It’s the return of Thirsty Thursdays! Woohoo!
Space & Time
Ever wish you could be a cool alien and live in space and get to do awesome stuff?
Jregli never did. All she wanted was a regular meal each day and fewer beatings. What she got was a new Master, two meals each day, a Space Station chock-full of aliens to play with, and even more fear of a horrible, untimely death.
Jregli is a slave, and the Galaxy Star Mutuality frowns quite severely on slavery. Granted, the Yerbrans have retained the legal right to keep slaves on their homeworld, but Jregli isn’t on Yerbra Home any more. And her new Master, Shdr’edno, is not pleased with his latest acquisition. Especially once he realizes just who it was who tricked him.
Fortunately, Jregli discovers that she can make friends rather easily, and they rally behind her. From the fiercely loyal Hunsid Twins (who tend to act before thinking and only think when forced to) to the grandmotherly Rundion to the Station Commander himself, she finds that being a slave doesn’t mean what she thought it meant.
Commander Neim has his suspicions about the Yerbran girl, but without proof, he can’t intervene. That is actually a good thing, since he’s about to have more on his plate than any human could wish for. But that comes in Volume 2. Which is conveniently online for your reading pleasure.
