Why I Wanted To Be Part Of The Alien Alphas Box Set By Cynthia Sax
Every year, I write a short story for reading buddies. I knew this year I’d write Zip’s story. He belonged to a group of three cyborg friends and all of his friends had already found their females and their happy ever afters. It was important he found love also.
But I had a great idea for a stand-alone story set in the Dark Thoughts world. It was longer than my normal short stories yet shorter than my usual releases. I didn’t know what to do with this idea.
As I was pondering this awesome dilemma, Sue Lyndon, one of my writing buddies, approached me about the Alien Alphas Box Set. It was as though she had created this opportunity specifically for me at the exact moment I needed it.
The Box Set would be releasing in January. I didn’t have a release planned for January. It would include brand new SciFi Romance stories that were approximately 60 pages long. That length fit my Dark Thoughts story idea. There were some exciting voices in SciFi Romance participating. I wanted to work with them.
Not one to question fate, I, of course, said yes. Dark Warlord is one of twenty-three SciFi Romance stories in the Alien Alphas Box Set. It is sexy and a little bit dark and action-packed. I LOVE this story and I really think you’ll love it also.
“Fighter Batu has vowed to protect the settlement.” Genine relayed that information, bracing for resistance. He was an unknown male, would soon kill her. Her friends wouldn’t like that.
“Fighter Batu is a monster.” Ema-974 spat on the white sand.
“Fighter Batu is an honorable warrior.” And he was a bit of the beast. Genine glanced at him. He waited alone, his sword in his right hand, a scowl on his primitive face. The male was ready for battle. That shouldn’t turn her on as much as it did. “You wouldn’t judge me harshly if I killed him in battle, would you?”
“No,” Ema-974 hastily answered. “You’re facing him so Ema-1006 won’t have to.”
“By taking her place, you’ve saved her lifespan.” Di-971 looked one wrong word away from bursting into tears. “We’ll be forever grateful to you.”
“Then don’t judge Fighter Batu harshly for killing me in battle.” Genine was a warrior. She knew she’d die with a weapon in her hands. Her fingers tightened around the hilt of her sword. It was smaller, lighter than Batu’s but the blade had inflicted its share of death. “It is my wish, my last wish, that he safeguard the settlement.”
Di-971 made a hurting sound.
“We will honor your wish.” Ema-974 lifted her chin. “But you could defeat him.”
“I won’t defeat him.” Genine watched as the victor of the previous battle exited the ring.
Once he was out of view of the audience, he rushed to a patch of sand, bent over, and vomited, that scent mixing with the aroma of urine and blood. Genine gazed at him with sympathy. First kills were always emotionally traumatic.
A scavenged ship panel had been modified to carry the losers out of the ring. The corpse was a crimson mess. The would-be warrior had been a mere solar cycle older than she’d been when she faced her first battle.
If her brothers hadn’t surrounded her, compensating for her errors, she would have met the same fate as the boy. She would have died on the battlefield.
Her brothers weren’t with her now and she was tired, so very tired of fighting alone. Her glance slid to Batu. She’d give him the show he requested, battling him and death with every part of her, but she accepted her future.
“You should leave.” She told the two females, not wanting them to see her die.
“We’re staying.” Ema-974 insisted.
A horn sounded three times. The gates swung open. Genine hadn’t the time to argue with the females. The battle was starting.
