Shine in the Sky

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

I was raised in a celestial sphere, they are nothing special it is just that those on Earth forgot what they were. Mine was where those who were not wanted were sent, a small bubble of self containment we slipped along our rail in an egg of shame. Orphans, children of begger’s and the results […]

I found solace in lady boys for a while as their imperfections were little more […]

Sleeping Beauty

Damn, thought Janny, it’s another code blue. She sighed. That meant it would be all down to her again. She hated this with a vengeance. ‘Captain Mystwood ma’am?’ Oh no, she had to answer this call. She pressed the blue com button whilst gliding the flyer into the hangar. ‘Received, I’ll be in the office […]
