Mystery / Fantasy

Prologue to a Freak

He birthed swimming in water, literally , from 4 placenta ... They are in four ... But just one lived.... the people who as there , witnessing the birth they said he chewed the others 3 fetus . He ate his brothers to survive inside the mother's womb.

He had to take place of his brothers. That was his nature. He need to stay alive to plant a new species around us. What is the new about this? None. All the time nature change, transform, give birth to strange lives. And we do not care. I cared . As a scientist i care....

They don't know how to explain years ago and until now they dont... or forgot or they were forced to forget and just accepted the reality... As i did.

My opinion? Maybe he just needed more room to grow. But in the deep of my heart i had a theory.... About involution not evolution of species. I have some wrote on my notes i just have to find....

He was never a freak to me as he was for his mother, father and the world outside .... Was not his fault... no, no, no.... Someone had a extra pair of chromosomes to share, to interfere in the evolution of species. He just was there, close as I in that memorable incident....

Was not Darwin that said " It is not the strongest species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the most susceptible to changes" ? Ok guys i am a fan of Darwin... If he is still alive that would be the definite evidences from his statements...
This boy skipped the evolutionary scale in several generations and managed a mutation .... Born from his brothers using the others 3 different placentas to organize, to evolve and to freak us out..... Until these days ....

I bet you never heard about this in your life.... I bet my heart, my name and what left of me.....


The fact is : since he was born he is called Baby Fish. A torment name to carry on his entire life ... I always thought like that. A boulder, a sin on his shoulders until he dies .....

The family wanted to hide this story because they think it was a freak story and it is.... But i was there and i did my notes. I can say; ancient notes... Very and truly.....And maybe, just maybe i can clear all this things and honor his memory.

He was innocent from all accusations. He simply fought hardly to live and followed the nature travel.


I dont know what happened with me to remember after all .... Maybe because it is my latest days in earth and now i don't care anymore.... And i think he is not guilty from anything.... So i took my old note book, called my memory and started to write.

I've lost my job, my reputation my money all because i was there. And by chance ... Now... i really don't care about me.... It is done.... If you want to read the real story just sit down and take a breath. A long my friend and deep breath .... If you don't agree or think i am a liar just close these notes. They are only notes from a old man.... There is why i started the story in that way to give you a chance to not read it at all... Just judge me as a crazy man and close it.....

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace. However, I was not expecting this to be a vampire book! I am usually not one for novels about vampires, but I was pleasantly surprised! You wrote with such grace a...

Alani Foreigner: I absolutely loved how you created this story. It isn't like the other cliché stories I've ever read. I had just started reading it yesterday and just had to finish it.

maewilde25: I am so in love with this story!!! captivated me till the very end, there wasn't a dull moment.

Kevin Brand: My overall rating: 4.8/5 starsLoved. Every. Second. Everytime I came back to continue reading I got this overwhelming feeling of getting hooked on the first sentence... Over and over and again!The only things that were missing for me include more descriptions on what happens when Reuben touches s...

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.

Sara Grover: When I first started reading, it was a bit slow; though only because it was so information intense and fast-paced in trying to describe how this complex galactic corporation/government like entity controls known space. I would suggest maybe adding a preface to better educate the reader to help av...

Catherine Kopf: Wow! This was a really great story. I really enjoy reading fantasy, so it didn't take long for me to become invested in the book and its characters like Jacob. I really liked your writing style, and it seemed to flow very well. The descriptions that you used for your world were also created n...
