The chapter is over half-way finished. To give a small preview, Harlene and Aurra acknowledge their attraction to one another, but things take a very rough turn when Aurra realizes the role of power and control in a sexual relationship. Or more specifically, how much of each one must give up. We also find out more about Trent Carlyle. Who he is, what drives him, and why he is so determined to stay in the Alliance even though they’ve all but threatened to kill him. It’s about time I gave him some actual depth.
