Chapter One

Rochan Shipping, Inc.

Elecia V, Electra Sector

Athena Rochan paced the luxurious antechamber, waiting for admittance to the inner sanctum--her father's office. The office she'd occupied for three years while the selfish bastard was off fighting yet another war. He hadn't been home a day before relegating her to the role of obedient daughter, hiding her behind the stone walls of their estate to languish in frustrated boredom.

Damn him! Why hadn't he just stayed away? Why did he have to come home and ruin her life? And what kind of life could she possibly hope for if her father decided to marry her off? A single woman enjoyed certain rights, if her parents allowed them, but married women were reduced to the dual role of hostess and sex slave. She'd tasted freedom during the time her father had been away, and losing that freedom was her greatest fear.

Her head jerked around at the sound of the intercom's chime.

"You may send her in now, Shomar."

"Yes, sir," her former assistant said, shooting her a smarmy smile. "The general will see you now." The word bitch went unspoken, but Athena could see it in his eyes.

"Have a care, Shomar," she warned, palms flat on the sparkling glass desktop. "I'll be in the pilot's seat again one day, and you'll wish you'd kept in my good graces." She didn't give him a chance to reply, but turned and shoved through the glass doors to confront her father.

"Father, what is the meaning of--"

"Watch your tone, woman," Ezel Rochan roared, his face mottled red with anger. Gritting his teeth, he turned to the man lounging in one of the visitor's chairs. "You see what I mean, Barik? No senseof propriety. No respect for her elders."

A heated flush rushed to her cheeks. "Don't you mean my betters, Father? Isn't that what this is all about? I ran your company more efficiently than you did, and now you're going to put me in my place because of it."

She watched as her father's friend slowly rose from the chair and walked toward her. It was all she could do to hold her tongue as the man circled around her, inspecting her person as though he had a right.

"You're right, General," the man drawled, raising a lock of her red-gold hair and brushing it across his cheek. "She's lovely, and very much in need of my services."

Athena was certain her eyes must have bugged out of her head. What was her father up to? She folded her arms across her chest and let her gaze roam over the man. No doubt about it, he was smoking hot in his form-fitting breeches and stretchy shirt. He had a soldier's body, sculpted and hard with slabs of muscle in all the right places. Shoulder length black hair framed a face that wasn't exactly beautiful but damn close to it, and his bottle green eyes reflected humor as her focus moved from his engorged cock to his frank gaze.

She quirked an eyebrow. "You're services?" She swiveled her gaze toward her father, gave him an innocent look. "Did you hire me a stud, Daddy?"

It was all she could do to keep from laughing. She might be running the company sooner than expected if the vein throbbing in her father's forehead meant anything.

"Sit," the general ordered, then took a deep, calming breath. "Your mother has always been too lax with you, Athena, letting you think you could choose your own path in life. She has done you a disservice and will answer to me for her transgressions. In the meantime, you've reached marriageable age, and there's not a man on all of Elecia who would have you."

She would have protested, but her father cut her off and gestured to the man called Barik, who grasped her arm and led her to a chair facing her father's desk.

"You're going to want to sit down for this, princess," Barik's deep voice taunted.

Athena frowned at her father. "What have you done? Who is this man?"

"His name is Barik Lugaran, and I've hired him to be your trainer."

Oh, Sabin's Comet! He couldn't be serious, could he? But one look at her father's face proved he was determined to bend her to his decision. She leaped to her feet. "I refuse to participate in this farce!"

Barik's hands landed heavy on her shoulders, forcing her back into the chair. "You will sit and listen to your father, woman, or pay the price for your disobedience."

Athena choked and stammered. "You dare touch me, you ... you dirty man whore!"

His lips twitched, but he shoved her chair right up the edge of her father's desk. "Please, General," Barik said smoothly. "Give her the contract to sign so we can be on our way."

Athena watched the papers slide across the desk and knew she was doomed. Her mouth moved but nothing came out.

"This contract binds you to Barik for a period of ninety days. You agree to adhere to his rules, obey his every order, and learn all you must in order to be a proper Elecian wife and mother. If, after the terms of the contract are fulfilled Barik has determined your behavior is fitting, you will accept my choice of a husband, marry, and eventually inherit my estate. Refuse, and I will disown you, and you'll never see your mother again."

Never see her mother again? She didn't want to believe her father would go so far, but one look at his face told her he was serious. Athena picked up the pen. Dazed, she signed the contract. "Why, father? Why would you do this to your own flesh and blood? Do you hate me so much?"

The old man's voice softened for a moment. "It is because I love you, I do this." Then he cleared his throat and squared his shoulders. "You may take enough time to go home and gather your belongings."

When Barik took her by the arm and pulled her out of the chair, it was all she could do not to snarl at him.

"There's nothing she needs I cannot provide for her," Barik told the general. "We'll see you in ninety days, sir."

* * * *

Barik kept his fingers wrapped around Athena's upper arm throughout the entire transport. He knew from experience that as soon as they materialized in his quarters, she'd take a swipe at him with those long, sharp fingernails. The spoiled rich ones always thought they could intimidate people they believed beneath them, but Barik had news for Athena Rochan; spoiled rich girls were his favorite kind. There was no challenge in training a meek, frightened mouse. No, give him a fiery woman like the general's daughter any day. He couldn't wait to have her bare-assed over his lap, heating those delectable cheeks before he slid his cock into her hot little pussy. Might as well start now, he reasoned, as they arrived in his rooms and she lunged at him with those claws.

"Uh-uh, little cat," he said, grabbing her wrists. She shrieked in frustration as he propelled her across the room and pressed her against the wall. "You signed a contract agreeing to obey my every command."

"You haven't made a command, Lugaran," she snarled, showing him her teeth.

He grinned. "Well, I'm making one now. Pull in those claws."

He watched her struggle against her urge to strike out before she nodded. He released her, and she dropped her arms to her sides. "Now, take off your clothes."

"I will not," she said, edging away from him.

"You will, or I'll do it for you, and I guarantee you won't like the result."

When she refused to comply with his order, he reached for her.

As he knew she would, she ducked under his outstretched arm and bolted across the room. He could almost feel her bare bottom arching against his hand as he slid his fingers inside her. He was sure she'd be wild in bed. There was too much fire in her for it to be any other way. He stalked her around the room.

"Do as I command, and I promise you'll be able to sit on your sweet little ass by the time evening meal is served. Deny me, and I'll blister you good."

She gasped. "You wouldn't dare."

He laughed softly. "Oh, but I would, Athena, and enjoy every minute of it. Now, remove your clothes and let down your hair."

    Tail signal history

    The real shadowclan was the first to devise a system of tail signals, which are now being past on to you apprentices.
    Generally the leader of a patrol is responsible for giving the signals. Warriors learn to keep the leaders tail in sight at all time and react once an order is given.
