100-Word Challenge, Day 223-225


CHAPTER TWENTY

Margaret sat in the back of the hover-limo and stared at the barren landscape as it moved past. A tickling sensation at the back of her mind made her think that once, long ago, the moon had been a fertile place filled with plants and animals, but she shook off the sensation. Luna had been a lifeless rock even before it had crashed into Terra and always would be. There was not enough organic material on the surface, or beneath it, to grow an egg crate herb garden, much less any sort of plant life capable of creating breathable air.

The man sitting across from Margaret cleared his throat and fidgeted in his seat. He was tall with a strong jaw and a fading hairline that his buzz cut could not hide. His soft brown eyes hid beneath a heavy brow that was overrun by a thick pair of black eyebrows. With a little work, imagination and a team of stylists Megan thought he might even be attractive, but it was of little consequence. He was male and therefore easy to manipulate. With the show of a little cleavage and the suggestion that she might show more, Megan knew that even the strongest willed man would hesitate for that crucial moment, and that was all she needed.

“What is it…”

“Thomas.”

“Yes, Thomas, what can I do for you?” She turned to look at him and crossed her legs. The hem of her skirt lifted a little higher up her leg and Thomas could not help but stare.

“Um, where are we going?” he asked.

“We are going to my home,” she said as she leaned back in her seat. Aldric’s cars were first class, and the limousine’s back seat was large enough to fit a dozen people, but it was just the two of them and Margaret used the space to her full advantage.
