“You will cease this nonsense immediately!” Lord Varrik Varaant
roared. “This wedding has been arranged for years, and by the
gods, you will obey me.”
Lynara sighed and resisted the urge to rub between her eyebrows. She had
a headache forming, as she always did when she couldn’t avoid her father’s
calls. “I can’t. You know I can’t.”
“You might be a princess, but I am still your father, and you will do as
you are told!” Her father clenched his jaw in fury.
This was it, the heart of their endless debate. Because while her father
was plain old Lord Varaant, she was Lady Varaant, a princess of the empire
thanks to her late mother, and that fact was a constant thorn in her father’s
side. She hadn’t asked for any of it, but that didn’t seem to matter to him.
“I might be a princess,” she threw back. “But I am also a captain in His
Imperial Majesty’s Navy, and just like any other officer, I have to follow
Silence fell on the other end of the link. Her father’s jaw clicked closed,

command. Like your mother’s…”
Lynara shrugged. Her mother had commanded a capital destroyer, one of
the most powerful ships in the Imperial Navy. But she had been a general
with a whole, long-hard war’s experience under her belt.
Which Lynara was most definitely not.
The only ships currently waiting for captains were all the higher prestige
classes. There were none that she, a newly promoted captain fresh out of the
second officer’s chair, would ever be assigned command of. But… a girl
“We’ll have to see how it shakes out.”
“Let me know,” her father ordered. “If you do not get command of a
decent ship, you will return home and marry as ordered.”
“I’m sor— hat was th—at?” Lynara stuttered as she kicked the table the
comm-link sat on, making the screen fritz. Her father’s face was decorated in
lines of static as he scowled.
“Lynara! Don’t you dar—”

over her quarters.
