Life’s good for 18-year-old Ashkar Ravindra. School’s over, and he’s been accepted into the Fleet Academy. There’s time for one last trip up into the mountains in the brand new flitter his father gave him as a graduation present, before his real life, the one he’s been groomed for from the day he was born, begins in earnest.
Up in the mountains not everyone is pleased to see the privileged admiral’s son. Jealousy and ulterior motives turn the pleasant hunting trip into an ordeal. Lives are a stake. If Ashkar makes the wrong decision, he will be the first to die.
A short story about Ravindra before he joined the Fleet academy
About the author
I'm a retired IT professional (with a history degree) indulging in my love of writing stories. Most of my books are soft science fiction combining politics, a mystery, and a dollop of romance somewhere out in space. However, I've written two paranormal books about tigers and one historical fiction story based on a true, fascinating, and thoroughly nasty story about a psychopath and a ship wreck.
When I'm not slaving over a hot computer I mess about with my camera and enjoy the bird life in my garden.
