Marlee is realising just how little she knows about Tyris, and his world.
They walked down a corridor and into an open room with comfortable looking upholstered seats around the edge. The woman looked around with a frown at the half a dozen people who were sitting there, commenting, “It looks like Tyris is still in his medical exam. Are you okay to wait here for him?”
Marlee was just looking uncertainly around the room, when an elegant looking woman who was sitting near the door stood up and said, “I couldn’t help but overhear what you were saying. Are you waiting for Tyris Bekkert?”
Marlee hadn’t, until that moment, considered the fact that the beautiful dress Jaimma had made her would be out of style with those around her. But the tawny evenness of the close weave skirt and the light femininity of the blouse that the woman wore, tailored so perfectly to her shape, left her feeling unexpectedly dowdy, and suddenly at a loss for words.
“Yes, can I help you?” the nurse asked.
The woman smiled, and held out her hand. “I’m Milandra Harrington. Tyris’s wife.”
When Tyris and Marlee return to his home on Urslat, not everyone is pleased to see them, or to find out that Marlee’s people survived the meteor impact. They are, however, delighted to have a new source of anysogen. And they’ll do anything they can to gain control of it as soon as possible.
Marlee thought things would be simpler once they were on Urslat. After all, Tyris said no one would try to break up their relationship there. They hadn’t counted on Tyris’s wife, Milandra, who is determined not to let her husband go now he’s famous. But Tyris and Marlee have one very good reason for keeping their relationship a secret, and for that, they need Milandra to believe her marriage isn’t on the rocks.
In the meantime, there are people who find the idea of a planet where having children is encouraged very interesting indeed. Especially since some of the contraceptive chips have been malfunctioning…

Uh oh, this doesn’t bode well!
It never does. 🙂
At first read-through I mixed up Marlee and Milandra and didn’t get the point. Then I read the blurb, realized they were two different people, and thought, “Oh shit, that’s intense!” Now I can’t wait to see what will happen! =D
Easy to do when posting a snip in the middle of the action. 🙂 Yes, it is going to get intense, it’s always fun when it does.
