The emperor's Ghosts started with three thousand young men willing and eager to serve. We were not sworn in as normal, we gave oaths of fealty to the emperor. We started basic training and that was when they gave us the drugs and other chemical treatments. That was when we began to die.
Three thousand started and twelve weeks later three hundred graduated, the rest died. We were stronger, faster and smarter. We began the advanced training; flight, weapons, martial arts, intel and reentry insertions and things you could not image. That was also when they gave us the self replicating nanites.
With reactions to the nanites and training accidents only thirty survived. At first we were considered failures since the only thirty out of three thousand survived. Because of our training we were sent to the combat front. The systems that were rebelling had resources and had managed to hold against the fleet.
Colonel Nathan was in command of us and he was a cruel, blood thirsty asshole. Our first mission we went in dark for two weeks and did a reentry insertions and freefall to under a thousand feet before opening anti grav shrouds. Our target was the command and staff meeting in the middle of a full division of assault soldiers.
We lost one man during reentry but took out the target before slipping away. Besides the command and staff we killed close to ten thousand men and wounded another twenty with a tac fusion warhead. I was promoted with several others and by the end of that first year ten more of us were dead.
I had been wounded a couple of times and awarded the Emperor's Cross before the Emperor ordered my promotion to lieutenant junior grade. Over the years we continued to loose men but Nathan, now a general refused to provide support or men to replace those lost. I was promoted all the way to Lieutenant Colonel after a last mission that left me the last man in the group.
I was planning a solo insertion when the rebels surrendered. After five years, sixty combat missions and the deaths of those I had come to think of as brothers, the war was over. While I received permission from the emperor to retire, fleet general Nathan returned to Central. He had been one of the few named to replace the fleet Sky Marshal, which meant he would command the whole fleet.
I took a job with the new sector governor as she worked out a new treaty with the rebel systems. I was with her in a closed meeting when a sniper killed Nathan entering the fleet headquarters. As much as I hated the man they could not point a finger my way. During the investigation of the assassination the secret of the Ghosts slipped out including many of the missions.
It was another six months before they discovered only I was left. I finished my check of the huge freighter before stopping on the bridge and nodding to the captain, "I found a couple of trackers and destroyed them so we are clean."
He grinned and turned to the pilot, "Mr Adams, move us away from the station."
The Rainbow's Heart went through the outer systems where a lot of pirates had sprang up. I watched as we headed towards the heliopause and turned to leave. I was the ship's security officer and only the captain knew who or what I was. Captain Edwards turned, "Johnny?"
I stopped and turned to look at him, "yeah?"
He looked at me, "a fast courier is leaving the station to catch us."
I waited and he smiled, "it is registering the emperor's personal seal."
I turned and walked to the scan station and moved the man to bring up the rear scan. I looked at the ship moving fast to catch us before turning, "have them use the starboard, stern airlock."
I left and went to my sparse quarters before changing and leaving. I was wearing Ghost undress which was a soft black. The pistol, fighting knife, sonic wrist stilettoes and the slim laser were all matte black with the Emperor's crest. I waited inside the airlock as the courier docked. Several minutes later the outer hatch opened and one of the emperor's guards stepped in.
He looked at me before turning to help a girl out of the boarding tube. She smiled as the guard accepted a trunk and set it down. I looked from her to him and he grinned before diving back into the tube and closing the hatch. I looked at the girl and she held out a data stick. I accepted it and looked out to see the boarding tube pulling away.
I reached for the trunk leash and led the way out of the airlock. I was not sure what was going on and led her through the huge ship and to my quarters. I closed the door behind her and left the trunk to cross to my small data terminal. I put the data stick in and a second later the holo of the emperor appeared.
He smiled, "I just finished reading the sector governors report Johnny. She said you helped a lot more than her assistants."
He glanced down and sighed before looking at me, "I know you have been following the news and all the wild stories about you and your unit. The girl is one of my nieces."
