When Fallon takes a pod aboard her ship, she is shocked to find a younger version of herself and a man who looks like her lover...
Fallon Montgomery may be the most brilliant AI and mechanical engineer the IUA has ever seen. But even that brilliance can not overcome the feeling of overwhelming dread that she has when a derelict pod is taken aboard her ship. She is even more shocked to find within that pod, a younger version of herself and a man who looks like her lover.
As I walked down the corridor I suddenly had an overwhelming sense of tragedy, of having walked this way before, of committing the same crimes as were about to be committed. I tried to shake the feelings. The closer to the bay I walked, the worse they became. I leaned against the side of the corridor, bathed in sweat. Other crewmembers passed me, looking at me strangely.
I pushed myself away from the wall, my determination hardening around me like a shell. I needed to know what lay behind these feelings, and also what lay behind the bay door. There was an obvious connection; it was as if my feelings were centered inside there.
I nearly jumped out of my skin when I was dragged through a side access into a supply closet.
"What the..." I began as two able hands began to grope me through my blue government uniform. I knew those hands. "What do you think you are doing?" I breathed to the only man I had made love to in five years. While we had an on-again, off-again relationship, I could always say it was interesting. Aidan Chapel was one gorgeous hunk of a man with curly shoulder-length dark hair, aqua eyes, and a muscle-toned body that many of my shipmates wanted for themselves.
He told me once that the reason people perceived him as handsome were his eyes, in combination with his olive complexion. Add in his hair and he looked like Adonis. I smiled. He was all mine...not once in five years had he looked at anyone else. And I never tried to second-guess fate on this issue.
"What does it feel like I'm doing?" Aidan spun me around, looking me over while holding me against the wall. "You are one beautiful woman."
I gazed into his amazing aqua eyes and smiled. I met Aidan when we first boarded the Lanko together as ship's engineers over five years ago. While I rose steadily through the ranks, Aidan contented himself with being the chief communications engineer. The first thing that I remember seeing were his legs. He wore shorts, which were very non-regulation then and now. And I liked his ass...it happened to be one of his most admirable traits, along with those aqua eyes.
His mouth swooped to mine, nuzzling and nibbling my lips, moving across my cheek to my ear. Delicately, he blew warm air into that sensitive part of my anatomy, making me shiver with delight before coming back to my lips. He traced their fullness with his tongue, finally slipping inside the warm recesses of my mouth, allowing the passion to build slowly within my groin and other sensitive parts. It took everything I had to pull away.
"We really should go," I whispered as he licked my neck. "You know I'm supposed to be there."
"We have time for a quickie," he murmured, slowly unzipping my uniform. Unzipping the crisp fabric apart all the way down the front of my body allowed him access to the microfiber undershirt covering my breasts and stomach. Gently, his large hands moved under the material to tweak first one, then the other nipple of my very sensitive breasts. This man knew all my erogenous zones.
"We really shouldn't," I breathed as his mouth moved down to continue his assault on my body.
"Who says that I ever do what I'm supposed to?" he murmured against my skin.
Breathing in my scent, his mouth blazed a hot wet trail to my nipple, working it smoothly, teasing it into a hard nub that made my groin clench in response. Quickly, he switched to the other breast while his hand moved still lower. In short order, he had made me into a quivering, moaning piece of flesh ready for him to ram his long, thick cock into me.
"That door better damn well be locked," I muttered in irritation. The last thing I needed was the Captain barging into the middle of my tryst.
"It is." He looked up from my breast with the most devastating grin I had ever seen on his handsome face. "You have too many clothes on."
Slowly, he began pulling my uniform down from my shoulders, making each tug a sensual gesture. Aidan followed his hands down my body and knelt in front of me, his tongue doing things to my belly button that he had never done to me before while I stood.
