As a brief setup, Aston is being doctored (not to be confused with playing doctor, but the line gets a little blurred in the rest of this particular scene, so who can tell, really?) by a Rulusian woman, and then...well, you'll see soon enough:
“So, you often take a hands-on technique in doctoring your crew?”
“No.” She planted another kiss; this time, the sensations raced full steam ahead.
I stumbled over my words. “Well, then...” She gripped my shoulder and massaged a bit deeper. I stopped talking.
Then, another voice interrupted. “What is this?”
Rione stood in the doorway when I turned to look. Her pressure suit was off, but she still wore the black body suit, while her long black hair was matted from the heat and humidity. Her emotion ridges were deep red in anger.
Poor Aston. I think he's about to find himself in some deep crap. So, if you enjoyed this one, be sure to check out Death Brings Victory over on Amazon (and will soon be up on Barnes and Noble).
