Navigating the waters of romantic relationships, her job, and college was complicated enough for young Haley Meadows.
Life takes a turn for the infinitely more confusing, as well as bizarre, when she is kidnapped by the tantrum-prone, Prince Trelax, an arrogant space brat and heir to a galactic crime syndicate.
Forced to work for the criminal organization or face certain annihilation, her only friends seem to be the ship’s perpetually bickering computerized crew, Trelax’s cousin Needlax, and a mysterious blue biped dog named Chockson.
Trelax pushed open the door the moment the depressurization sequence completed and the three ran full force toward the waiting ship in the distance.
"S3, get the ship ready to leave the second we are on!"
Haley risked a glance behind her and saw the beam sweeping away the small piece of land. Trees and the top of the house they just exited vanished as the beam tore into it.
Instead of a more efficient back and forth motion across the ground, the beam focused and tore a hole through the ground directly behind them. "Trelax, it looks like it is trying to get us. We have to hurry."
"I'm on it. Bagoria, can you buy us some time?"
"Gimme a sec," Needlax responded.
"We don't have a sec," Haley pleaded.
Haley could almost feel the ground disintegrate behind them. They had moments before they would be melted into their base particles. Haley wondered what it would be like to be dead. Would she feel anything, or would it just happen?
Over the top of her, she felt a tingling sensation. It was too late, the beam reached them, and the ship remained out of reach.
