My teacher is trying to kill me…
My mates and I are on the run while trying to figure out why our professor wants me dead. Not exactly the punishment I expected for botching an assignment.
To get our happy end on a luxury resort planet, we may have to do the one thing I don’t want my mates to do: abduct another alien.
When the abductee becomes the abductor, something is seriously wrong with the universe.
The third and final part of Trish and her mates’ story, a steamy reverse harem romance.
Professor Katila has finally lost her mind. In the first pages of this book her boyfriends Hex and Hix break up with her in public where she can’t make a scene. Furious she plots revenge involving our favorite abductors and abductee.
The Jade is fending off a vicious attack when the professor shows up on the screen. The only way not to die in this situation is to agree to whatever she wants them to do. That being another abduction, this time of an alien.
Instead of just quietly accepting their fate, they start doing research on the professor to see why she wants Hix and Hex abducted. When they try to report her to the university they response from Katila is swift and hurtful.
With no choice left they fix the damage done to the Jade and proceed to the home planets of their targets. Finding them was easier than expected and the abduction goes without a hitch. Once Hix and Hex regain consciousness they tell their story of the relationship and their plans should Katila retaliate as she has.
This is a favorite scene.
“There’s no way we’re going to return you to her,” Tricia said with determination. She stared at me, as if expecting me to protest, but I had already come to the same conclusion. Handing them over to that crazed female was as bad as abusing them ourselves.
“That’s very kind of you, human,” Hex said and shot her a warm look. “But we always knew this moment would come. We’ve been waiting for it. And we’ve not been sitting around idle while back on our home planet. We came up with a plan long ago. Now we just need your help to put it into action.”
“What plan?” I asked, reminding them that I was the one they had to convince.
“What matters most to Kat – besides her offspring fantasy – is her work. Without it, she’s nothing. No influence, no power, no purpose. So, we’re going to take it all away from her.”
“We already tried reporting her to the IGU authorities. In return, she destroyed our brain slugs, making us unable to communicate with our mate for a while,” I said, my heart sinking at how useless their plan was. I’d expected something more from these two clearly intelligent academics. They’d had time to come up with a really good plan and all they had was the idea to destroy Katila’s klatting reputation? Bah.
“We have evidence,” Hix grinned slyly. “We’ve got enough to get her in front of a tribunal. Maybe even a criminal trial, if we send this to the right people. She’s bent a lot of rules over the years. Ignored student welfare. Even endangered her students.”
“You could say that” Matar interrupted. “She klatting shot at us.”
Hex nodded, which looked a little weird considering that Hix’s head stayed in the same position. “We can add your recordings of that to our files. That will make it even more damning. The juiciest bit however is that we were her students when she first started having sexual relations with us. Of course, we were willing and over age, but the IGU strictly forbids relationships between staff and students. Add to that the fact that she handcuffed us to a bed, robbing us of our freedom, plus threatening to physically harm us… it’s not looking good for her. Especially because we filmed it all.”
Trish gasped. “You’ve got it on camera?”
The torso-brothers grinned. “We knew she was going to cross a line,” Hix explained. “So, we installed a hidden camera in our bedroom. To be honest, we’d assumed she’d try and do worse than just handcuff us. Still, it was a good decision. We recorded some of her craziest outbursts, ready to be sent to Professor Z, the IGU headmaster. Once he sees that, she’ll be without a job.”
I shook my head. “That doesn’t sound like a good plan to me at all. So what, she’ll be out of work. What will stop her from coming after us, after you? I bet she had a good salary and has saved enough to pay for some space pirates to attack the Jade.”
Hex wasn’t dismayed by my scepticism. “There’s a paragraph in the IGU contract which states that whoever will fall foul of the University’s rules and regulations forfeits any salary paid to them in the past, as well as assigned accommodation. Her bank account will be empty. She won’t have the means to take revenge. She’ll be powerless.”
“I say we kill her,” Matar muttered. I was tempted to agree with him, as tasteless as that option was. Neither of us were murderers, but we’d do whatever we had to in order to keep our mate safe. Trish was our priority.
Hix and Hex looked shocked at the idea. “We loved her, once,” Hix said, putting a lot of emphasis on the l-word. “She did horrible things, but we could never kill her. That’s not our way.”
“No killing,” Trish confirmed.
“No killing,” I repeated as the responsible, dutiful Captain I was. “But let’s not make it too easy on her. We need to thoroughly destroy her until she regrets all she’s done.”
“I want her to beg us to take her in,” Hix said darkly. “I want her to repent and apologise.”
Trish laughed. “I can’t see her apologising for anything. She’s not that kind of person.”
“You’re right,” Hex confirmed. “It will be a new learning experience for her. Apologising 101.”
