and you will become one of us."
She blinked. Her lips parted. She blinked again.
"What if I don't?"
He placed his hand over the hilt of his sword. There was only one alternative for those that did not adapt.
