From Book 2# Unification
Delicately she touched, yet for a third time the lipstick brush with its maroon paint to her lips. She sat clothed only in a blue silk bra and underwear on the edge of her large mirrored vanity, wings folded neatly away and tail curled around a draped leg getting prepared for a late dinner.
A sideways glance caused Nadia to exclaim an annoyed “Arrrgh!” as she noticed once more that the gray streak had, despite her best effort to be rid of it returned, now more well-defined than ever before to her brunette hair.
Not a narcissistic impulse, but rather what it foreshadowed drove Nadia to hold such disgust at the sight of this speck of gray which now edged her sumptuous brown mane.
She leaned closer to the mirror, flicked aside the streak of gray as if that might do the trick to remove it. “Not natural!” She said to herself. Someone, Kheira had flipped a switch to remind her that she had but a finite amount of time left to spend with him. Nadia had seen herself in a message transmitted from the future with just such an appearance and her own warning chimed evermore in her ears. “Do not confront Ungal-zaggisi…”
Of course she couldn’t be lucky enough to have gotten the rest of the message so that she might better understand why Sharr should not confront this Ungal-zaggisi. Typical! She thought.
And who was Ungal-zaggisi?
Why would Sharr be forced to confront him as her yet unfulfilled future-self had despondently pleaded for him to avoid doing?
Off the vanity she slid, Nadia shook out her hair and then puckered her lips to let out a long exhale. At last her makeup had turned out perfect! Now to select the right outfit, what would Sharr like to see her in?
The above scene is from the next block of Falcanian Legacy novels, and this one begins the trilogy – “Unification” sees exiled humans seeking out their cousin Falcanians so that they might reclaim Earth from alien invaders. This though will be a long time in coming as there are still two more novels of the first “book” to be released. Always thinking for the future.
