Dangers of Hide-n-Hunt

Teaching Jennifer how to avoid being captured by an enemy was the purpose of the simple training session. But when was anything simple involving Jennifer Keller. When unforeseen forces come into play, it will take all Ronon has to get back what is rightfully his.


9. Chapter 9

"Well, the sex is apparently great from what I've heard." Shayd shrugged, "Though I wouldn't exactly know, human females scare even me!" Looking at Jennifer and offering her a sweet smile, "Present company excluded, of course!"

Drakari just closed his eyes and shook his head. The gods had played a cruel joke on his family, he was sure of it, to be cursed with this imprudent pup! The woman's laughter had him turning his attention towards her.

She was standing between Shayd and himself, mumbling "Demons? Really? Oh boy! You've really lost it now Keller!" then she started to laugh hysterically – looking from one to the other and back again. She must be dreaming – she had to be. Jennifer put one hand on her hip and with the other slapped herself on the forehead. That was it; she was dreaming this entire insane scenario! She was in Ronon's bed back in Atlantis and it was definitely time to wake up! This nightmare needed to end and now! Jennifer began pinching her arms repeating, "Wake up! Wake up!"

Shayd stepped in front of Jennifer and grabbed her hands to stop her hysterics, "Cease woman!" - concern etched on his handsome face. "This is a dream right? It's a dream. I'm dreaming." Jennifer looked beseechingly into his gentle brown eyes.

"No, dear one, you are not dreaming." Shayd spoke softly; bringing her hands together in front of her and holding them firm within his – which were surprisingly warm. As if talking to a child, he tried to explain. "We, Drakari and I, don't have that talent. We are not Dream Walkers, thank the gods! Humans have some fucked up shit in their dreams which would scare the piss out of me! ". He slowly let go of her hands and turned his attention to Drakari. "You obviously forgot to mention we're demons, hmmm?"

Drakari opened his mouth to reply, but a cell phone began ringing – the ring tone – Pour Some Sugar On Me.

Shayd smiled sheepishly and actually looked embarrassed. He reached into his jean pocket and withdrew a cell phone. He looked at the caller id; holding up one finger he stated, "Umm…Hold on a sec, I have to take this!"
Hitting the accept button he answered "Hello Sweetheart!" Turning his back to the two he walked a few steps away but Jennifer could still hear the one-sided conversation.
"What? Is that today, love?"
"Yes! Yes! I'll be there!"
"Of course, I promise."
"I'm on my way. I'm leaving right now!"
"See ya soon."

Jennifer was about to ask how in the hell did he get cell service here, but thought – Nope, not going there!

Stuffing the phone back into his pocket, Shayd turned back to see both staring at him – one with an astonished look on her face; the other with a murderous one.

"What? It was the DCC committee calling. I forgot that there was a meeting today!"

Knowing she should not ask, however, not being able to resist, "DCC?"

"Yes!" he said excitedly. "The Demonic Collective Convention! They are holding it in New Orleans this century! Just love New Orleans! It is the best of the five pinnacles on earth! The DCC can only be held at one of the sacred pinnacles and no offense but Stonehenge is so out dated!", he said rolling his eyes.

"Shayd!" Drakari growled.

He grinned wickedly and looking at Jennifer said, "Too bad there isn't one in Hawaii or the Fiji Islands!" Shayd just ignored his cousin's warning tone. "Oh man all those" he held up both hands to his chest imitating that he had breasts.

"Shayd!" Drakari yelled.

"I was going to say lovely bunch of coconuts!" he smiled, winking at Jennifer. She was starting to like Shayd. Oh God did she just think that?! Like a demon?

He continued to explain. "The DCC is where demons of all races do some fighting, a little killing and a lot of…impregnating females?!" Shayd grinned dreamily and sighed.

Drakari slapped him on the back of his head.

"Ouch! Dammit, Drake!" Shayd rubbed the back of his head and gave his cousin a - I'm gonna get you later for that! - look.

Out of all that explanation about the DCC she could only ask "You've been to Earth?" Just imagining that creatures such as these roamed her home world made her shiver.

"Oh many times – fabulous little speck of dust in the Milky Way!"

"Enough Shayd! Leave before I literally rip your heart out!", Drakari threatened.

Shayd glared at his cousin then leaned in closer to Jennifer and whispered, "He loves me!"

Grabbing tightly to Shayd's arm, Jennifer pleaded "Don't go! Don't leave me here alone with him. Please!"

"I am not going to hurt you woman." Drakari did not miss the gesture of Jennifer reaching up to her neck with one hand. "You have my word" he finished.

"As I was about to say before lover boy here," Drakari said between gritted teeth motioning to Shayd, "rudely interrupted us – I wanted to know how you came by this". Looking at Jennifer, he held up the binding necklace. "I had given it to a young woman a mere week ago."

Shayd whistled, "Oohhh…..Your mother is going to kill you!"

"Shayd!" Drakari shouted and stepped towards him.

"Sorry! Sorry!" he pretended to zip his mouth shut.

Drakari looked at him, "You know I have that power!"

Shayd crossed his arms over his chest and the two just glared at each other. One daring the other to speak and the other daring the other to try and literally zip his mouth shut!

Jennifer's timid voice had both looking at her, "A…. a village elder gave it to….to me for services ren….rendered."
Shayd raised his brows at her.
Jennifer rolled her eyes. "Medical! Medical Services rendered!" she answered the unspoken obscene question.

He looked disappointed.

"Don't you have someplace to be, pup?"

"Oh shit! Yes! I'm gonna be late!" Shayd turned to Jennifer, taking her hand he softly kissed it, "It was a pleasure meeting you dear one. Hopefully the next time we meet, it will be under more pleasing circumstances" then he winked at her.

Turning towards his cousin, he asked "What do I tell King Keston? You know about his daughter?"

"Tell him it is being taken care of as usual!"

"Gottcha!" Making a mental note of what to tell the king – "Drake has no fucking clue as to where your daughter is, Your Majesty!"

Laughing out loud at his own thoughts, Shayd turned and walked away into thin air!

Now Jennifer was all alone with the one who looked like a black haired Wraith with red eyes standing staring at her.

She prayed silently, "Ronon please hurry! I'm scared!"
