“By rights, the Medusa and her crew is mine, Malcam. You know that,” Kai huffed, puffing up his chest.
Malcam sneered at Kai. “But you’re not here, and I’m in command. It’s not my fault the captain slipped and fell out of an airlock while you were gone.”
Nyx paused, hand hovering above her console. Did she hear Malcam right?
Kai turned to her.
Malcam’s cerulean gaze crossed from Kai to where Nyx was standing. “Did you not get a chance to tell her?”
“Malcam,” Kai warned.
Nyx sank next to the console. Her breath stuttered. Her father…was gone? He couldn’t be. He was the last of her blood. The last of her family. Now he was floating in the cold black of space. Dead.
“That’s the way the Medusa works, isn’t it? The strong rise to the top. The weak end up in the black. That’s the way it’s always been. And frankly, his decision to elevate you above me, and to give that princess of his rank after the debacle over the Star—that was weakness. You don’t show weakness on this ship.” Malcam ground his teeth. “Now, do you surrender? Or do we fight this one out? Please say the latter. I’m itching for a fight.” He snickered.
A lump formed in Nyx’s throat that she couldn’t swallow. Tears burned her eyes. Her father. He may not have been the good guy of her story, but there were quiet nights playing chess, bouncing red balls in his office when she was a child, and many late dinners together so the crew wouldn’t know. The tears shattered down her cheeks into tiny sobs.
Malcam had taken advantage of Kai having most of his loyal people on the Thanatos. She shuddered. The people left on the Medusa who supported Kai and her father would be executed. Malcam had enough supporters to overturn her father, who was, if not fair, at least seen as just according to traditions, except when it came to her.
Her heart threatened to beat from her chest. Nyx didn’t even get the chance to tell him about the Star or prove that she was smart enough and worthy to receive the ExO rank. She sucked her breath in fits. Her father was in the black. She stood up and faced the video screen. “Fils de pute. I’m going to kill you, Malcam.” The words bubbled from her gut and rumbled in her chest. If she ever came face-to-face with him again, she would end him.
