The Adventuress

03Dec15

The Jennings’s B Patent engine hummed like a maiden at work. Under the thin brass cover Bella Baxendale knew a thousand little stem valves were sliding up and down like seamstresses’ fingers to weave elaborate tapestries in the air; all using the power of steam.

Our story started here. Once Dane was certain that Dale was heading back to the Ad Astra he cut ahead of her so that he could run a discreet scan as she came aboard. The package she carried was definitely an encrypted data chip of the kind designed to avoid official scrutiny. All the way back […]


TV Spanking
