N’Goteth looked at Nara with a meaningful twinkle in his eye, and Ylana was sure this signified more than she could ever have guessed.  The three of them sat together in N’Goteth’s living room, which was adorned in decorations so exotic that Ylana shouldn’t have noticed the subtle communications passing between her companions.

“My colleague Orton will be joining us shortly,” N’Goteth explained as he sipped a fluorescent yellow beverage from a jeweled goblet.  “He’s the scientist who freed my people of the Kryllians by devising a way to permanently alter our physiology to be hostile to them, and he can do the same for you.”

Nara gazed at Ylana, and placing a gentle hand on her trembling knee, added, “Orton truly can help you, but you must be devoted to the cause, because his help comes with a price.”

  1. I wonder what the price will be...great chapter, as always!
    There's an award for you on my blog :)

  2. Nicely written. I do wonder what the price will be too.

  3. Should we be cautious about getting help?

  4. Really creative and interesting take on the prompt. I loved the vivid imagery of the cluttered living room and the tension between the people. And great cliffhanger ending!
