WIP Wednesday - Clans of Kalquor 11:Alien Revolt





             Hope was so intent on visualizing Piras and Kila, that she didn’t react right away when they materialized in front of her. With a third Kalquorian. She blinked at them a full two seconds before it occurred to her that they were right there, standing next to her bed, in the flesh.
              As a flash of shock shot through her body, her mouth dropped open, and Kila quickly put his hand over it. At the same time, Piras stooped down so that he was eye level with her. He spoke quickly. “Easy, Matara. We’re not here to hurt you. We’re spies for the Empire. We want to help you take Copeland down.”
              She stared at him, absorbing the words. Spies? Against the Holy Leader?
              Kila added, “I’m going to let you go. In a few minutes, we’ll bring your father into the conversation, because we have information that will help him in your revolt against Copeland. Can we trust you to not scream, Hope?”
              He knew her name. She couldn’t imagine why that was her first lucid thought. At least I’m not panicking, she thought. Then she noticed how hard and fast her heart drummed. Her body knew to freak out, but her mind was slow on the draw.
              Could she trust them? Did she have a choice? Dear prophets, there were three alien men in her bedroom, and she was in her bed, wearing only a nightgown. A nightgown that covered her from throat to foot, but a nightgown just the same. It was enough to make her feel vulnerable.
              She’d damned sure better pray she could trust them…because they’d done the impossible. She’d watched them appear out of thin air.

Question of the Week

Q: We know there have to be orphans from earth, how are they going to be brought into Kalquorian society, especially the boys?

A: Earther orphans are not brought to Kalquor. The Galactic Council of Planets is in charge of Earther refugees since Earth's government is now non-existent. As depicted in Sister Katherine, an orphanage for those children who lost their parents/guardians has been set up in Galactic Council space.

Thanks for the question!

WIP Wednesday - Clans of Kalquor 11: Alien Revolt



              Kila said, “Speaking of hope…I have interesting news on the young lady you keep encountering on Copeland’s ship. Her name is Hope, which I’m sure you wanted to know.”
              “General Nath’s daughter? Oh, you saw our second encounter.” Piras sighed, knowing the teasing that was coming.
              “I did. You are a shameless flirt, Piras.” He snickered.
              Lokmi wasted no time on jumping in. “You were flirting with the enemy? Admiral, your efforts to gain influence and information know no bounds. Sex as a spy tool…nice.”
              “Shut up, Lokmi. She’s an interesting woman.”
              Kila’s ever-present grin was the widest Piras had ever seen it. “You have no idea. And she’s far from an enemy, it turns out. Her and her father are part of a resistance effort against Copeland.”
              Thunderstruck, Piras stared at him. “General Nath? He’s against Copeland?”
              “Oh yes. I still need to look at the files I gathered to give you the full story. I’m not entirely up to speed on the depth of their activities or how many others are part of this Earther rebellion.”
              Piras’s heart pounded. General Nath was plotting against the Holy Leader. His daughter was involved. “Maybe his ships aren’t as bad off as he’d said. Maybe he’s playing for time too. Kila, I want a full report as soon as possible.”
              Lokmi was smiling almost as much as Kila, catching the excitement. “I’ll also submit a full report on what I found on Sitrel’s destroyer as well, Admiral.”
              “And I can supplement that now that I should have access to the network.” Piras’s mind flew over what they’d learned. It was time to get the mission rolling at full bore. “Let’s compile all our information. Call a meeting with your senior staff, Captain. Everyone needs to review and discuss how we proceed from here. We’ll get together in…three hours?”
              “Yes, Admiral. I should have all the pertinent information about General Nath ready for review by then.”
              The three men headed out to the respective duties. Piras was nearly giddy with excitement over the turn of events. Maybe the potential Earther allies would turn out to be more trouble than they were worth, but Piras was ready to indulge in a little hope.
              He almost laughed at the thought. Given the name of General Nath’s daughter, the idea of indulging in ‘hope’ had an interesting connotation.

Question of the Week

Q: What if a Matara chose/brought together her own clan, would they be allowed to clan her immediately?

A: Under current Kalquorian law, no. The law was written when fertile women were in steadily decreasing supply, and it was determined that only clans which were proven established and stable would be allowed to clan with the all-important female. A Matara could find clanmates and bring them together, but the men would still have to prove themselves capable of offering her an advantageous environment by being in a formal clanship for a year. 

With Earther women now in the mix, there are those campaigning to change the rules of clanning in all respects. As of the events of Clans of Kalquor 11: Alien Revolt, the law remains in effect, however. 

Thanks for the question!

WIP Wednesday - Clans of Kalquor 11: Alien Revolt






             Kila stopped stock still to see Hope, not working on a computer, but standing in the middle of what was apparently her sleeping room. She was naked.
              Taken by surprise, the phased Nobek spent a long moment looking at the young woman. Her neck was long and slender, her shoulders curved splendidly like cups that would fit his palms. Her breasts were small like the rest of her, the tips brown and perfectly round. The thought they would fit even better in his hands than her shoulders brought a surge of heat to his groin. His fingers twitched as he imagined stroking the triangle of glossy black curls demurely hiding her most intimate treasure.
              Somehow, her legs gave him the most pause. Perhaps she was built slight enough that in clothes, she resembled a boy…but out of the brown uniform pants, her legs were shaped better than any woman’s he’d ever seen. Smooth, slender, with lithe curved muscles…the image of those incredible legs wrapped around his ass as he plunged deep into her warmth made his knees weaken for an instant. A wallop of real passion filled his cocks, making him hard.
              It was the sudden, blatant arousal that made Kila realize what he was doing: ogling a woman without her knowledge or permission. Some men might have been all right with that, but Kila was not. In his mind, it was an unforgiveable violation.
              He turned his back, furious with himself. “Apologies, Matara,” he muttered. It didn’t matter she had no idea he was there. She was owed his regrets.
              What his conscience called regret was not shared by his body or mind. He cursed his lack of control as his imagination kept bringing him the clandestine view he’d had. Over and over, his rebellious brain retraced Hope’s compact but fascinating figure.
              Ancestors help him against such a woman as Hope Nath. It wasn’t enough that she was brave and intelligent, which would be enough to attract him in any case. She was damned alluring as well. If he ever met her face to face again, he feared he’d be far more flirtatious than Piras had dared.
