Welcome to the final stop on the Heart’s Last Chance tour! Have you gotten sick of my aliens yet? Or do you want a chance to win your copy? Leave me a comment with your contact info, and a winner (or two…I’ve been known to choose more!) will be chosen at random at the end of the month.
Yesterday on Tabitha’s blog, I talked about the ‘what happens next’ question. Part of what goes along with that topic is disagreement. Not every relationship is sunshine and roses….sometimes tiny arguments arise. Today I thought I would treat you to a mild disagreement between Tricia and Brock, over his little sister KiRah’s choices. Tricia and Brock observed KiRah embracing her
Chosen, and Brock expressed
disapproval. Is he being a male
chauvinist or simply an overprotective older brother?
Everyone has an imaginary friend at some point, right? Well, what if you discover yours is actually an alien who is fascinated with Earth?
Tricia Alexander's dreams are haunted by a mystery lover. When she discovers the man she met in a nightclub is from another planet, will she accept his story or kick him out?
Brock was young Tricia's imaginary friend and confidant, and watched her grow up over the years. After gaining permission from the leaders of his planet, he sought to bond with her twice before, but with little results. When he's given a final chance, will he succeed? Or will a family crisis prove too much?
“You know they will be Bonded in a few years.”
“I know. I used to think it was funny to spy on NiKoh and BeSai before they were Bonded. SaLie and LoGar were fascinated with the Xaxonities. But KiRah is a baby.”
“She’s what, eighteen? From what your mother has said, she’s almost of age,” Tricia reminded him. “I know she’s your baby sister, but you’re going to have to accept her choice. How did she first feel when you told her about me?”
Brock looked at her. “That is different.”
“How so? ReNei told me how she tried to dissuade you from pursuing me.”
“I knew what I wanted, and nothing was going to stop me.” Brock folded his arms across his chest.
Tricia tipped her head to one side. “Then how do you know you’re right and KiRah’s wrong? Flip it around, Brock. You’re the youngest and pursuing someone nearly thirty years younger than you. Your older siblings question your decision, even expressing disapproval at every turn. How does that make you feel?”
“Do not use your Earthling psychology on me.”
“Then quit acting like a jackass, and be happy for your sister.” Tricia’s temper flared.
“Yes, your sisters haven’t followed an exactly approved path, and neither did your brother. You went outside your solar system and brought me home, an alien who has to drink water all the time, because your liquids are too spicy for me. But all you can say is, ‘I know what I wanted and nothing was going to stop me.’ Can’t KiRah say the same? Or does she have to grow up in order to say that?” She put her hands on her hips. “If she’s anything like teenagers on my world, she may run off with DaTil just to get away from you. Is that what you want?”
