How titian-chis came to be.

Titan Ko

Titan Ko

For years, she wanted children. She loved everything about them. Their laughter made her feel warm inside. Their youthful energy made her happy to be alive. However, her own body wouldn’t allow her to produce offspring. She had no mate to call her own and she didn’t have the right parts for the job anyway. She thought that she would have deal with things the way they were.

That was until she spoke with Hiroko while she was out with her own children. The Mother of the Skies spotted the sky nymph walking among the clouds with two of her sons. She straightened up her kimono and approached the young mother.

“Good evening, Hiroko-san,” she said. “Hello, little dears.” Mother and children paused and looked up.

“Hello, Sachi-san,” Hiroko said. “How have you been?”

“Good,” she said. “And you?”

“I have been really busy with the little ones lately.” She patted her older son on the head.

“I see.” Sachi felt a little tinge of sadness build up in her chest. “You know; I wish that I could have children of my own.”

“You can,” Hiroko said. Sachi gave her a strange look.

“Are you making fun of me?” she asked.

“No, no! I would never do that!”

The Mother of the sky leaned in with her eyes narrowed. “Then how?”

Hiroko leaned into the other woman’s ear. “You have to make them with your own blood.” She noticed the strange look on Sachi’s face. “Oh, don’t look at me like that. It’s really easy. Angel and demons do it all the time.”

“You’re kidding.”

“I am not.”

“So… I could make children out my blood?”

“Yes.”

Sachi grabbed her by the hands. “Teach how to make my own children!” Hiroko blinked at her with big eyes.

“O…kay…” she mumbled.

----------

The Mother of the Sky got right to work with making her children. She collected stars, clouds, fire, small stones, rabbit furs, hawk feathers, snow, butterflies, and gold. At sundown, she began her work. The fur and feathers were dropped into a pot of warm water. Sachi mixed in the stones, clouds, stars, snow, and butterflies as she heated up the water. She sprinkled in the gold as the water boiled. After everything was set, Sachi laid down and went to sleep.

Three days later, a small face appeared in the hardened white mix. The little mouth was open as if begging for food. The Mother’s heart fluttered as she gazed upon it. Already, she cut her arm and let the blood flow into the open mouth. A pulse ripped through the air as the face closed its mouth and opened its eyes. The Mother stepped back with her mouth covered.

“You want more?” she asked. The face’s mouth moved up and down if trying to talk. Its mother lowered her hand and smiled.

“Okay, I will give you more,” she said. This time, she cut deeper into her arm and fed the face more blood. The face ended up taking up to half of her blood. Afterwards, she collapsed on the gold and navy tiled floor. She ended up sleeping it off for close to five days. And then…

“Mama!” a voice shouted. “Mama, wake up! Mama!” She fluttered open her eyes. A child about six years old stood over her, staring down. His white-blonde hair could rival the sun in the sky. His deep blue eyes pierced an arrow into her heart. She sat up and placed her hand to her chest.

“My son!” she said. She reached forward and embraced the child. The child slowly embraced his mother back. It wouldn’t be long before this titan-chi would have brothers and sisters.

Strangely enough, no one would know of their existence until about World War II.

Mourn8220House: When first reading "Avarice," I thought it would be another fairytale but I was taken back the author's approach and choice of ending. There is little to be said for the story and overall plot besides the sudden twists and speculation, other than that I do not want to ruin a fantastic tale, you m...

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...

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

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...

Hali McGowan: when will the third book be done? I am absolutely hooked. I red the first two books within less than a week. I'm itching for the third one. The plotline is absolutely wonderful. I've never been much for sci-fi ish books. but you've got me hooked on this series

makaylakay: I love love this story! It's written incredibly and well thought-out plot! I love how it's a different twist in fantasy fiction, other then the usual vampire or werewolves. Love the romantics and drawn to the two characters so much already! This book will draw you in within the first chapter and ...

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.

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

Jessica Esa: With a tantalising end to the first chapter, the authour has given us a treat and a welcome addition to the fantasy adventure genre. To limit it to just such would be an injustice however, as this novel clearly draws on elements of historical fiction, fairy tale and horror. Simply, there's someth...
