I was not normal, that is what everyone kept telling me since the day I was born. I was white with a red star on my chest. It would have been better if I had been any other color. Since I was old enough to walk I have been told I would never be a hunter or a warrior. My clan was a mountain clan and from the time I could walk I began training to prove them wrong.
I did not only learn the Art but several of the human martial fighting arts. I was running and climbing all the time and learned how to stalk. I learned to shoot a rifle or pistol or use a knife. I used an AI and spent hours in sims learning tactics. Slowly time past and I grew strong and faster and was an extremely good shot.
What I did not do was change my color. I was still treated as a freak that could not hunt or fight. I had turned sixteen and even my clan had not found a match for me. I did not mind since I intended to win the Hunt and win a mate and prove myself. My clan would pay for the hunter that brought back the largest Kratcal.
I striped out of the long tan kilt and the light tan shirt. I wore a thick belt with a long knife sheath on my left thigh and a short double edge dagger on my right. When I joined the line of males they went silent and everyone looked at me. I ignored them as I looked towards the forest and waited for the signal to hunt.
I had searched using sats and found a Kratcal that was very large. Of course it was not close and there were others between here and where I had seen it. I finally looked at the clan leader and he growled before gesturing, "so be it."
Finally the signal was given and we began to run, I was quick to take the lead. We hit the forest and many slowed but not me. I had run the forest many times and flowed over bushes or obstacles. Time slipped away as the world around me became the forest. I slowed a few times as I looked at the area I was in.
I drank water from a stream at mid day and then continued. I knew I passed at least two Kratcal but since I did not slow they would have to track me. I was deep in the mountains when I reached the area I wanted. I slowed and began my hunt, I stayed in the brush and thick bushes. It was late afternoon when I found the signs.
I glanced up at the silent drone following me before I started to stalk. Finally I saw the Kratcal and it was huge. I was behind a tree and bush but watched as it shifted and then stood on its rear legs. My heart was pounding as I slipped around the tree and my right hand pulled the dagger.
I was only a couple of paces away when it turned and saw me. It roared as I slipped closer and crouched. My left hand swept up debris and the Kratcal swiped with both left paws. I leaped and my left hand snaked behind and up to the upper shoulder to grab and pull. My body swung as the beast spun and my right hand struck.
The dagger went through the spine at the base of the head and it just collapsed. I left the dagger as we fell and rolled to my feet as I pulled the long knife. The Kratcal was thrashing and spasming but it was dead or close to it. I squatted and waited until it became still and then signaled to the drone and it used a grav to lift and weigh it.
When it was done I skinned it and removed the claws before I started the long walk home. I carried the heavy pelt on my shoulders and it was the next morning before I returned to the clan starting point. Most of the others were back as I set the pelt down and looked at the weight listed beside my name.
The clan leader growled, "Adjar will go to the Hunt."
I stiffened, "my Kratcal was fifty kilos more than his and twenty more than the record. It is my right to go."
He ignored the others as my father hissed a warning to me, "you are not a warrior."
I growled as I moved towards the clan leader and the long knife came out and up to his throat, "you are a coward and thief!"
He shifted and I moved with him and then shoved him, "the clan does not stand at my back so now I will never stand at theirs. You are lost to me and your name forgotten like thieves. Call not my name in the clan rolls."
I spun and stalked to the pelt and yanked it up before walking away. My mother ran to catch me as all the clan present began to talk. I glanced at her, "leave. I do not need you. I will go to the Emperor and demand my place and right to start a new clan."
She gasped, "Star go back and..."
I hissed, "they are dead to me."
Those words sometimes return to haunt the ones that speak them in anger. I chose a human word for my clan name before I even reached home and packed. I used a machine to clean the pelt and claws and then headed to the starport. I used the imperial sanction law to buy passage on a freighter going to Kair.
There were fifty crew and ten passengers. The captain was a stunning young kaire female named Ash Sa No Urr Petti. She was yellow with black spots. One of the passengers was a female scholar that was a couple of years past mating named Mew Saj No Den Quillin. She was blueish silver with yellow spots. Both had refused or ignored males that tried to mate with them.
I was alone and without clan and no one spoke to or with me. Well almost no one, the girl Mew would sometimes speak to me and the captain whenever she saw me. The freighter was slow and old and took two days to skip out of the system. The jumps towards Kair were not as long as other newer ships.
A week out of the system and between jumps a huge ship appeared. Alarms went off and the ship speakers gave us warning that the ship was a Slith hunt ship. I was grabbing my weapons when the freighter shuddered as huge grav tractors locked on and then the world went dark. I woke to pain and opened my eyes.
I was naked and in a crude cage and slowly let my eyes search while I listened. I was on a small shuttle and heading into atmosphere as humans spoke of a hunt. I turned my head to see two other cages. One with the captain who looked pissed and the other with Mew who looked frightened.
