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.....

Drew C. Elyon: I've only read one chapter so far, but from what I've seen, this is steampunk at its best. The narrative flows so beautifully I could envision every scene in an almost cinematic fashion. I believe in the complexity of simplicity, and this story has that in its descriptions.

Diana Chernenko: I liked this book. Even if the idea of book isn't so new. "girl that should save the world with her super powers." sometimes I thought that she is too overpowered, and I was sometimes really annoyed by her, and felt sorry for her friends and Derek. Moreover I didn't like first chapters when the...
