It´s been a week full of ups and downs and I apologize for being mainly absent. Hopefully, I´ll get my head screwed on right in a few days and start being more active again both here and on other social networks like Facebook. But, let´s go on to the snippet.
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. Clare is now begging for him to let her go...

Hope you're all having a great weekend!

"Please, don't make me go."
Resignation. He heard it in her plea as much as her voice. She was beseeching him, begging him to spare her life as had done countless others in her stead. The thought that this little human was similar to his enemies comforted and hardened him at the same time. The irrational tightening in his chest that made him want to wrap his arms around her vanished.
"Be glad that I am not stabbing you with my sword, Clare Luna."
Firmly grasping her upper arm Serrik led her back toward the bunker.
