SCUDDAR

Chapter 17.

 

Trevor awoke lying in a cot in a large circular room. His first reaction was to feel if Gina was by his side. When he realised the cot was only big enough for one, he looked around. There were eight cots in the room. Adrian and Charles were sitting on the edges of their cots talking in whispers. Stephanie and Angela were also awake but just looking around examining their surroundings. Gina lay in the cot beside Trevor’s. She was just stirring. Michelle and Joseph were still asleep.

Trevor jumped out of his cot and went to Gina. "Are you all right?" he asked. Concern written over his face. He knew there was a possibility she would be frightened at her experience.

Gina sat up. "Yes, I’m okay," she replied. "Where are we?"

"We are on Neum," replied Trevor. "This is the planet I told you about."

Gina then saw the other six humans on their cots. Adrian and Charles, hearing their voices had turned to look at them. Stephanie and Angela sat up.

"This is unbelievable," exclaimed Angela. "I didn’t feel a thing. I just went to sleep and here I am."

Adrian and Joseph began walking toward them. As he passed a window, Adrian stopped and looked out. "Hey, look at this!" he said, "Mushroom buildings with spires! We’re really here!"

Meehun and Neegon came into the room followed by several Neumites. Trevor looked to see if Losin was with them but was disappointed.

"Welcome back, Trevor," said Meehun. "Welcome to Neum all of you. We will feast tonight in your honour."

"A feast sounds good!" Angela cried. "I understand the food is real and not synthetic."

Trevor helped Gina to her feet and introduced her to Meehun and Neegon. Meehun reached to touch her chin but she flinched back.

"It’s all right, Gina. He just wants to say, ‘Hi’ the Neumite way."

"And in your way," added Meehun. He reached out and shook her hand then touched her chin and went through the "You are my friend…" ritual.

"Did someone mention food?" Joseph got up from his cot and shook Michelle. "Wake up, Michelle or you’ll miss supper."

"I’m awake," she replied. "Just making sure I have all my assets with me." She sat up with a grin and did a shimmy.

"They’re all there, all right," said Adrian with a grin.

 

The dining room had been set with tables placed in a position of honour for the eight humans and in view of all the diners. Meehun sat in the middle four humans on each side of him. He stood up and introduced them one by one to the listening crowd of Neumites.

Trevor searched the faces of the three hundred plus aliens for Losin and Baheen but could not see either of them. He couldn’t explain to himself why he felt disappointed. He had Gina with him and that was what he wanted most of all. He put it down to the fact Losin and Baheen carried his children and he was naturally interested in their well-being. He became aware that Meehun was speaking.

"… and we are concerned that there may be some even more advanced," he said. "At this stage we are not sure how long it will be before it begins to start looking for intelligent life-forms."

"Is there any indication of their age?" asked Trevor. He guessed Meehun was speaking about the Scuddar.

"We are trying to determine that from the Scuddar we are studying. We are learning more all the time," replied Meehun. "But it is difficult as it is so badly wounded."

"How advanced is the one you have found?"

"The most advanced is already at the weaning stage and feeding on animal life and has its ‘servants’ in the form of yellow threads just as you have already seen but they are not intelligent."

"They’re not invisible?" asked Trevor. "They were before."

"We believe they are invisible to the animals. Since you made them visible to us we are able to see them." Meehun looked up and down the table at the eight humans. "You must be tired. We will show you your new homes. Trevor, you will have the home you chose before?"

"Why not? I’ve got used to it and there’s room for Gina, too." He turned to Gina and added, "You will be staying with me, won’t you?"

Gina blushed and looked to see if Michelle was watching but she wasn’t. "Yes, of course." She replied.

Seven Neumites, four males and three females, came up to the table. "We will take you to your homes," one male said, touching his forehead. "Please follow us."

The humans followed the Neumites to the spire. Angela was the first to go beneath the spire with a female Neumite. The rest watched as the green light bathed them both for a moment then they disappeared.

"I really must find out how that works," said Michelle. Her extensive knowledge of physics did not extend to this level and the scientist in her was intrigued. "It’s fantastic."

"The green light analyses and tunes your molecules," replied one of the Neumites. "Once you have been transported all the spires are tuned to them and you can use any one of them."

"I tried but I can’t understand how to use the control panel," said Trevor.

"You will be taught that," said the Neumite.

"This is where I was living when I was here," Trevor told Gina, his hand making a sweep of the room like an announcer introducing a star performer to an audience.

Gina scanned the room briefly then went to the window and peered out.

"Not exactly a Superclass hotel," Gina replied, unimpressed. Trevor went up to her and put his arms around her waist and kissed her neck.

"No, but the bed is really something," Trevor replied. "The mattress molds itself around you."

Gina unwrapped Trevor’s arms and turned away from the window.

"I need a shower. Where is the bathroom?" She asked.

"There isn’t any shower," said Trevor. "They have communal bathing facilities here."

Gina spun round to face him. "What?" she exclaimed, looking at him as if she hadn’t heard correctly. "You mean we all share the same shower?"

"The Neumites all share the same bathing pool. It’s nothing really," replied Trevor. "No one even notices you."

"I am NOT bathing with a lot of alien women!" Gina said emphatically.

Trevor groaned inwardly. Why is she being so awkward? He thought. Is she still mad with Michelle and ultimately him? He knew that Michelle was just using her feminine instincts to persuade Gina to come to Neum. The wink she had given him was not a come-on. It was to let him know she had helped him to get Gina to make up her mind. Maybe it wasn’t the best way, but it worked.

"Actually, it is mixed bathing. Male and female."

"You have got to be joking, Trevor!" Gina said meaningfully. "You’d better be joking!"

Trevor wished he was joking. He shook his head. "Remember that old saying, ‘When on Mars, do as Mars does.’? That applies here, too."

Gina crossed her arms and paced up and down as she thought.

"Is that why you took so long in coming back?" she asked. "I bet you enjoyed every minute of it."

"Gina, ask anyone how badly I wanted to get back to you," said Trevor in defense. "Ask Meehun, Neegon or anyone."

"You know I wouldn’t do that, Trevor."

"Darling, let’s go to bed. I have longed to make love to you ever since I was first brought here." He took her hand and led her to the bedroom. Gina, feigning reluctance, followed him.

 

 

Chapter 18

Gina lay staring at the ceiling deep in thought. The lovemaking she and Trevor had made the evening before had been the most intimate they had ever shared. The abstinence they had been forced to endure had made it all the more beautiful. Trevor had explored her body, touched, kissed and caressed every intimate part of her. His tongue had probed, licked and titillated her in such a way she had never experienced previously. She had no doubt that she loved him and that he loved her. So why did she feel something was not right? Something was holding her back from being able to give herself completely to him, mind, body and soul. Something was nagging at the back of her mind that she couldn’t put her finger on and identify.

Trevor, still fast asleep beside her, grunted and stirred but did not awaken. Gina looked at him. He was handsome, strong and intelligent. In all the time they had been together, he had shown his love and devotion and she knew she had perhaps exploited that more than she should have done. She tried to think of a time when he had taken advantage of her love for him. None came to mind. The only time she thought he had was when he told her about this planet they were now on. She had disbelieved him then and now, he had proved he was speaking the truth. She felt guilty that she had distrusted him. Still, something made her feel uneasy.
