Sue just couldn't believe this was happening, her being somehow transported from the safety of her home to this weird place, wherever it might be. Her force field went up immediately as she formed and looking all around her she felt a chill throughout her entire body. "BLASTAAR!!! YOU!!!!!!!" Susan concentrated to triple her force field & was ready for battle being in front of her was one of the Fantastic four's greatest enemies who's power, strength and attitude was an immense threat to the team as well as all Humanity.
Finding her voice she said: "So you are the reason why I've been whisked away from my home!!" which should have been impossible with all of Reed's safeguards installed. However when it came to all super villains where there's a will then there's a way, she thought. Something about this was not right, she thought seeing him stand there like this in a believe-it-or-not nonthreatening stance, his usual 'I AM ALL POWERFUL' normal demeanor.
Almost softly he said: "Tis true, I did transport you away from the accursed others who would interfere with what I have to say to you, Susan Storm Richards of Terra." Something about his tone relaxed her a bit enough to where she dropped her force field and stood vulnerable to him in a show of trust. "Fine, Blastaar, please tell me why I'm here" and Sue saw something in his face that was almost....."NOOO!! IT CAN'T BE!!!!" she thought but kept that from showing on her face. Not believing her eyes, against her better judgment she took a step forward and softly to him who was just a few feet away: "Please, Blastaar, tell me what's going on."
He slowly raised his hands towards her in an obvious attempt to show he was not threatening her & put his big hands on her shoulders: "Susan of Terra, you are truly an amazing female & totally uniquely special in ALL the Cosmos. Please accept this gift from me and I want to wish you a........." he was stumbling to search for a word that may not be in his language so she gave him a moment to try to translate whatever he was having trouble with. He lowered one hand and her mouth dropped open in shock as he brought up a box of chocolates in red foil paper with a heart on it and he said looking into her eyes: "if this is wrong then I know not what to add since my language has no such event." He actually gulped and whispered as nonthreatening as he could though his brutal harsh voice was not meant for softness: "Happy Valentine's Day, Susan Storm Richards."
Stunned, she stood there with her mouth still open and her eyes widened as he leaned in closer to her and she drew in a deep breath when his lips touched hers for a few seconds. It was sexual or lust but a respectful kiss & she felt so utterly weird when she did not pull away but found her lips kissing him back in that same unsexual or lustful fashion. His hand was still holding the gift but his other hand was still on Sue's shoulders in a soft tender light touch that sent shivers down her spine. It wasn't the animal touch that was characteristic of his race & Sue could not pull away enjoying the tenderness of his touch that sent a million messages throughout her body and her mind. Remarkably he was the one who broke contact with her & she did not detect any gloating in his eyes that he was superior over his nemesis Reed Richards. No what she saw was directed at her as a person & as a female, one of deep respect and also a longing for it to be different. She was immensely puzzled by all this & he handed her the box of chocolates noting there was another smaller box which he whispered softly: "For you."
Susan was frozen to her spot as he backed away from her & said: "This new transportation device will never be used against you or your team, Susan Storm Richards, this I swear to you along with my word. You need not even mention it of this incident to your......" he frowned & she knew he was going to say 'husband' but instead he said: "the others. No one but us will be aware of what happened here today however I reserve the right to have it utilized again in a year on this......." struggling with the translation Sue smiled & said: "holiday". He nodded his gratitude & as he activated the device he said: "Susan Storm Richards of Terra, know this: if your marital or your romantic status ever changes I am here for you." Sue nodded her head & blew him a kiss that had him blushing and she knew this would never ever be topped in her experiences with aliens throughout the Cosmos.
Sue felt the weird pins & needles effect of the long range transporter swirl around her body and a moment later she stood in her bedroom where she was plucked away from. She took a step wondering how she was going to explain this to her husband when she felt the weird swirling engulf her body, a smile on her face thinking: "Oh, Blastaar, you old softie you! Wanting more of......" Her thoughts froze as she formed & she saw a figure striding towards her & immediately erected her force field. Of all people to whisk her away, again, it had to be Kl'rt none other than the superskrull himself, one of the most powerful & dreaded enemies of the Fantastic Four & of Sue.
Her force field would hold against his attacks, at least for a while, until she could send word to Reed & the rest of the FF & she knew their last encounter was one where she narrowly escaped with her life so she was ready for anything he threw her way. Almost anything she found out a moment later after she thought: "What the hell's happening today? Is Rod Sterling in town & forget to tell me?!!" Reaching for her emergency beacon she saw a smile cross his face as he said: "There's no need to summon the others, Mrs Richards, I've no qualm or with you today." He waved his hand and voided her force field & said: "both our powers are neutralized here, Susan. You have no need to fear me. I give you my word as a skrull & as your......" he hesitated as he said: "as one bearing gifts to you this day." Susan almost felt dizzy, not from a weapon or side affect from whatever was being used to nullify her power but from the second strange event of the day.
