There is only one way to tell a dermagen from a human...unfortunately that means seducing it, putting Luna in more danger than she'd ever before faced. </H3> <DIV align="left">&nbsp;</DIV> <DIV align="center">Excerpt</DIV> <DIV align="left">&nbsp;</DIV> <H3 class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt" align="left"><FONT color="#00ccff">Earth, June 2147</FONT></H3> <H3 class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt" align="left"><FONT color="#00ccff">Time Police Headquarters</FONT></H3> <H3 class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt" align="left"><FONT color="#00ccff">New Warsaw, Europa</FONT></H3> <P class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt" align="left">&nbsp;</P> <H3 class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt" align="left"><o:p><FONT color="#00ccff"></FONT></O:P></H3> <H3 class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt" align="left"><FONT color="#00ccff"><SPAN style="mso-tab-count: 1">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </SPAN>&quot;You're a bit of a rebel, aren't you, Luna?&quot;</FONT></H3> <H3 class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt" align="left"><FONT color="#00ccff"><SPAN style="mso-tab-count: 1">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </SPAN>I didn't know what to say. I stood before him, as his was the only chair in the room. The others had been dismissed, absorbed into the flux beneath the shimmering floor. He could command a seat to form at will, but I didnt think he would... not from the expression on his cold, yet handsome face. </FONT></H3> <H3 class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-INDENT: 0.5in" align="left"><FONT color="#00ccff">As men went, Jondhru was just about the best-looking. Long almost-black hair, eyes nearly that dark, olive skin, and a body to die forthat was Jondhru. Jondhru, it was the only name anyone knew him by, was the top ranking official in the Time Police, an organization established in the early part of the twenty-second century. Jondhru was ruthless, cold, efficient and totally pro-agency. Thus I was terrified by the summons to his office, for Jondhru would as soon kill me as brief me.</FONT></H3> <H3 class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt" align="left"><FONT color="#00ccff"><SPAN style="mso-tab-count: 1">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </SPAN>&quot;I don't know what you're talking about, Sir.&quot;</FONT></H3> <H3 class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt" align="left"><FONT color="#00ccff"><SPAN style="mso-tab-count: 1">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </SPAN>I tried to guess how he might see meflame-red hair that almost reached the middle of my back, milk-white skin, long sensuous legs and the best breasts money could buy. I was topless but wore a pair of shorts made to look more like a heavy mist than any type of fabric. Outside, Id have probably worn a matching mist-camisole, though it wasnt necessary on base. Most men, I knew, found me attractive. Jondhru, on the other hand, never reacted at all. I might as well be negotiating with a computer. I'd have had a better chance.<SPAN style="mso-tab-count: 1">&nbsp; </SPAN></FONT></H3> <H3 class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt" align="left"><FONT color="#00ccff"><SPAN style="mso-tab-count: 1">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </SPAN>His eyes narrowed. &quot;Don't be coy, Luna.
