Aleia sat huddled in the back of the speeder, nursing her daughter for the last time. Her master was taking her to the ones who would be her daughter's new owners. She knew this day would come from the moment she found she was pregnant. That night with the roguish smuggler Thar had been one she'd always remember. He was so passionate and gentle. He made her feel, for one night, like she wasn't a slave. Such encounters were rare. Most men she was paid to entertain treated her more like a toy than a woman, but this too she had come to accept.
