Ka looked into Tiffany’s eyes, giving a weary smile. She caressed her companion’s cheek.

“I am well enough, Tiffany, only a little rattled by that terrible trip,” she said reassuringly. “Do you know where we are, Darling?”

“I do not. I only know that the stars glow brighter here than I have ever seen, and the night is so very black. I hear no motors. I hear shouts and the beating of drums. I am afraid we may be in a place completely unfamiliar to us.”

Notes:
When Base Lust-69 exploded at the end of Paraji's Prisoners, those occupying the base were thrown through wormholes to different places in time and space. Vampire-werewolf hybrid Tiffany Walton and fox maiden Ka Barnard ended up in a mysterious dark forest somewhere in Earth's past.

  1. Trouble afoot. It seemed, at first, that all would be well but NO>

    1. In this series, all is well briefly at times, but never for long.

  2. If they don't know where they are, it's going to be hard to formulate an intelligent plan for what to do next. You've plunked into a pretty little fix!

    1. The characters in this series don't do a whole lot of intelligent thinking. They fly by the seat of their pants and think with their, shall we say, bits.

  3. Interesting, the way they speak. I'm looking forward to next week.

    1. Tiffany is a modern Chinese woman and Ka is a 420-year-old Caucasian/Japanese fox maiden. They both speak English reasonably well, although the way they say things might seem a bit stilted, formal, and sometimes awkward.

  4. I hope they figure out where they are. Intriguing snippet.

    1. They will know something soon. It may not be something they want to know, however!

  5. "I hear drums." Never a good thing. Looking forward to their adventure.

    1. Usually not, especially when one has watched a lot of B movies, like I have.

  6. Here it starts. Sounds like they've arrived at a place not nearly so evolved as the one they left. :-) Interesting premise.

    1. True, although in fairness, the place they left was no great shakes either.

  7. I love Ka's description of where they are.

    1. It sounds almost peaceful, except for the pervasive war drums. ;-)
