Starcrossed Lovers Ch. 9Chapter 9
Seth eventually opened his eyes, yawned, and stretched himself. It was time to rise. Rubbing his head he was thankful to note the burning in his brain had stopped. Thrown his legs off the side of the bed he noticed at the foot were his folded clothes and a fresh towel. She is still taking care of me? He couldn't help but feel flattered and loved. He heard a noise coming from outside Desrye's voice. Good, she was home. Seth stretched once more and walked out to meet her.
OOPS! Seth had hopped to surprise her by arriving naked but hadn't expected to find two stallions sitting at her bar. He accidentally backed up against the door which had closed on him. Reaching behind him he couldn't find the handle as he blindly groped for it. He had little recourse but to cover himself with his bare hands.
"Hello, Seth," Argento nodded casually.

A Night Out
They took an elevator from Desrye's flat down to the street level. Seth found a temporary parking spot while he picked up his date, which he insisted on taking his ride. The truck was indeed large enough to accommodate Desrye's anatomy, thankfully. It had been a gas hog back in his old home, but fossil fuel around here was cheap that stations practically gave it away.
Upon getting underway, Seth turned on his player to show off some of the music him and his former band, played. The specific genre was called Technical Death Metal. About 10 seconds into the song, Desrye clamped her hands over her ears and begged the music stop.
"Digital music doesn't ring in my ears very well," Desrye explained. "Do you have anything acoustic?"
Seth found a country music CD and played it instead. He blushed from embarrassment. Oh well, he thought to himself, <

Desrye felt a little nervous as the time came. She hadn't dated since Lucas and she didn't really count Foudon. With all the terror she felt in her recent life, her confidence was shaken. Normally she would never let anyone get to her, but this was different. She wanted to make a good first impression. There was also the question of who was he? The blind date was actually quite exciting! She couldn't wait to meet him, and at the same time she dreaded it.
The door chimed.
"Well, time to meet him," she muttered to herself, her heart racing with slight fear and anticipation. "Remember what mother said," she reminded herself. Her mother, Malisal, had given her wonderful advice when it came to meeting new ones. Desrye recalled her words well: 'When ever meeting a stallion for the first time, close your eyes and smell him first. However yo

For a unicorn or Yu'than, she was gorgeous, Seth thought. He sat in daze staring at the beauty he saw. She was short for a Yu'than mare. Most of the other stallions and even the mares were taller than him, averaging around 7.5 to 8 feet tall. This one, her name was Edella, was a meek 5'11". She was a palomino mare, gold fur and white hair. Her eyes sparkled brown, being accentuated by her glasses. Those glasses made her look very cute. Her figure was flattering, with her short stature she had curves that reminded Seth of some of the most sexy women he had seen. But Seth wasn't interested in dating women. No, his taste he realized were drawn to these equine creatures.
"So," Edella said running her fingers over the spherical key pads of her computer terminal. "I've registered you under Refugee status. Here is GPS track

Unsafe, would be the word. Everywhere Desrye walked, everything she did, she felt unsafe. When she slept it was a light sleep. When walked her beat as a Benon City Sentinel, she kept her hand on her gun. When trouble arose, she was very cautious. And almost always she had someone she trusted with her. She was always expecting something to jump out at the shadows. The term 'Never Again' repeated in her mind.
It was expected, all things considered. She had just returned home a few weeks ago from having been abducted. She had been the target of two hostile galactic powers. Of course she didn't know she was being stalked. No, she didn't know until she responded to a threat to her sister Estelle. When she came to the rescue, they both were abducted.
Desrye felt a wave of guilt hit her as it usually did when she thought
Starcrossed Lovers: Ch 1Chapter 1
Seth MacCiaran knew tragedy. He practically lived with it his whole life. However, what he beheld right now was not tragic but pathetic. "You missed the Star Trek convention, pal." He couldn't help but chuckle to himself. When he saw the hitchhiker walking in the rain, Seth couldn't help but feel sorry for him. It was frequently cloudy in and around Edmond Canada, but sometimes the weather took you by surprise. Today it rained. But when Seth let the poor fool in his truck, he couldn't help but feel even sorrier for the guy when he beheld his 'Spock' ears. What a poor place to be wearing a lame costume. He probably doesn't even talk to women without using his credit card, he amused himself.
"Excuse me?" The passenger had an annoyingly calm demeanor.
"You've got Vulcan ears on," Seth rolled his eyes having to explain his joke.
