Part 2: Chapter 5: Beginnings…

"When I was very young, I lived with the outcasts." My mother started saying, a semi-wistful look on her face. "It happened after the schism. Ace divided the world in half: his supporters who wanted a strong, dominating leader who promised them a cushy life with no problems to worry about, some unemployed scientist types,…

Part 2: Chapter 4: Naren

I woke up on a hard, metal floor. "Where am I?" I said. I looked around. I was in a room with scattered tables with assorted multicolored objects. Some of the objects were vibrating, and the room was lit with a single square light on the top of the small room. I remembered my foot.…

Part 2: Chapter 3: Getting inside

We walked closer to the city. All I could see was a huge, flickering dome. It was so bizarre. From the outside, it was a city with rambling, tall buildings, nothing extraordinary.

Chapter 19: The last job

(This is the last Pearl chapter, for now at least! Three's a charm!) ***********************************Pearl 99****************************************** We landed in a cold floor.

Or maybe…

Chapter 17: Son

Happy 4th! If you don't get what's going on, may I reference you to this chapter:¬†https://annasumner.wordpress.com/2018/04/11/chapter-15-awakening/ *********************Pearl*********************************************************** Hostile. Must defeat hostile. Kazak squirmed and his face turned red. "Jabra no'ct Pearl ti." He gasped. Suddenly, I had control of myself again. Memories and emotions flooded my brain. I no longer wanted to murder Kazak for…
