The Girls From Alcyone II: Vengeance
For those not familiar with TGfA, here's the premise in a nutshell: Taken from her home as a young girl, Sigrid Novak is one of a select and highly trained group of genetically (and bionically) enhanced girls. Both hunted and coveted (as a military asset and scientific curiosity), Sigrid and her friends have fled the Federation to make a new life for themselves on a secret and distant planet (a secret that, perhaps, won't stay secret for long).
This Week: Continuing last week's snip, still at the pub, some navy-boys have just bought the girls a round of drinks when Christian spies another admirer.
"Looks like they're not the only ones who want to buy you girls a drink," Christian said. "Check it out—very hot package at four o'clock."
Sigrid had to crane her neck, frustrated as she tried to peek around the patrons standing in her way. And then she saw her—the woman from the promenade. The woman in green.
She was seated at a table, and alone. She had changed her clothes, but she was still dressed in green; tailored green jacket, matching skirt with warm woolen leggings, leather boots—dyed green, of course. Only her lips were of a different color, painted a brilliant, deep crimson. Her shoulder-length brown hair framed a pair of deep-set emerald eyes—eyes that were fixed directly on Sigrid. The look was penetrating, brazen.
The woman raised her glass, bowed her head.
"Now, I saw that!" Christian declared.
Apparently Suko had too. She half-rose from her seat in the booth. "Hey…!"
