My 40k Tale V2 - Ch04Rade City, Korin"I'm glad you accepted my offer, Ghenlin." Gracel said as she walked up the small ramp of the landing pad towards the Thunderhawk, and the man in the worn leather navy jacket who stood beside it."Don't thank me just yet, this bird is in a horrible way." he said without turning, rubbing the faintest of beards with his hand, "You'd think your folk could keep their equipment in proper order." he turned finally, his old brown eyes finding hers, "Servitor's are like guardsmen to your kind aren't they?""Hey." Kevi took a step forward up the ramp, Yril put a hand out to stop him, "Watch it old man.""Easy Kev, even I thought it was funny."

My 40k Tale v2 Ch02Rade City, Korin"So, tell me." she asked, her voice cold as the evening breeze, "Now.""What is there tell doll?" he responded with a shrug, "Was just following orders darlin'."The room was dark, only lit by the faint moonlit that pierced the curtains. They lay half tangled under the bedsheets as she played her free hand over his chest, her eyes tracing the path her finger tips made. He stared back at her, waiting for a response, his eyes betrayed the pain that still coursed through his body. Better them that did it then she, he was like property to her. Not that he minded."Was she better than me?" she looked at him, her eyes soft."I don't see how that.." she put her hand over his mouth."You stink of another." she said venomously."Well, I was working an angle, you know I was on the job." he pushed her hand away from his mouth, "C'mon doll, don't be like this.""You only do the job." she turned away as he propped himself up on his elbow,
