Here is the wee teaser from Test book two I promised yesterday.
They had left the Spákona sitting in the interrogation room for the better part of an hour before entering. The man had merely sat there with the same irritating smirk of a smile on his face, at least until the door to his cell opened. Gina and Daniel came in while the guard escorting them then took up his position with the other guards outside.
Daniel sat down across from the Spákona while Gina took up a position in the corner. “What shall we talk about today?” Daniel began, with a smile on his face, “Nothing to suggest? Well, then let’s begin our chat where we left off, how does that sound?”
The Spákona remained silent with the smirk plastered across his face.
Daniel just returned his smile. “Last time we spoke you had some... unkind words about our allies, would you care to back that up with something concrete, like maybe, oh I don’t know, actual evidence?”
“No, not really. I think, actually, it’s about time for me to go.”
“No way are we letting you go back to your masters. Not in a million years,” Gina said hotly.
“And just how do you intend to stop me?” The Spákona’s smile was back.
“There’s this little thing called an inhibitor. You remember that, right?” Gina said sarcastically.
The Spákona’s smile nearly split his face at Gina’s confidence in her Roman gadget. “Gina, may I call you Gina?” He said with a smirk.
“No you may not,” Gina shot back.
“As I was saying, Gina, your Roman toy is interesting. It was a mild surprise to my employers in its ability to nullify some of a Spákona’s powers.” His face seemed to split wide open with his grin, “oops, did I let that cat out of the bag?”
With that the Spákona stood up and winked out of existence before winking back in, uncuffed, and unrestrained.
“Tsk, tsk, tsk. I told you once before, I was here for a reason and let you catch me.” He said his grin getting even wider, if that was possible.
“But credit must be given where credit is due. Those former thralls are creative. But, alas, as much as I have enjoyed our little chat I must be going. Toodles ladies and gents, be seein’ ya later.” The Spákona’s expression suddenly changed to horror. “No! It cannot be, not here, not now!”
Three humanoid figures in bronze colored powered armor suddenly appeared out of thin air, sporting odd looking rifles.
