Chapter 4

"Apparently Zirk has managed to get himself in trouble." Ror sat down at the table his female and her friends were occupying.

"What did he do now?" Mary asked. She was eating a raw cut of meat with her fingers. Pregnancy now made her crave it.

"He always manages to get out of anything." Hannah shrugged. "Bet this won't be any different."

"Actually we have to go in and help him. He was sent to a max security prison and there was a riot or something. Thing is that the convicts are wreaking havoc as we speak."

"God, what is he doing then?"

"Hiding with one of them."

"Oh." Nadia clicked her tongue. "Maybe the guy won't kill him."

"It's a woman."

"A woman?" Mary frowned. "What kind of prison is it?"

"All female. It's filled with murderers, drug dealers, high stake thiefs. That sort of thing. The kind that wouldn't doubt to kill him." Ror explained.

Mary's eyes widened. "Is he going to make it?"

"Yes as soon as we rescue him."

"I feel sorry for the poor woman with him." Hannah shook her head. "Well, I'm off. I have to get back to work at the care center." She stood up.

"See you later." Nadia bade her farewell. "Now tell us more about Zirk." She told Ror.

"That's it."

"So he's in a prison filled with women. I don't think I find him in a dangerous situation, at least not for him. He's probably hypnotizing them as we speak."

"I don't think his power is that great. Over a hundred women is a lot for one zuko to manage."

"I think you should take Rix with you on this rescue mission." Mary licked her fingers. "He's been ignoring me and I really want him to be happy."

Nadia giggled. "I don't think a convict woman would be his ideal one."

"Why not? They could be reformed drug dealers."

"Or a reformed murderer." Ror smiled.

"Now you're just taunting me." Mary glared playfully at him. "I think it's worth a try."

"I was going to take him with me anyway. He is my right hand man. Will you be alright alone?" He got up and went to her.

She nodded. "I will. I'll wait for you right here."

He lowered and kissed her lightly on the lips. "I love you." He pulled away.

"I love you too. Bring Zirk alive, he did save you a couple of weeks ago."

"I know."

Nadia grinned at Mary as Ror left. "Can't believe that beast has gone to mush."

"Me neither." Mary sighed happily.

"Have you spoken to Selene?"

"No. I should call her to see how she's doing. Peter's funeral was a week ago and she was going to take over as head council of this region. I'll call her later."

"Send her my regards. I hope she's doing okay."

They all cared for Selene after they met her. Just because she was a rebel didn't mean that a friendship couldn't have formed.

Mary nodded. She would call her later.

 

Selene looked through the drawers. She had come into Peter's office with hesitation. She felt like she would have been invading his space.

Of course it had to be done since she had taken over his job for the moment.

She took out a framed picture. It was of Peter and Hannah. Hannah had a wistful look on her face as she stared up at him. He was smiling towards the camera.

Selene smiled. She remembered what he had said about not showing her how much he loved her when he had her. She would have liked to give it to Hannah but it wouldn't be appropiate.

She set it in the box with the rest of his things.

There was a knock on the door.

"Come in."

Catalina opened the door. "I'm sorry to bother you. I wanted to see if I could help you with something."

"I'm just getting his things out." Selene smiled at her.

Catalina was a beautiful girl from spanish decent. Her straight black hair hung over her shoulders down to the middle of her back. Her hazel eyes were full of expression, framed by long lashes.

Selene had tried to console her after telling her of Peter's death. Seemed she hadn't been too wrong about wanting to match them up.

The young woman had confessed to liking Peter more than their head council. She had a crush on him but kept a distance because he had been in love with Hannah.

She walked up to the desk and took the photograph out of the box. She traced her finger over his face.

"He was nice you know. I admired him in the short time I was here."

"He was good." Selene agreed. "You can keep the picture, cut out Hannah if you want." She teased.

Catalina giggled. "I don't think I can. They were a lovely couple. I will leave it at that." She set the picture down. "Maybe someday I will be able to move on."

"Of course you will." Selene sighed as she was done. "I think I need a coffee. Do you want one?"

"Yes. We can go to the coffee shop together."

"Let me grab my purse." Selene took it from where it hung at the back of her chair.

They walked out to the busy street. There were lakies mingling along with the humans. She had honestly started getting used to it even if she still didn't like them much.

There was still a certain alien that popped up in her head. What she couldn't shake off was the feeling that his words rang true.

She felt the fear clench her heart at the thought that she could fall in love with one of them.

"Stupid Zirk." She mumbled under her breath.

"What?" Catalina asked confused.

"Nothing, sorry. I was thinking of something else."

"What do you think about the aliens now working with the humans to reconstruct the city?"

"I think it's horrible."

Catalina arched a brow.

"It's horrible because they seem to be nice people or aliens. I think it's bad for the rebel business."

"I see what you mean. I myself am starting to think that there is no reason to be a rebel."

"Please don't leave." Selene pouted. "I can't stand any more rebels giving up. Ana left last week, said she needed a vacation and spend more time with her husband."

"I'm sorry about that. I won't leave now. I can't leave you with all the load. I want to help as much as I can but I don't think they are as bad as we originally thought."

They stepped inside the shop and got in line.

"Do you understand?"

Selene nodded. "I do. That's the sad part. I completely understand." Her phone rang in her purse. She took it out and smiled when she saw who was calling her.

"Who is it?" Catalina asked.

"A friend who's husband is an alien." She answered. "Mary, how you doing?"

"Great. How about you?"

"I'm fine. I'm getting a coffee with a friend."

"Good you need as much friendly stimulation as you can get. I don't like you being out there in the city all alone."

Selene smiled at her friend's genuine worry for her. "I'm not alone. Catalina is keeping me company most days."

"You guys should come over for dinner. How about today? We can eat here in the cafeteria where you can get a glimpse at the most eligible bachelors. Actually no, maybe not today. Most of the men went to go save Zirk, so...tomorrow. Let's do it tomorrow."

"Wait, back up. What happened to Zirk?" Selene frowned.

"That is a long story which to make it short, he got himself locked up in a max security prison that only has females. He's alive, for the moment."

"Oh my god."

"I know right. So dinner tomorrow?"

"I can't but I'll give you a rain check."

Mary groaned over the phone. "Fine but promise that you will come see us. I don't want you to miss out seeing me grow into a giant pumpkin."

Selene laughed. "I wouldn't miss that for the world. I've just been busy. I'll talk to you soon and I hope Zirk gets what he has coming without getting him killed."

Mary laughed. "I will tell him you said that when I see him."

"Do it. Bye."

"Bye."

She hung up.

"Mary sounds nice." Catalina told her.

"She is."

They reached the register and ordered.
