    Summary

    “Rey,” he says. But what are the words that should follow this? It’s a mystery. Her name is enough.

    “Ben,” she responds, smiling. Willing him on.

    Ben finds courage in her eyes. “I’ve never wished for anything as much as I wish I could touch you right now,” he says so slowly, as if the words themselves were causing him pain.

    He knows he said the right thing when her eyes flutter and her mouth parts.

    “Oh, Ben,” she says breathlessly, “Say more.”

    Astronomer Dr. Ben Solo grew up with his head in the stars. He was alone but not always lonely.

    Until he met Miss Rey Jackson, grad student at the University of St. Mary's, London, his liaison on the Cassini Regio Project researching Saturn's moons Iapetus and Phoebe.

    For the first time in his life, Ben longed for something on his own planet.

    Summary

    I run out to the lobby, grabbing my tablet and try to remain cool in the face of Satan in a Suit.

    “Mr. Ren, how can I help you?” He’s taller and more broad than pictures can translate. His black on black suit seems menacing, not a coincidence, I am sure. He seems a bit taken aback, something I am used to in this male-dominated profession. When most of the employees here come for help with their computers or experience network issues, they don’t expect me to know how to solve their problems. Challenging stereotypes one satisfied customer at a time.

    He breathes in deep and pauses before he speaks. I think I see the flash of recognition in his eyes but I keep my body still and my face impassive. Yeah, I am an omega, Ren. Get over it.

    Rey works in the IT Department for a tech company that is recovering from a recent hostile takeover. Ever at odds with the universe, Rey continues to live against the grain by excelling in a male driven industry and by redefining what it means to be omega.

    Summary

    "I'll destroy her," rings in his ears and he's shocked by how shamed he is he ever said those words. He’d meant them, oh how he’d meant them. He’d been lost to his rage and he’d thought he could … he knows now that he could never hurt her.

    Rey ...

    Then Kylo pulls himself to his full height. She rejected him. Met his offer with going for a weapon. Like she always does. She always, always strikes first. Shooting at him on Takodana, attempting to on Starkiller Base … she was even the one to ignite her blade in those snowy woods.
    ---
    Kylo struggles with Rey's rejection and a new threat pushes them together again.
