A Warning from someone who knows...
“We all like to believe we are masters of our fate. However, usually it isn’t true. Somewhere, a person exists, sometimes completely unknown to you, whose slightest action impacts your life.”
Billionaire David Ross has created a sanctuary for an alien species that superficially resembles Earth’s black panther. This race is superior in both strength and longevity to humans. David’s plan is to seed a new world with the offspring of these aliens and selected humans. Contrary to the covenants of the project, he sends a special young woman named Jesse to the island against her will. Her arrival changes more than he planned.
The captain and a crewman carried Jesse off the boat on a stretcher.
A small, beautiful, black woman stared down into her face. “What’s wrong with her?”
The captain handed the woman a letter, which she read.
“Take her back on the boat!” the woman demanded. “She does not come by free will. Take her back before it is too late.”
“It’s already too late,” the captain said. “My orders are very clear on this point. No one leaves this island.”
“But she has seen absolutely nothing. She has no idea where you’ve taken her!”
“She knows it’s an island, less than a day from the mainland. That’s too much knowledge. She remains here, Carmella, and that’s all there is to it.”
“But she does not want to be here! David had no right to do this! It is hard enough for those who have willingly accepted.”
The captain snorted in impatience. “Please. It’s not as if she has to accept anything difficult. Hell, this place is a paradise! She’ll adapt.”
“And if she doesn’t?”
“Then put her back on the boat and I’ll get rid of her for you.”
“You mean kill her?” Carmella hissed.
“Yes. You know the rule, Carmella. No one leaves this island. Do you have any idea what would happen to your children if they became known to the world?”
Carmella stood in helpless rage for a moment. She then stroked Jesse’s cheek. “I’m sorry, Jesse, but it appears you are going to have to stay. It was wrong of David to send you against your will. But trust me when I say you are most wanted, and I hope you will not blame your new family for David’s unforgivable action.”
Jesse struggled with her emotions. She wanted to hate her new family, to hold them equally responsible for her abduction, but how could she when they were not a part of David’s scheme. She could see the woman, Carmella, was very upset over the matter.
