Deanna jerked into consciousness and froze. Where was she? Not on the ship, that much was certain. There was no background hum of engines—she didn’t realize until now how reassuring they’d been—only this sterile room heaven only knew where. White washed walls, bare floor, the bed she was on, and a table by the window. Unnaturally bright light streamed into the room, gave her the shivers. She grasped the white sheet to cover herself and padded over to that table.
Don’t even think about the reason why you’re naked.
She had to clamber on top of it, to be able to survey the strange landscape. Everything was cast in a strange glow and the tall buildings didn’t look familiar at all.
A strange buzz filled the room, and she drew back in horror as a figure slowly materialized on top of the table. Before she could even voice the scream lodged in her throat, he pulled her into a tight embrace.
“Hush. It’s me.”
The deep, gravelly voice she knew so well pulled her under his spell as effortlessly as the first time she’d heard it.
“Close your eyes. Hold on. We’ll be out of here soon.”
