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.....

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did. The plot was very well thought out and really interesting. There were not any page breaks or markers to acknowledge ...

Steve Lang: I thought this story was imaginative, and well thought out. I also think it was an original piece, and not a rehash of previous scifi stories I've read in the past.Thank you for the effort put into this tale, and I look forward to reading more of your work!

John Reed: Seadrias masterfully captures the impressiveness and complex scope that a science fiction novel should provide while carefully crafting an entire universe that will leave a reader in awe from start to finish. The only flaw I could find is that I wish I could have read more. This book is certainly...

Sandra Leigh: excellent story. Lots of classic fairy tale elements with a fresh spin. Very much looking forward to the sequel. However, there are a number of typos and minor awkward sentences. I occasionally work for my publisher as an editor and would not mind editing this for you. Feel free to contact m...

Ali Albazaz: I started reading "Caged" few hours ago and I'm on chapter 7 now. Caged is definitely one of the most addictive stories I've ever read. Thank you so much for writing this novel.

Elizabeth Robbins: 4.5 starsAs far as apocalypse stories go, this one took a new direction. I'm glad someone finally addressed the need for a vampire apocalypse! This is sort of a multi-genre festival of delights. With hints of forced societies, vamps, hunters, romance, apocalypse, government conspiracy, and thrill...

Jordan Young: *ALERT FOR POSSIBLE SPOILERS* Where to start? I don't know how to sum up this review, this story was absolutely sensational. Brilliant. Flawless. I loved every single bit of this story, it is truly amazing. I read this story in fifteen hours, it is magnificent. I loved everything about it, the p...

Jade Jez: What a wonderful, immersive book from Eliott McKay. It starts with an air of mystery, introducing main character Michaela, the clumsy teenager. From there, it whisks you off your feet and dumps you into a beautifully written world where you can almost smell and hear everything happening. I go...

Ashley Stryker: So I'm writing this review, keeping in mind that this is a work in progress and it's part of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), so my "deeper" critiques will be saved until it's all finished up.+ Chapter One: A stewardess would not talk to anyone quite like that, particularly a clear minor...

Nymeria: Really can't get enough of this story. It flows well, it captivates the reader from page 1, and throws you into such a well-written, well conceptualized world that you'll believe it's real. Everything in the book is meshed together really well. From character backgrounds to plot twists, you can t...

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...
