Will o' the Wisp: P.L. Parker: Science Fiction: Pages: 60
Stalked across the vast reaches of the universe, Tannis, the last fecund female of the clan Light Bringers, takes refuge on Earth, veiling herself within the dying form of a human female. Her energy forces are flagging and to rejuvenate, she must seek the healing properties of the sun�s rays, but by doing so, she risks discovery by the hunter. Time is short and Kadin�the most feared assassin of all�draws near!
�Hold her down while I sedate her.�
�No!� Tannis screamed out. �If I sleep, he�ll find me!�
�No one is going to hurt you,� the woman soothed. �We just want you to calm down.�
�You don�t understand! I can�t sleep,� she cried. �If I do, he�ll destroy me.�
�No one�s going to destroy you,� Laura said as she reattached the tubes. �We won�t let them,� she glanced at the other two. �Will we?� They shook their heads. �Not on our watch,� one replied.
�But�but you won�t even know he�s here until it�s too late.�
A hand squeezed her shoulder. �You�re in ICU. No one gets in here without us knowing about it.�
�You can�t know�,� she moaned as more drugs entered the body�s system. �He won�t rest until I�m eliminated.�
