Science-fiction and passion mingle in this strikingly sensual short story of just over 5,500 words.
In a world besieged by war and facing annihilation by an inter-dimensional enemy, a sanctum exists where heroic soldiers can rest, indulge their pleasures, and where humanity's art and beauty is preserved. Lucia is many things to many people - courtesan, nurse, friend, and at times counsellor, but to Anthony... she will be his lover.
As war rages above, she and Anthony spend an unforgettable night together, and Lucia questions if it might just be worth it to love again.
Please note: This is a short story with strong steamy content and language.
