Heading into space.
A few hours later and I'm suited up in my shiny new spacesuit along with the rest of our group, tucking my helmet under my arm as we're walking towards the space shuttle.
I look over to Sasha; she looks nervous. Me well I'm not the least bit nervous, I'm just ready to get off this planet. I take Sasha's hand smiling as I give her a squeeze, turning to her as I ask,” are you okay?”
“Yeah, “this shit's just got real,” she replies with a pale face. I laugh as she takes a deep breath, and a light sheen of sweat covers her skin.
“Yeah, let the adventure begin,” I cry out. Sasha laughs, but it doesn't quite reach her eyes.
Our little group climbs up the steps and into the space shuttle. The Cadet Captain makes sure we're all suited up properly before fastening us into the seats, checking the restraints are secure.
The huge engines fire up with a force that throws us back into our seats. Sasha cries out her knuckles turning white as she grips the chair, “Oh’ fuck.”
She says as she grabs hold of my hand as the timer starts its counts down
Were thrown further back into our seats as the shuttle heads towards the sky at breathtaking speed, “Oh, God, Oh, God,” Sasha repeats over and over as we rocket towards the stars.
“Hang on, Sasha; We'll soon be in space.” I laugh.
I don't feel fear just awe as we watch the Earth, getting smaller and smaller. Its amazing planet Earth is just a tiny dot in the vast universe. I look out the little window full of wonder. I've always imagined this moment for me; this is a dream come true. The universe is more beautiful than I could have ever imagined.
“Wow, Sasha, it's So beautiful,” I say.
The spaceship has finally slowed down now as we float in space. Sasha has finally let go of my hand as she looks out of the window, “Yeah, It's beautiful,” she replies with a smile on her face.
It's not long before we're docking at the space station. I hear Sasha letting out a breath of relief; I'm sad the journey is over so soon, she turns to me, her eyes wide as she says, “Wow, This place is huge.” I look out the window at the space station; It's nothing like I was expecting. It's like a giant floating hotel. We headed out of the shuttle to introduce ourselves to our second-year leaders and partners.
Two young men walk towards us, they are around our age, maybe a couple of years older, one of them calls my Name, “Megan Harding?” I step forward cringing as his eyes look over me from head to toe, trust me to get the creep. I'm Max, And you're with me.” he says.
The other man steps forward with a smile on his face; he looks at Sasha as he says, “ so you must be Sasha Harrison then?” Sasha’s face lights up as she replies, “yes.”
he smiles as he says “Hi, it's nice to meet you, I'm Brandon Williams, I'm your year two cadet leader,
”It's nice to meet you too, Brandon,” she replies with a blush.
Well, I'm glad at least one of us has a friendly leader, I laugh as I look at Sasha, Yep she's definitely into him. I watch as Brandon leads her away, leaving me alone with Mr sleazebag, Just my luck.
“Follow me”, he says as he strides off down the corridor leaving me running behind, he comes to a stop in front of a door before opening it and gesturing for me to step inside.“This is your room we start early; I'll be here at 6 am, get some sleep, you're going to need it.” he turns and leaves without any further acknowledgement.
I step into the room, looking around surprised. It's bigger than I thought it would be, but then again the whole ship is bigger than I thought, It’s fucking huge.
I sink onto the bed, looking out at the massive window, Wow, it's so peaceful. I soon fall into a deep sleep. It's been an eventful day that's for sure.
A loud knocking on the door wakes me up. Checking my watch, it's 5.45 am I open the door and peep out, Max is standing on the other side, “Are you ready?”
“Good Morning to you too, It's 5.45 am you said 6 am,” I mumble.
He looks at me with a smirk,” by the time we've had breakfast; it will be 6.”
“Well, maybe you should have said that then.” I snap back at him knowing full well he's done this on purpose. I run into the bathroom throwing on my suit and tying my hair into a high ponytail, that will have to do, I think to myself with a sigh.
Opening the door and the asshole is sitting on my bed, checking his watch. He turns to look at me, “Oh the Princess is finally ready” I cringe as he checks me out again, I can see today's going to be a fun day especially with Mr happy here.
We head to the canteen, and I immediately feel better once I see Sasha. She's deep in conversation with Brandon; these two have some serious chemistry between them.
Sasha turns to look at me as I walk in, “ hey good morning Megan” she says with a smile, whilst Brandon asks. Hi, Megan, did you sleep okay?”
I smile at Brandon. He seems friendly, “much better than I expected I, Guess I didn't realise how much space travel takes it out of you.” I reply.
“Better get used to it, Princess.” Max, the asshole says, “the name is Megan.”
I mumble, I swear I'm going to kill this guy before the day is done. Sasha raises her brow as she says, “Princess?”
Max smirks, “Yeah, Princess wanted to have a lie in this morning.” I bang my fist down on the table, “listen, Maxie, If you had told me the right time, I would have been here waiting for you.”
Tomorrow I’m going to make sure I'm in the canteen before this asshole gets a chance to come to my room.
