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?"
He turned to me and grabbed me by my shoulders. "Eve, I know you don't understand. I can't explain it to you. But I want you to stay away from Stavrett."
There was so much emotion in his face. The concern turned his normally hard features into something I use to dream about. I reached out and placed my hand on his cheek.
"Bryan, if you know something, I'll listen."
"Eve, listen to me now."
"Then tell me something."
"I told you."
I dropped my hand, pushed away, and walked around him.
"I'm done with that." I said over my shoulder.
"There’s no time for you to act like some kid."
"Then don't waste your time. You have a friend to attend to and I'll attend to mine."
He swore and the staircase door opened again. It was the skinny kid.
I didn't look behind me as I headed for the apartment door. I just moved forward. That's what momma taught me to do with things I couldn't change. Just keep it moving.
