Chapter Twenty-one


Setcha (Knome Air Space)

Anya rose in response to the chime at her door.  She triggered the open switch.

“My Lady, we are making our approach, you wanted to be alerted.

“Thank you, Yutiro. How long before we land?

“Within the hour,” Yutiro replied as he stepped through the doorway.  “Will you be requiring anything?”

“No, thank you.”  Anya approached Yutiro, touching his arm.  “Yutiro, you have been a good friend to me, far and above your duty.  I appreciate everything you have done for me.”

“That’s kind of you to say, my lady.  I, I am very fond of you, it really has been my pleasure serving you.”

“And I have not always been on my best behavior, but you have always been kind, accommodating, I’m sorry for that.”

An alert from inside the bridge captured their attention.

“Would you like to make our approach from the bridge?” Yutiro asked.

“Yes, I will there in a minute.”

“Very well,” Yutiro replied as turned and walked towards the bridge.

Anya was now anxious to get home, she needed to know why her life had been so drastically disrupted. Her questions were so close to being answered and she had a sense of dread in what those answers would reveal.

Anya picked up her tunic and left her room.  She walked through the hall and onto the ships bridge.  Her pilot and co-pilot were busy negotiating with Ground Control.  Her guards were seated as was Yutiro.

Yutiro, turned as Anya entered the bridge and gestured for her to take the last available seat on the bridge.

Anya sat down and engaged her harness.  She braced herself as the ship entered Knomen atmosphere. 

Why had she’d been allowed to return to Akadia, only be recalled within a month.  Allowed to teach at Hamlin and then to have her employment revoked.  So many questions cluttered her mind and now she would have them answered.

Destined for the Walvali Cavern Gate, the Setcha entered Knome’s stratosphere, traversing over the barren Dunes of Upai. Soon she would have answers.