He snorted, "one of many. Anyway she convinced her father to open your file. My brother has always been a little soft where his daughters are concerned. Anyway she thinks you are lonely and insisted her father arrange a union between you and her."
The emperor grinned, "since you are my vassal he could not oblige her and she began working on me. Now I am working on you. If you accept, she will belong to you, her rights and her body, protect her and perhaps love her. Send me a note to let me know how you do."
The holo shut down and I pulled out the stick as it began to smoke. I dropped it in the recycler and turned to look at the girl and smiled slightly, "lonely?"
She smiled as she began undressing. She crossed to me and pulled me up and started pulling my clothes off and dropping weapons on the desk. I waited until she was done before backing her to my bed. I pushed her back and down on the bed before caressing her smooth thighs. I rubbed her pussy and then her clit when she shuddered.
I kept fingering her pussy and rubbing and caressing her clit. It was a few minutes before she was panting and shuddering. I smiled when she started jerking and spasming. I moved and slowly forced my cock into her before pulling her up. She wrapped her legs around me as I held her impaled.
She groaned as her pussy clenched and tightened around my cock. I rubbed her back and looked into her eyes as she began to shudder again. I turned and backed to the bed before sitting and then rolling. She was under me when I began to fuck her slowly with long thrusts. It took her two minutes before she was thrashing around and wailing.
I buried my cock and began to hump, press and jab. Taira bucked and screamed as her tight pussy rippled and squeezed my cock. I kissed her and smiled as she continued to jerk and convulse. It was another fifteen minutes before I slowly pushed into her and kissed her softly just as I spewed cum.
She jerked in surprise and lifted her hips as almost hot cum gushed through her cervix and flooded her womb. When I finished she sighed and I pulled out before rolling her onto her stomach. I moved over her and pushed back into her cummy pussy, "thank you Taira. I have never been with a woman."
She shuddered as her pussy clenched and pushed back, I fucked her six times before I stopped. I washed and dressed as she lay asleep on my bed before heading to the bridge. The captain was humming and reading a book as the second shift pilot sat at the pilot console. I stopped beside the chair and captain Edwards turned, "what did his nibs want?"
I smiled, "would you believe a niece felt sorry for me and thought I was lonely?"
He grinned, "what did she send you?"
I looked at the scan operator watching a news vid about Nathan, "he sent her to me. She begged and begged until she was collared and leashed."
His mouth fell open but the scan tech turned, "the newies are saying that if someone else had not killed Nathan that man left from the Ghost program would have. They should space him."
I looked at him calmly, "Nathan was a cold, back stabbing asshole. Someone should have killed the bastard years ago."
I glanced at the captain before turning to the hatch. The scan tech jumped up, "how dare you! General Nathan was a hero!"
I snorted as I looked at him, "tell the soldiers he sent to die while never leaving his safe ops room."
I took a step as he started for me, "you LIE!"
My pistol came out and up to point between his eyes, "I do not lie. The rat bastard never once went into combat. He did not care how many men died as long as he got what he wanted."
He stood frozen with his eyes wide and licked his lips. Captain Edwards stood and reached out to touch my arm, "he does not know Johnny."
I glanced at him, "teach the pup manners."
I holstered my weapon and left. I had my own gym and stripped to my pants before beginning exercises. Several crew members came in a little later but I ignored them as they stood along the wall. I stopped when Taira stepped in and glanced around. She smiled and stripped before bowing, "may I join you?"
I gestured and she moved onto the mat before starting her stretches. I watched carefully and had to smile at the almost elegant smoothness she displayed. A few minutes later she bowed and slid into a stance. The fight could have been over quickly but I worked with her. More crew came in until captain Edwards finally entered.
I stepped back as Taira panted, "stretch and cool off."
She grinned, "you are not even sweating."
I gestured and she nodded while I turned, "you told them?"
The captain nodded, "you pulled me and many others out of hell but they are family."