I carefully looked around as one of the humans walked to the cages and shook mine, "your pelt will look real good in my study."
The others laughed but I came off the floor in a lunge and grabbed the man. I yanked him into the bars as the other men yelled. One hand slashed claws across his throat as the other slipped a small knife out of his belt and palmed it. He was yanked away as blood gushed out of his throat and I growled, "I can hunt to human."
They shoved stun sticks through the bars but I avoided them. One yelled and the men backed away and went to the man that was dying. I squatted and glanced around as they tried to save him and stood to step back to the bars. My hand snapped the knife blade open and I brought it up between the cage door and frame.
The landing chime sounded as I sawed and wiggled the blade and worked the locking bolt into the doorlock. I felt the door move and looked at the men before I shoved and then leaped and roared. I hit one and stabbed into his gut with the knife before ripping it up. I lashed out with claws from my other hand.
They ripped the face off another man as I tossed the first aside and leaped for the next. One lifted a pistol as I crashed into the man and I spun with him and brought the knife up and threw. It struck the one with the pistol in the eye and he screamed and fell. I ripped through the pants of the man I had landed on and he screamed as I ripped off more than the pants.
I yanked his pistol out and spun and pushed him into the others. I brought the pistol up and shot a man in the chest and another in the face. I spun and ran for the bridge and leaped and caught the ladder. I rolled up and onto the walk and brought the pistol up as the hatch opened and I fired.
It was the engineer and he went back and down as I rushed the hatch and fired at the human that turned. I killed another that was still in the seat and trying to use the comm. I quickly searched them and took two pistols before I started back to the shuttle hold. I killed the men I had only wounded and found the keys for the cages.
I let the captain out and then Mew and headed for the bridge, "we are on the ground somewhere."
The somewhere was on the edge of a plain with tall trees and few bushes. There were signs of a camp but no one was there. The captain hissed and I looked at her as she touched one of the displays, "this says ... it has been a month since we were taken."
I looked at her and then at Mew, "I doubt if this planet is occupied."
She shook her head and I turned as my mind spun and I had the idea, "we need to take the shuttle up and retake the ship or take theirs."
She frowned as Mew hissed, "not me! I am not going back."
I moved towards her as she looked around and could smell her fear and something else. I suddenly realized it was musk and I growled as my left hand snapped out. I caught the back of her neck and squeezed and she froze. I moved against her and sniffed and set the pistol on a console.
I slipped my right hand between her legs while still holding her, "Mew Saj No Den Quillin I see you."
She whimpered as I gently began to rub through her wet pussy. She humped and her eyes went wide. I slipped a finger into her while still rubbing and she shivered and wiggled. I heard the captain chuckle as I continued to finger Mew and slid one up and into her deeper. She began to pant and shake and jerk and I finally pulled her down.
I let her neck go as I buried my finger in her and she arched her back, "ooohhhh!"
I moved between her legs and over her like a human would and pressed against her, "I claim you."
I thrust and shoved and my cock emerged and entered her. She clutched me as her pussy was stretched, "aaahhhh!"
I began to fuck deeper and rubbed her cheek with mine and growled as I nipped the side of her neck. She spasmed and bucked and thrashed while her tight pussy began to milk my cock, "yyyeeeesssss!"
I kept it slow and used firm strokes as I buried my cock as deep as I could each time. She hugged me and continued to struggle and buck, "ooohhhh!"
Slowly I began to fuck her harder and she was still wild as she twisted and convulsed and wrapped her legs around me. I finally shoved into her and held her while gushing sperm. She gasped and jerked when she felt the warm cum spurting inside her, "YES!"
When I was done I relaxed and rubbed her cheek, "we will return to the ship and I will protect you and kill those that have done this. You will follow me now mate."
She hugged me and shivered as she sighed, "yes mate."
I pulled out and moved off her before I pulled her up and turned to the grinning captain. I moved back to the displays, "does it say if both ships are in orbit?"
She turned, "no but we need to get to the freighter."
I shook my head, "if it is here. I would attack the Slith hunt ship first."
She snorted, "there are only three of us."
I growled, "and your crew will be in stasis on that ship. The freighter is huge and slow and we would not be able to escape."
She shook her head, "my ship..."
My left hand caught the back of her neck and she stiffened. I sighed, "you are a stubborn and beautiful female. I can not let you kill us or take our only chance."
I turned her and looked into her face and she stiffened and mewed and I glanced at Mew before looking at the captain, "Ash Sa No Urr Petti I see you."
She wiggled and her eyes widened and I caressed her body with my right hand, "you are beautiful. You are also strong willed and stubborn and wrong this time. You are a ship captain and I am a warrior. We need to kill the humans that are the threat and free our people. Once we have their ship we call for the fleet."
She looked at me and I slowly relaxed my left hand. She sighed and shivered and her left hand caught my right. She slowly lowered it to her pussy as she spread her legs, "I claim you."
