NEVER BE FORGOTTEN
SOME THINGS COULD never be forgotten—and Isla Mir-Brennan would
ensure they weren’t. She’d waited three long years for this moment, yet
now the time had come.
Finally. After weeks aboard Defiance, the Mir-Ferrin clan-lord’s
flagship, she was ready to strike.
With determination in her stride and rage smoldering in her belly, Isla
stalked from the landing bay. Fury had been her companion for a long while
now, warming her whenever thoughts of Cathal surfaced.
Anger was so much easier to deal with than grief—and so she embraced
As she left, Isla cast a glance toward the small shuttle that sat at the end
of the row of spaceships. One of the clan-lord’s personal fleet, it gleamed a
deep bronze in the harsh overhead lights. She had a keycard that gave her
access to it, and she’d just made sure that the shuttle was serviced, fueled,
and ready-to-go. No one had looked askance at her while she carried out the
checks, as she wore a fitted bronze jumpsuit with the Mir-Ferrin crescent
moon and twin crossed blades upon her breast.
For the past three months, Isla had worked as a technician upon the fleet
of Arrows—the clan-lord’s fighter planes—yet she had access to the shuttle
bays as well.
That shuttle was her passport off this battleship.
She’d planned it all, down to the last detail. The day, the time, the place
—and her means of escape. This wasn’t a suicide mission. She intended to
get off this battleship and return home—to her daughter.
An ache rose in Isla’s chest then, guilt overriding anger for once.
Reaching up, she rubbed at her breastbone.
I should have told her I was leaving.
Of course, there were many reasons why she hadn’t—and things had
been strained between them of late as it was. The truth was, Isla had
neglected Bea these last three years. Physically, she’d been there with her,
but emotionally, she hadn’t.
Even so, she’d never been apart from her daughter for this long. The
strain was starting to tug at her, like a long cord attached to her heart. The
pull reminded her of the life she had left behind.
I will explain everything when I get home, she promised herself. I will
make sure Bea understands.
Drawing in a deep breath, Isla squared her shoulders. She couldn’t think
of her daughter now.
Instead, she’d have her revenge—for them both.
Beyond the hangar, she joined the stream of uniformed personnel going
about their business, her boots clicking on the polished white floor. Now
she had to temporarily disengage the aft-shields, the weapons system, and
the tractor beam—and she’d be ready for the next step of her carefully
Isla wasn’t supposed to be at work right now. Her shift had ended a few
hours earlier. She should have been in her berth, sleeping. However, this
ship was so huge that no one would recognize her amongst the sea of
Leaving the landing bays behind, she took an elevator to the deck above,
where she slipped into one of the many control suites that dotted the
flagship. This one dealt with the shields and weaponry in this section of the