"What........." she found herself having trouble finding her voice: "what do you want?" He stepped forward & she automatically stepped back, crouching in a battle stance in a hand-to-hand combat pose and he stopped moving towards her, a puzzled expression on his face. "I said that I mean you no harm, Mrs Richards, & I swear this with all of the pride of me being a Skrull warrior." She relaxed slightly & nodded for him to approach but she dropped into a battle stand & tightened again seeing him reach into his pocket to take out a.....and thought: "OMG!! NOT HIM TOO!!!!" What she saw was two packages in red foil again and she had no doubt that his next words would have 'gift' somewhere in there. "Susan of Earth, I would like to present you with these gifts from your world since nothing like these exist in mine. Ours is a warrior caste whereas yours is not. Please accept these 3 small items as a gift on this day of holidays." Sue's mouth did a repeat of a few minutes ago with Blastaar and she wondered what entity in the Cosmos was pulling a prank on her of this magnitude. He walked slowly towards her in what he intended as a non-menacing stride & she said: "Kl'rt, are you feeling okay today? Do you detect any strange influence?" For once she was actually concerned for her super powered foe.
A smile came to his face, not making him the least bit less threatening appearing however he slowly touched her arm & said: "You were always so......" his expression softened, if that was even possible as he continued: "tender and caring, a virtue my race finds....." Sue could tell by the formation of his mouth that 'disgusting' was probably the word he was going to say however he apparently felt it wasn't appropriate here so he said: "not as appealing as you Earthings." She was surprised he said it without the distasteful sound he had always used it before and she said in a warm soft tone: "Kl'rt, please listen to me. I don't know what's going on but I think there is an alien entity affecting you. I just had a similar experience with Blastaar & he's always been a sworn enemy with the Fantastic Four & all Humanity. Something is happening that I can't explain and you need to be aware of anything that might be affec.....OH!!!!!" She stopped talking when his lips pressed on hers, not forcefully but in a tender gesture of a lover or suitor for her affections.
For the second time that day she did not pull back from the person kissing her, not wanting to upset him but she found her lips meeting his in a somewhat different type of kiss than Blastaar's, the super Skrull's more hungrier yet not in the breeding sexual forceful way typical of his race. When his free hand circled her waist and slid up her back she felt a thousand pinpricks that were far from the effects of the transporter & she leaned in closer to him not breaking his kiss. She thought: "OMG!!! NOOOO! I'M BEING INFLUENCED BY WHATEVER FORCES ARE MAKING BLASTAAR AND KL'RT DESIRING ME!!! NOOOOOOO!!!!!! I HAVE TO STOP THIS MADNESS BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE!!!!" Sue kept on kissing him as his hands softly caressed her back and as she pressed her body against his she felt his very impressive bulge, not pulling back one bit. She forgot they were enemies & forgot all about her marriage & husband & family as her body pressed even more against the super Skrull's body and she knew that all was lost. It didn't improve any when she felt her body on it's own accord rub against Kl'rt's much bigger very hard body & they both knew that she was his for the taking. Susan did not wonder if she herself was being influenced somehow & if she had she would realize that she didn't care if she was or not, all she wanted right now was to touch & be touched by Kl'rt who would normally be her adversary & thought: "Not today he's not! He's a man & that's what I need!!"
Sue was stunned, disbelieving that he was pulling away from her when she thought he should be picking her up & carrying her off to a bed however he leaned towards her from a few feet away & said: "Yes, you're right, I feel an influence on me, on my mind & I must say that I noticed you are acting differently too, Mrs Richards. I do want you very much but not like this." He gave her the two gifts & she was shocked for a moment thinking he was so very wrong at what he was doing and he could have her right now. Anger built up suddenly & she said unkindly: "You said that you had 3 gifts! I only see 2." Leaning towards her she thought he was going to take her into his arms however he touched the smaller gift and said: "There are two items in here." Blushing now she pulled away and asked, her anger down: Should I wait until I'm returned home?" At this he told her that she could open them both if she wanted and when Susan saw the 2 diamond earrings she thanked him wondering if there was a tracking device inside them like her husband did to her gold wedding band. For her safety of course, he had told her.
The second box was in her hand & she realized that the super Skrull mentioned there were 2 gifts in the box and she had to smile at this with him not realizing that earrings came as a pair but being he never shopped for a female or for jewelry he would not have known. Suddenly touched by this she leaned upwards to kiss him lightly on his rough lips whispering a soft "thank you, Kl'rt, they are beautiful!" The box in her hand was misleading because it was the size of a hardcover book and was filled with various colored tissue paper and she asked in a joking way if he wrapped it himself. It went over his head & he explained how he had to take the form of a human to shop for these items and when he'd asked a salesperson advice what gifts he could give to a very special woman she told him to try the jewelry department. The earrings alone must have cost several thousand dollars which Susan was polite enough not to inquire how he paid for them however her thoughts vanished when her digging revealed a ring in the mess of all the tissue paper: a huge diamond engagement ring. Looking at it she saw Kl'rt drop to one knee in a typical romantic gesture of a soon to be fiance and he said to her: "Susan Storm Richards, if your marital status ever changes, will you marry me?" She felt so lightheaded that she felt herself passing out.
