Description: Soundwave had always assumed that she was an only child, but she was wrong. Her two sisters have found out about her existence and they are searching the galaxy to find her. Mirage has spent her entire life hiding behind her power to create illusions. Shielding both her and her sister from the world and her heart from pain. But when their search for Soundwave casts them as unwilling participants in a mating ritual for a planet full of manticores, illusions will do them little good. Now, they aren't searching for a lost sister, they're fighting for their freedom. Rynund chose his mate from the scantily-clad space-order mates not for her beauty but for her tight-lipped defiance. He was sure she would lead him on a merry chase. What he didn't expect was for her to steal a spaceship and lead him off-world. The hunt is on. Too bad for her, hunting is what a manticore does best!

"Just sign the damn thing."
If Mischief didn't sign the damn contract in the next five minutes they would miss the boat and be sleeping outside for the second night in a row. Mirage clicked her tongue against the top of her mouth. Five years of searching and they were one ride away. One fucking spaceship ride. And Mischief wanted to start analyzing paperwork?
"This says that if chosen we agree that we'll enter into lifelong unions." Her forehead crinkled.
"I know. It doesn't matter. We'll just walk out of there like we do everywhere else." Mirage looked to her left. The women were already lining up to turn in their paperwork. "Look. Either we do this or we lose the best lead we've got." Not to mention this list of Soundwave's upcoming jobs had cost them damn near everything they owned. If they didn't catch this break, there was no telling when they would get more information on their lost sister's whereabouts.
Mischief looked up and shook her head. "Just remember when this blows up in our faces that I said this is a bad idea." She looked down at the virtu-paper and put her fingerprint in the designated area. It took a second for the paper to find her in the system, but a few seconds later her adult federation identity photo and name popped up in the corner of the paper.
"Good. Now come on before they decide they're full."
The sisters walked to the end of the line and stared straight ahead. Mirage tried not to look anyone in the eye. The last thing she wanted to do was have people get a good look at either of them.
She watched Mischief feed her paper into the small slit. The screen lit up green. When it was her turn, Mirage walked up to the blue screen. She inhaled deeply and pushed down the nervous energy churning her stomach. Her hands shook as she fed the paper into the tiny slot. It took seven long seconds for the screen to blip green. Their contracts had been accepted. Both sisters rode the escalator up to The Bridal Boat entryway. There was no looking back now.
