Skipping ahead a bit in Onyx Sun, which is back from two beta readers and in revision.
Taliya has had a frustrating afternoon. She has had no good luck tracking the slaver that has her lover, Luzita; and the salesman at Vastyne’s didn’t seem too hopeful about her being able to get financing for the ship she had found.
All she wanted to do was break down and cry, but instead she swallowed hard and with shaking hands called her father.
“Taliya. I was wondering when you were going to call.”
“I’d heard you and your mother are no longer on speaking terms?”
“News travels fast.”
“Come for dinner.”
Taliya was beginning to feel faintly irritated by men telling her what to do and trying to feed her, but there was something in his voice that prompted her to agree. “All right.” She hesitated and added shyly, “It will be good to see you again.”
“Taliya…” He hesitated. “I’ll see you soon.”
