She'd entered the military complex alone knowing that he was there, she'd just picked him up on directional scan on the accel gate. Federation Navy Comet. Zenton Karvash.
The first man she'd ever loved.
Not an hour earlier he had sent her a message asking to meet her in a bar they used to frequent.
Surely he wouldn't harm her, not while she was alone. Not when he'd have to know all she wanted was to take the plex, not to fight him. Surely he knew.
"Get out of here."
"I'm just here for the plex."
She'd started the burn towards the 'button' only to have him close in on her. It confused her but she wasn't afraid. Not of Zenton, not the man who once told her he would never hurt her, no matter what.
The alarm sounded and she was being warp scrammed before she even realized that he was not going to let her near it.
"Fine. I'll leave", she told herself. She tried to align to the nearest stargate and warp but he hadn't let up.
Was he teasing her? Was this some kind of joke to him?
Cold reality slid down her spine as she watched chunks of armor peel off the sides of her slicer. Seconds later he was dipping into her hull and before the shock fully set in, there was a bright explosion.
She finally had the bearings to at least warp out before he podded her as well.
Oh god Zenton what have you done...Why?
She was numb when she finally docked up in Lantorn, having travelled there by instinct.
A message flashed across her neocomm from him, "Consider me KOS."
