Journal of Gordon Ogle – Day 6

<–Previous Reached a good sized town. Coming up to it was a giant satellite dish, so someone here must have communication with the shells. Unless some part of it doesn’t work. You could tell right away this town was a fair sight bigger than the first one, and had always been. The ruins here still …

Journal of Gordon Ogle – Day 5

<–Previous I left. It ain’t like I can’t go back. Got my hands on an old map. Fella said it might not be all that accurate anymore, but what with the scribbles all over it somethins gotta make sense. I rode out of town east, at an easy saunter, rifle ready, but then I thought, …

Journal of Gordon Ogle – Day 4

<–Previous The girl still hasn’t been let out of surgery, guess the impact got her pretty messed up. Medic says she’ll be fine in the end, but it takes time. Hundred years ago, neither of would have made it. The Miracles of Science. I’m sitting for a bit in a bomb shelter that’s been converted …

<–Previous I woke in the middle of the night, couldn’t sleep. Kept dreaming about zombies. Pulled my rifle out, looked through the scope out at the desert night.

<–Previous Woke up in a hospital facility in some run-down town in the middle of nothing, want to leave as soon as possible. Someone found our escape pod and rescued us. The girl is still being cared for; the escape pod malfunctioned and landed in the middle of the desert. Thought Earth would be pleasant, …

New Lives

The 4th Orbital Shell drifted serenely around the planet Earth. Among its millions of inhabitants, two were about to be drawn out and woven together by fate’s random hand. One was a woman, a laborer from the Lower Shells. She was running more and more behind on her clone payments and her current body was …

Embers and Sparks

A tense peace rested over the galaxy, with Lady Ariata of Bresugal and Lady 01d of the Geshente finally relenting to a three-way cease fire, but continuing to make clear their icy mood for all concerned. Meetings were short, anger boiled, but the meetings happened. The soldiers were at rest, if only temporarily. The guards …

Bounty Hunter Kurose

The bounty hunter Kurose prepared for another round of earning his wages and staying alive. He was still on Maachip, still tracking most of the same targets, and his employer was getting…touchy. He’d apparently dealt with hunters before that weren’t a hundred percent willing to risk their lives for a mark. Kurose wasn’t exactly lazy, …
