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.....

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...
