Kin awoke suddenly. She was disoriented and wasn’t even aware she had been asleep. Looking around, she was lying on grassy hill on which stood a single tree. It was remarkably similar to the Alvera Trees her parents tended on her home world, but his one bore some odd bluish fruit. Standing, she took a moment to get her bearings… which was impossible, because she had no idea where she was. The last thing she remembered was being on patrol on the ship and then… here. A bright, sunny, warm day with two suns visible high in the sapphire-blue sky. Looking down the hill, she saw a structure set into the side of a low rise. A stone entrance with a single torch on either side, and soft music coming from within.
