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.....

Lacey Schmidt: The Trouble with Super is that you can't stop reading it. Mr. Barrett's characters are all to easy to relate to even if you don't have a super quirk of your own, and their plight is both heart-rendingly funny and heart-warmingly sad at the same time. It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...

neil101: The best story I have read online in quite some time. The casual violence is tamed down with easy going wit. It reads like a Joe Abercrombie novel .Looking forward to more. Thanks.

Lauren Suzmeyan-Raine: I'm so glad you found a place to post your stories. I was horrified when I saw yours had been taken down, they are definitely the best 'reading' stories I've ever read. And I've made it my business to read every one I can. Well done.Lauren

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...

ga1984: I really enjoyed it! Characters were deep and plot was pretty complex. A bit on the violent side but it doesnt detract from the story. Very dark but situations make sense. Ends kinda abruptly and later chapters will need some editing work. I'm assuming there's more in the works?