Brandon laughs as he hits Max on his arm, “Leave it out, Maxie. It's their 1st day.” Max mumbles, “I'll be in the space pod, bring them down when they've finished their breakfast, and don't call me Maxie again.” I shout after him,” then don't call me, Princess.”
I watch as the asshole stomps off, before turning to ask Brandon. “What's his problem?”
He shrugs his shoulders, “ I don't know, I guess he's not a junior cadet anymore.”
Sasha turns to Brandon, “so what's the pod?” Brandon’s eyes light up as he talks, ”the gravity pod, You ladies are going to get your first taste of space gravity,” he laughs, shaking his head as we both squeal our excitement.
I can't wait!
Chapter threeGravityWe spend the next couple of hours floating around in the flight area, wow gravity is amazing.Max is still sulking somewhere although I'm grateful he's keeping out of my way.Sasha loves it, and I can't help but look at Brandon as his face lights up as he watches her, I guess the attraction is mutual.Brandon shouts out, "so how are you ladies finding it?" I reply, shouting out from my upside-down angle, "it's amazing."Sasha laughs as she goes to reply, "Yeah, oh……" she goes to shout out as she spins to the side, Brandon reaches out a hand to steady her, "are you okay, Sasha?" He asks, she replies with a blush, "I am now." Then they both look at each other, before Brandon says, "come on, let's go and grab a drink before we head into the space bay." "What are we doing next Brandon, " I ask when we walk into the canteen."We'll be showing you ladies the spaceships; we might be able to take the repair pods out."I turn to look at him, "what are the repair pods?"
Chapter fourMaking amendsThe hatch opens up in front of my eyes as I manoeuvre the little pod towards the hatch and out into space, looking out to the vast expanse of space it makes you realise just how small you really are. Max has me flying the tiny pod up to the top of the station, where he shows me how to use the robot arms, it's a little tricky at first, but I soon get the hang of it. I bring the arms out from the side of the pod ready to cut a piece of training cable, one snip to cut it and the special hands to rewire before I bring the arms back to the side closing the little hatch up. Easy, I think to myself with a smile.Max pats my shoulder as he says, "I've got to admit it you're very good at this, Megan, I think I owe you an apology."“Thanks, Maxie,” I say with a grin as he laughs behind me before he says,“You're nowhere near the pampered Princess I first thought you were. Can we call a truce? I’m really sorry, Megan." He says with a genuine smile.“Yeah, that would
Chapter fiveThe handsome king.The other man soon returns with some kind of cutting tools they begin to cut me out of the mangled wreckage, the pain rips up my leg making me cry out as the blade cuts through the steel, The pain is unbearable, and I'm grateful when the darkness comes, and I slip unconscious."She's lost consciousness again Halturian.""Hurry, let's pull her out while she can't feel anything.""Okay, her legs are free." "She's bleeding bad brother." They work together quickly, freeing her from the tangled wreckage of the space pod. The handsome Alien gently picks her up as the other tries to stem the bleeding from the wound in her leg; he looks back to the male in the pod as he asks."What about him?"The Alien looks back at the man who is already a deadly shade of grey."It's too late to save him. Check if he has any pulse though."Nothing." Is the grim reply."Let's get the female to the healers, she's bleeding out, and I'll send some crew back to retrieve his body
Chapter sixSaving his people. I'm woken up to a soft touch on my face. I slowly open my eyes and find the handsome man is sitting on a chair next to my bed, his hand softly stroking my cheek, as he says.“I'm Sorry little female, I didn't mean to wake you.”“You stayed,”I whisper, looking into his blue eyes. “Yes, I've been here all night. I didn't want you to wake up in a strange place all alone.”He says with a smile.“Oh, Thank you,” I reply. “Your welcome little female,”He says with a smile. “Megan.... My name's Megan.” I say.“Megan,”He says my name as though he's testing it, then he smiles and looks down at me."It suits you, a beautiful name for a beautiful woman. How are you feeling Megan?”He asks with a concerned look His his face. “I'm okay, ”I reply as I look down at my leg, all that remains is a large purple bruise.“What happened, I thought I would lose my leg, how is this even possible?” I ask confused. The handsome man looks at me, as he says, “Altundral
Chapter seven Planet Altundral.That's how I find myself on the beautiful planet named Altundral. King Halturian brings the colossal space ship into Dock with an expert hand; he turns to look at me, with a smile on his face as he asks.“Are you ready, Megan?”"I think so."I whisper quietly; still unsure if I've made the right decision, the butterflies in my stomach reminding me just how big a decision this is. King Halturian looks at me with understanding written across his handsome face, he gives my hand a light but reassuring squeeze as he says. “You'll be fine. I promise you, Megan. You can leave any time you like; you have my word.”I take his hand in mine, as soon as our fingers touch, I feel the electricity sending a shiver down my spine, straight to my core.The handsome King leads me to the door of the spaceship. The hatch rises, and the Altundral people are lining the walkway out of the ship and along the streets, I take a deep breath before I step outside King Halturian sm
