FSF: The Requirement

For those of you who are here for the A-Z Challenge, you can find my entry for the letter V HERE.

It's time for Five Sentence Fiction!  This week, Lillie provided the following word as a prompt: SHADOWS.

The entire Unchained story to date can be found on this PAGE.

Chapter 29: The Requirement

When Orton woke the next morning, it looked like he could only be a few steps away from his grave as the pain of what his ex-wife had done to him cast shadows across his eyes, informing and impeding his interactions with the world around him.

Even so, the brilliant scientist within him could not be felled quite so easily, and over a nice breakfast of pastries and some kind of exotic coffee, Orton explained to the women what he had learned about Ylana’s people since they last met.  “I think I have an idea of what I need to do,” he concluded, “but you must remain here so I can run a few tests.”

Ylana looked at Nara, who gave her an encouraging smile, and considered that while she did not particularly enjoy the idea of being a laboratory experiment, this brought her one step closer in being able to free her people, so there was only one answer she could give.  “I’ll give you what you need.”

  1. Wow, this is very cool!
    I hope you won't be terribly insulted if I put you in the "Blogs for Readin'" in the sidebar of the infamous Undead in the Netherworld blog.

  2. Nice writing. Engaging story with just this bit.
