Kadamba Vorhoor casually kicked his feet up onto his desk at the back of the

classroom and leaned back in his chair. The smug look on his face stemmed from

abundant confidence built through sports, academics, and a new successful

business. In two days, the school year would be over, leaving him only one more

year of required schooling before his advanced education started. The only thing

standing between him and a wildly successful future was the slim possibility that

one of his customers might die.


None of that mattered as he slowly rocked back and forth on the rear legs of

his chair. His mind drifted far away from the confines of the science classroom.


The droning of the teacher’s voice nothing more than background noise as his

imagination focused on the latest, most essential thing in his life – Jundana

Korhart.


She was stunning in every way – radiant dark skin, long and silky hair always

perfectly framing her high cheekbones and piercing dark eyes. Her sleek, athletic

build formed by running track and gymnastics. Every movement she made was

graceful, and somehow both delicate and forceful at the same time. Kadamba, who

usually went by the shortened version, Ka, wondered if there was ever a more

the beautiful creature on the entire planet of Koranth.


Only two hours before, Jundana bumped into Kadamba in the cafeteria. The

box containing her drink flipped through the air, managing to somehow land

perfectly upright on Kadamba’s tray. Unfazed, he simply smiled in her direction.


“Nice shot,” Kadamba said, trying to sound as charming as he could, “It seems

we must’ve been destined to run into each other like this today …”


“Sorry, Ka, I didn’t mean to bump into you. And seriously – you’re not thatsmooth,” she replied with a smile.


“No need to apologize,” Kadamba responded, handing her drink back. “You

ready for tomorrow’s test in Lormate’s class?”

“I’m about as ready as I’ll ever be. I think he just enjoys watching us suffer.”



“You got that right. No way he even begins to care about us. He just wants to

drag us through the material, unconcerned whether we understand it or not.”


Looking at her, Kadamba realized that the time was right. He’d always liked

Jordana but being so close to her was more intense than he’d expected. Trying to

act as casual as he could, he shrugged. “He’s just a jackass, and we’re outta herein a few days.”

“Yeah, that’s the truth,” she agreed.


“So, you want to chill on Schmarlo’s Landing sometime?” He hoped that he

hadn’t sounded too desperate. Every nerve in his body fought not to wince as a

the response began to form on her lips. He was sure that he was about to get rejected

and squashed by this beautiful creature.


“I’d like that. You wanna go today after school?”


“That’s perfect. I gotta little business to deal with first, but I’ll meet youthere.”


As Jundana walked away, Kadamba realized he wasn’t breathing. As the air

came rushing back into his lungs and he almost shouted out loud but instead spoke

softly, so that only he could hear, “I’m gonna rock your world, girl.”

“Mr. Vorhoor! Get your feet on the floor and walk them to the front of this

classroom, now!” Mr. Lormate barked at Kadamba, shaking him out of his

the pleasant reliving of the fateful encounter with Jundana.


Kadamba rolled his eyes back in his head, relishing the thought that he would

only have to deal with this jerk of a teacher for a couple more days. He slapped

his feet hard on the shiny surface of the floor, jolting the entire class to attention.

Standing up, he tilted his head, lifting his chin higher and rotating his neck. The

vertebrae in his neck popped loudly. The smirk on his face widened as he turned

his head the other way, sending out another series of cracks.


Mr. Lormate glared at Kadamba and swept his hand across the podium,

tapping his fingers in a rehearsed pattern. From the flat, institutional-gray wall

behind him, a three-dimensional image of a bargabuko, a toad-like creature that

covered most of the tropical belt of Koranth, began to appear. The nasty, little,

pus-dipping, foul-smelling creatures were the bane of every teenage science

students across the planet. At least, this one seemed to be a holographic, visual￾only representation of the little animal.

The image of the bargabuko began to grow in size and move outward from the

wall. Then the putrid smell hit the students full-on. This one was more than just

visual-only. A holographic lab table began to rise up from the floor next to the

podium, where Mr. Lormate sat on a stool, like an emperor gazing over his

subservient peasants. 

The bargabuko grew twenty times larger than a real one andlanded with a splat on the table. It bellowed out a croak that seemed like ahundred times louder than the creature’s true croak, followed by its annoying

belching sound and a spray of blue-green pus that landed on the students in the front row.