I smiled and pressed against her as I rubbed her pussy. She groaned and shivered as I slipped a finger over her clit and then into her. I kept running my finger into her while pressing on her clit and it was a minute before she jerked and her pussy clenched, "ooohhhh!"
I pulled her down to the deck and laid her back while she shuddered. I moved down and pushed her legs open and began to lick her pussy. She wiggled and humped and titled her hips, "mmmm!"
She was very wet as I pushed my tongue into her and then covered her clit. I wiggled my tongue and kept sucking and she twisted and bucked and struggled, "aaaahhhhh!"
I moved over her and pressed and my cock emerged and pushed into her very hot and slippery pussy. Her pussy stretched as I sank my cock all the way into her and she put her arms around me. I humped and rubbed and pressed as I rubbed my cheek against hers. She wiggled and kept lifting her hips and I pulled back.
She clutched me and pulled, "nnnoooo!"
I grinned as I nipped her neck and thrust back into her and started to fuck her. I would plant my cock as deep as I could and rub against her. It was not long before she was bucking and thrashing while she wailed, "yyyeeeesssss!"
She began to constantly spasm and jerk while her pussy kept grasping and milking my cock. I finally shoved into her and held her tight while I spewed and pumped a thick stream of sperm. She jerked and clutched me as she wrapped her legs around me, "YES!"
I let her pussy squeeze all the cum into her before I rubbed her cheek and slowly pulled out. She groaned and laid back as I knelt, "you are so going to fuck us a lot."
Mew laughed as she crossed the room and knelt, "his sperm taste good too."
I caught Ash's hand and stood and pulled her up, "you can compare notes later. Now we need a plan and we need to start with the Slith hunt ship. If we tamper with the comm to make static we should be able to return to the ship. When we shut down we use the human pistols and the hunting long guns to attack those in the bay."
I looked at them and the captain nodded, "that would work."
I looked at Mew, "you stay behind me at all times."
She nodded and I caressed her cheek, "let me kill the bastards."
I looked at the smiling captain, "we take the bridge and then engineering and then we search for your crew. After that we search for any we might have missed and call the fleet and take your ship back."
She grinned fiercely, "I follow you my mate."
I was almost surprised the plan got us onto the hunt ship. I was at the hatch with one of the human rifles at my shoulder. I had two pistols in my belt and waited as the shuttle started to shut down. I hit the hatch release while lifting the barrel of the rifle. Three were in the bay, two humans and a reptile.
The rifle roared as I fired and repeated it while moving. All three went down as I shifted and searched for more. Ash joined me and I gestured and Mew ran out and stopped behind me. I moved towards the hatch with the captain beside me. When I stepped out she turned to face the other way.
She watched behind us as I led the way to the bridge. I stopped just outside and glanced back and gestured as I handed the rifle to Mew. We pulled pistols and moved together before stepping onto the bridge. There were six humans on the bridge and I shot the first to turn. After that we killed the rest while they tried to react.
I moved to the command chair after they were down and touched the command wand. I looked at Ash, "send the message to fleet."
She nodded and moved to a console as I checked the dead and moved out of the bridge after stripping weapons off. I smiled and caressed Mew's cheek, "still following?"
She nodded and I changed the pistol magazine and gave her all the weapons. Ash slipped out a moment later and pushed the command wand into the hatch lock. The hatch closed and she locked it and pulled the wand out, "now engineering."
I led with Mew following and Ash behind her watching behind us. We did not go through the crew area, instead we went down and through smaller ways until we reached engineering. At the hatch I moved Mew against the wall and gestured to Ash. She slipped up and we went through together.
A Sizz turned and I shot it in the head and Ash killed another. I glanced back as Mew followed and we went to a secondary hatch. When we opened it there were two human males and an armed Kaire warrior. I shot the warrior in the chest and then the head before shifting. Ash killed one of the humans and we both shot the other human.
I made sure they were dead and we searched engineering before giving Mew the weapons and leaving. Ash used the command wand to lock the engineering hatches. We began to search the hold areas and found two huge stasis containers. The first we opened was empty but the second held her crew.
They were in cages of three in each with ten cages. I shut the stasis down and we broke them out of the cages. I had Mew hand out the weapons to the crew. I looked at them, "we are going to hit the crew areas and kill them. They are mostly human but we have found Sizz and Kaire so be ready for anything."
They looked at Ash and she smiled, "he is my mate and a warrior and knows what he is doing."
They looked at each other and I growled, "I do not have time to teach you. Those with weapons stay in front and when we find or kill these bastards pass the weapons back."
I started moving and sending teams down halls and to different areas. When I entered the huge common area forty human, Kaire and Sizz were watching a vid of one of our crew being killed. I shot a Kaire in the head and everyone froze, "get on the floor or die!"
