Chapter 150

– 00:00:00:00 –

NearbyNukeSeconds before the shockwave from the explosion reduced me to ash, a barrier of sky-shard exploded from within me and shielded me from the blast. I felt hands on my shoulders, tender hands, ones that I felt like I should know.




That voice! It was both inside my head and a physical presence behind me.


“Gary!?!” I asked as I turned around to face the voice.


Standing in front of me was a dark-skinned man with silver hair, his eyes were like a thousand galaxies all trying to outshine each other, and he had the most devious smile I’d ever seen.


“In the actual flesh,” he replied, “Do you like my hat? I think it makes me look rather fetching.”


Without thinking, I slapped him across the face as hard as I could.


“That’s for making me think you were dead!” I snapped.


“I deserved that,” he replied with a smirk on his face.


And then I grabbed the front of his clothes and pulled him in for a kiss.


“And that’s for saving my life.”


I lingered for longer than I’d intended with that kiss, and when I pulled away, the smug bastards grin was even bigger.


“And I definitely deserved that!”


I glared at him and he just laughed, backing away from me with his arms raised.


“So, what are you?” I asked, trying to figure out how an A.I. was suddenly standing in front of me in the real world.


“I’ll answer all your questions later, for now, we have a ship to catch.”


Gary placed his arms around my waist and instantly I felt myself disintegrate into tiny particles of sky-shard and could sense myself moving through space. In less than a second, I was standing on a spaceship, my spaceship. Small piles of sky-shard dust pooled around my feet and Gary stood beside me, surprisingly with no dust piles around him.


“Friends of yours, I hope?” he chuckled as he casually leaned against the wall.


In front of us were three familiar faces, each one holding a gun to my head.


“Ahhhh, hi guys.”

  1. Gary!! SWOON! 😍😍😍

    I don’t blame Sage for slapping AND kissing him…he’s got a lot of explaining to do. Hopefully, Shaela et al will not be trigger happy!

    Nice save! (And special effects!)

    1. He’s quite the hottie, huh? 😉

      He DOES have a lot of explaining to do! Hopefully, when he does, it’ll wrap up a lot of the loose threads that I’ve got going on. I can imagine Shaela being fin, and Samoa will probably follow suit… Leyva is the wildcard here, what will she do?

      Sage’s personal Knight in shining armour, here to wrap his arms around her and whisk her away to safety!

  2. Gary you devious little brat! ❤️
    I approve of both the slapping AND the kissing (those crazy kids and their passions!)
    Damn, now they have all that explaining to do! Death is simple, life, so complicated! 😱
