By the time the third installment of "The Anointed One" rolled around, I had a pretty good idea on what I wanted, and without realizing it, I was doing some basic world building as well.
In this particular story, Valerie's savior gained a name, Fydor. Fydor was what I would probably call a 'retriever', in the sense that he was sent out to find a new addition to the collective, and Valerie was it.
As for the world building, its a little strange, so bear with me as I try to explain.
I'm not sure on what I would've called the overall planet, but I did have rudimentary elements of a hierarchy in place with this third story. I had the Platinum Queen, who was titular leader of what would be called a 'hive' (I'm thinking of hive, because all the elements of a hive were starting to formulate) and what I was calling 'a collective'; I had 'retrievers' (or gatherer in insect parlance I guess); and I was introducing a 'hunter' (or soldier) into the mix. And for this particular plot line in this story, there is a humanoid in the form of Fydor.
Sex is non-existent in this story as well as the violence.
The original title for this story is "A New Beginning", which was inspired by the song "Second Chance" by Shinedown.
