The Betwixt Book One
‘You have such a boring life, Mini. Honestly, don't you ever look out the window and wish you were out there in the thick of the galaxy, rather than stuck in here with space bums and GAMs?’
I spread my mouth wide, in the kind of nervous smile I was used to giving Claudia – all teeth, no lips. ‘Oh, I don't know, it's okay here, I guess.’ I gestured at the packed diner before us. Humans and aliens shoveling down their food with differing degrees of coordination; it wasn't paradise, but it would make for a manageable hell.
Claudia, with her perfect human features, just groaned. Her brown eyes flickered, her mouth pulled tight, and her thick brown ponytail fell limp over a shoulder. ‘You are so boring for a halfy.’
Ah yes, a halfy.
I ignored Claudia and moved around her to a waiting customer. He was a big guy, a bull Crag if I wasn't mistaken. He towered over the two Galactic Army soldiers (GAMs for short) that sat to the side of him. And he sure looked hungry.
