Last thing Jupiter Jones remembered was sitting with Caine at a downtown dive bar at one in the morning...
She didn’t know what had sent her back in time, but somehow it was the morning of the fertility clinic all over again. There were things she did know: Balem wanted to kill her, Titus wanted to marry her and then kill her, and —well, actually, she wasn't exactly sure what Kalique wanted.
But if Jupiter could avoid being kidnapped or killed, (or passing out from this strange exhaustion) maybe she could convince Stinger and Caine to help her claim her title and save the Earth all over again. But what would she tell them? Would they even believe the truth? She was the only one who remembered living through this the first time around...wasn’t she?
Abducted and taken to the Jupiter refinery, a woman from Earth negotiates with Lord Balem Abrasax to escape imminent death. Balem agrees to let her live —so long as she continues to amuse him—and to return her to Earth after a thousand and one nights.
Written for alienfromsirius for the Jupiter Ascending Summer Secret Santa.
Prompt: whatever Balem Abrasax (not very specific-so I gathered some inspiration from her tumblr...)
