"Imam wants to see the two of you." Jack said.

"Why?" Rhea said, moving away from Riddick.

"He didn't tell me, he just said to come get you guys." Jack said.

"Give me a sec to get a shirt on." Riddick said.

"'Kay." Jack said, heading out of the room.

Riddick turned to go, and Rhea couldn't help but give him a quick pat on the butt.

"What? You need to watch yourself. I'll take you on this floor right here and now." Riddick said.

"Really now?" Rhea said, mischievously.

"Gross! I'm still here!" Jack said, from the other room.

"Sorry." Rhea said, while laughing


"Do you plan on staying here?" Imam said.

"At the temple or on New Mecca?" Rhea said.

"Neither." Riddick said.

"Does that go for the both of you?" Imam said.

"Yes." Riddick said.

"No." Rhea said.

"What?" Riddick said.

"I have to check this place to see if I have family or friends here." Rhea said.

"Well I plan on getting out of here as soon as possible, so make it quick." Riddick said.

"I can't just find them, pop in for a quick hello, and then just leave with some guy I just met." Rhea said.

"So, now I'm some guy you just met?" Riddick said.

"You know what I mean." Rhea said.


Rhea was walking around asking if anyone had seen someone from her family or one of her friends. Rhea hadn't had any luck so far. Rhea rested in a near by park and thought about what had happened earlier.

Flashback

"Can't you just hear me out for 5 minutes?" Rhea said.

"No, because you're too stuck on finding people that probably aren't even here." Riddick said, while getting ready to leave.

"So you're telling me that you'd take me somewhere else they'd probably be?" Rhea said.

"No, because I'm looking to be away from civilization. Where mercs and everyone else won't keep bothering me." Riddick said, never stopping to look at Rhea while he was getting ready.

Rhea stepped on something Riddick was about to pick up.

"Will you wait for me?" Rhea said.

"You've got the rest of the day to find them, if you don't then you come with me, and if you do find them you'll have to choose between me and them." Riddick said, picking up what Rhea's foot was resting on as if the force she put on it was nothing.

End Flashback

"I might not see them again if I leave with him. Maybe I should ask Imam for advice." Rhea said.

Rhea found Imam while he was praying with the others, so she waited until he was done to ask him.

"If you were me, would you go with a guy like, Riddick, somewhere that you would most likely never see anyone you knew ever again, or would you stay to find family and friends that have raised and loved you all and most of your life?" Rhea said.

"I don't know, because I haven't lived your life. You have and you still can." Imam said, before walking away.


"I didn't find them" Rhea said.

"Great, let's go." Riddick said, getting up.

"I've decided to keep looking." Rhea said.

Riddick stopped in his tracks.

Rhea felt a bit uneasy because she wasn't sure how Riddick was going to react.

Riddick turned to face Rhea and turned back around, he shook his head and started chuckling.

"Figures." Riddick said, he looked back at Rhea one more time. "Women." Riddick said, and walked out.


"You're not even going to say goodbye to me?" Rhea said.

"No, because people only do that sentimental crap when they feel someone matters to them." Riddick said.

Riddick continued to walk past Rhea when she stopped in shock of his words.

"So, I don't mean anything to you?" Rhea said angrily.

"As far as I'm concerned, you're just another one night stand. And trust me, there will be several others for me." Riddick said.

'This asshole needs to check himself.' Rhea thought.

Rhea waited until they reached an area with benches to start rubbing up against Riddick.

"What are you doing?" Riddick said.

"One more time, before you leave?" Rhea said.

"Hooked on it already, huh?" Riddick said, cockily.

'That's right, get cocky. See what happens when you do.' Rhea thought.

Rhea and Riddick sat down on a bench, and she started grinding her hips into his.

"We can't do it outside." Riddick said.

"You can feel me through your pants can't you?" Rhea said, starting to make out with Riddick.

Rhea could feel Riddick's answer before he said anything.

Riddick grabbed hold of Rhea's butt and started rocking her back and forth on him the way he wanted her to.

"Almost done." Riddick said, his hand up Rhea's shirt.

'That's my cue.' Rhea thought, getting off of Riddick.

"Why'd you stop?" Riddick said.

"I wanted to give you something before you left, and I thought blue balls would be appropriate. I wanted it to be something that let you know how I feel about you. Have fun walking to your ship." Rhea said, as she walked away.


After Rhea had gotten back to the apartment, she took the longest, hottest shower she had in her life. Rhea scrubbed as much of Riddick off of her as was physically possible.

'I'll never be clean again. I can't believe I had that asshole inside of me.' Rhea thought.

After Rhea was done crawled into bed.

"Where'd, Riddick, go?" Jack said, walking into Rhea's room after she noticed that Rhea came back alone.

"I don't know, he didn't tell me." Rhea said, rolling over so she was facing away from Jack.

"I thought you guys were like, together." Jack said, sitting down at the edge of the bed.

"No, he's just some guy I happened to think was worth something." Rhea said.

"Do you think you'll ever see him again?" Jack said.

Rhea thought for a few minutes before she answered Jack.

"If you love something set it free, and if it comes back to you it was meant to be." Rhea said.
