In 2015 something nasty found our world. They call themselves the Tai-Kok. They are malevolent, depraved ghouls who live to eat. The image of these tall, hairless, skeletal humanoids with a mouth full of sharp metal teeth is forever burned into the minds of every man, woman and child left on Earth. Completing the nightmare are their three blood-red eyes that glare out of skin so transparent you can watch as your loved ones are being digested.
No one knows how they found our world or why they consider us good eating. The few peace delegates that tried to communicate with them got butchered. After that, everyone was too busy running for their lives to find out why.
The Tai-Kok ate their way across Europe and the Middle East until they had the bad luck to capture a suicide bomber and take him aboard their ship for snack time. He blew himself up over the Pacific. Luckily, the ship crashed outside of Tucson, Arizona. We salvaged their technology and have been using it against them ever since.
Four years ago my cousin, Kaylee Jones, mated with a Coletti Warlord which proved to be a mixed blessing. The Coletti and their allies now protect Earth from Tai-Kok and Rodan raiders but this protection came with a price. They demanded we turn over all psychic women to them. Seems they need us as breeding stock.
Why you ask? Six hundred years ago the Coletti race had almost been wiped out in the Great War. Unfortunately for the females of the universe, chemicals used in the war created a genetic anomaly and only one female baby was born for every one thousand males. The Coletti women were going the way of the Dodo bird.
Facing extinction, the Coletti Warlords started raiding other species for their women. It didn’t matter one bit if the woman protested. They took her anyway. Once Zarek, the Overlord of the Coletti clans, discovered the Jones family’s unique psychic powers and our blood’s ability to heal cellular damage, he promptly seized control of Earth. Any woman who displayed psychic capability was immediately taken to their home world to be converted. Didn’t that sound like fun?
My name is Zoey Jones and there is no way in hell I’ll let them turn me into a brood mare. Am I psychic? You bet your ass I am. My shields are impenetrable and their friggin’ mind control doesn’t work on me.
Any Warlord stupid enough to try and convert me is going to get his snake penis thingy whacked off. No, I’m not suicidal or crazy. I’m pissed. This is the United fucking States and slavery was outlawed over a hundred years ago. Women have rights, too. It’s time someone stood up to them and said no. They want a fight? They’ve got one.
