The Serpents and the Skulls, Chapter 4.2

I ought to curse the rest of the council for excluding me from the war effort. To be ignored like this- humiliant For days, I’d been surfaceside on Lasswitz Silo, participating in the daily High Council K-cast but little else other than that. A week prior, I’d received an order from Victor Laius that the majority of Mukusibii’s system fleet was to be pressed into service to help him...

The Serpents and the Skulls, Chapter 4.1

My mistress’s hips bucked and writhed, her thighs wrapping around my head as her fingernails clawed through my hair. She let a single, long cry that sounded like pain as much as pleasure and relaxed before me, her body melting into the bed, breathing heavily. Tiny moans accompanied each ragged exhale. I took a moment to rest my head on her belly, my face bobbing up and down as Marra caught...

“The attack,” Laius was saying, “will commence in waves. The main strike force will enter the system in one coordinated jump and proceed to the planetary surface, establishing a perimeter and deploying the teams into the sanctuary. The rest of the fleet will be kept on standby, a single jump away and committed as needed. As soon as the facility is secured, the occupation will proceed and...

The Serpents and the Skulls, Chapter 3.3

“Listen, Deggie- you wanna keep knocking over shipments of food cartridges, or do you want to move up to the big time?” Snuffy McWalters. The old scoundrel with the filthy whiskers and glass eye, hunched over a steel mug of tavern-distilled Pegasi rotgut. We were in a private booth in my father’s nightclub, loud music throbbing in the background. It didn’t surprise me that old Snuffy knew...

The Serpents and the Skulls, Chapter 3.2

The things I do for these people. I am standing in the observation deck of the main surgery suite at Clair Dock. Beside me are the other members of the High Council, minus Degginal. The poor old man was still confined to his bed. Not that that was a bad thing. The sight of what Marrakech had planned would probably have been enough to finish him off, anyway. Despite the potential importance...

The Serpents and the Skulls, Chapter 3.1

“Damnit, Marra- you should have tried to take survivors.” My mistress was sipping a glass of wine from the bridge of the Bucephalus, the first Core Dynamics Corvette that had ever been acquired by Black Omega. It had been, in Degginal’s view, symbolic of greater things to come for the firm- and even years later, still held sentimental value for him. Next to her was Victor Laius, the commander...

“Well?” “Seventeen bounties awarded across Black Omega space. Of those, eight were found to be fraudulent.” Not enough. Not by a blasted sight. And what’s this about fraud? I narrow my eyes. “And how exactly does one cash in a fraudulent bounty?” Apollonia’s eyes widen in imagination. “Very easily, ma cheri. Kidnap a man or woman and force a cheap snake tattoo onto their arms....

The Serpents and the Skulls, Chapter 2.3

The trouble with chasing a snake into its den is that you’re never quite sure who is stalking who. I and the entire Black Omega High Council are in the boardroom, along with the bosses, merc captains, and personal assistants to the council members. Combined with the most trusted enforcers standing guard at the entryway, it’s a crowded situation. Still, no one complains. Among the council,...

The Serpents and the Skulls, Chapter 2.2

It’s been a long time since I’ve worn a flightsuit. I’m not a pilot. I have no knowledge of ships, other than that they fly in space. And why would I? My trade is flesh and entertainment. Even when I rose through the ranks under Jaz Adissa, my strategy in politics was much the same as the one from business: sculpt a reality that allows the client to believe whatever they desire to believe-...

M. Lehman /
The Serpents and the Skulls, Chapter 2.1

This time, I did not sleep in my mistress’s bed. In fact, I did not sleep at all. Marra had been relaxing in her suite with me when the call from Degginal came in. I could tell that she was both irritated and excited to embark on some field work. The reason for the call itself was mystifying- the Gold Crew’s consular ship had sent out a distress call, and it was a matter of state that...
