The Legend of Eve
by Toni Edge
Seventeen-year-old high school transfer student Eve Carson is the genetic cure-all for droolworthy Teluosian alien King, Adam Plain.
As Adam tries to convince Eve he wants her and not just her DNA, Eve discovers a hidden world of interstellar traders, human "genetic cows," and teen abductions by a government that will do anything to control the Teluosians on Earth.
When Eve's mom is kidnapped, loyalties are tested. Is Eve Adam's true love or his next "genetic cow?"
"We didn't know Royals were hanging out with the likes of her."
I didn't like the way this was going. I might not get out of it unscathed but I wasn't going to let Lily take the hit for me. I should have known that bullies are everywhere, even on the good side of town. I stepped forward until I was side by side Lily. "Listen, I'm new at the school. I don't want any problems. I'm on my way home. I can walk since I missed my bus."
The boys looked at me and laughed. "Did you hear her? ‘I can walk home.’" They mocked.
Lily tilted her head to one side and everyone heard her neck crack like someone had just set off some fireworks. When she was done rotating her neck she spoke. "My friend wants to go home. You should do the same."
One of the lead boys took a step closer. "Will you fight for her, Royal?"
I reached out to grab Lily but it wasn't in time to stop her response. "No, Hive Boy, I'd kill for her. She's my friend."
