The Beginning and the End.


Cold was the room, cold like a mothers love and so very, very white.

The ghost of all hopes lost was there reveling in the sounds that are  never heard again. New plastic and broken dreams fill the spaces between.

Nature abhors a vacuum and the vacuum abhorred anything natural within these 3 walls , walls that made up the white, white room.

Glass partition on the forth. The world can see inside and it trembles.

I walked in,  hoping... but not much.

I watched that which were once human souls being sucked dry until the beings that were once humans, But are human no more stare blankness into the glass wall.  

She comes at me like a starving beast Clipboard at the ready... I shiver.

Words I cannot understand, but lips that move.

They must mean something

I bow my head in frustration

The golden pigtails are talking at me.

I vow to escape, give up it was a farcical dream.. I shall never return, but my time is linear, and hers...?  Sigh.

 The room is colder now, it has been 3 hours I shall never see again and my soul is my will and my will is gone.

Behind the white door she has taken my life. All that I was..that I AM still, perhaps,  behind the white door. Yes it is my life. I need it back. 

Along the walls clones stare blankly at no one, machines glued to their hip eyes glued to themselves

They smile and a room filled with people shudders with delight.

I tap my finger, and scowl, but it doesn’t help.

I shouldn’t be here, the fault is within names, not mine are called to their fate.   

And still....I wait.........A Clone, not my own golden pigtails doth come with a silver flash as she handed me back my life

“Sorry but it can’t be fixed. The battery is irreplaceable”

I feel nothing, I paid nothing. I owe... nothing

I lose 80 GB of all that I love, for nothing. Screw you Apple.

Horror, thy name is Future shock.....Will I take a 160 GB NEW version of the same model for $60?

Hell yes!

Samuel Garbett: I love the style.I love the setting.I love the atmosphere.You've tapped into something fantastic here, from the clearly invested-in characters down to the language used to portray the genre perfectly.I'd consider myself hooked.

Truemy Brewer: Great first chapter! You tell the story dramatically, but not overly and with just the right amount of words.. There is no cut in the action. I do wonder at the ladies male friend from the village, and what happened to him, but I suppose that will be revealed later. This seems like an epic in the...

internathunal: I was held captive by your sense of style. I would love to see more from you. I enjoyed this immensely.

Chris Rolfe: BOY!!! I sure love what Aer-Ki Jyr did with this series. IMHO he captured the essence of what stargate is all about. Thru out the Stargate stories Aer-Ki wrote Stevens and John Shepard some of the main characters in his stories are pursued by a corrupt I.O.A.. All the while Stevens is changing in...

Angel S. Adames Corraliza: Sensational! As a fan of superheroes, I have to say, you have a real winner of a story so far. I like that you made Allison a Wonder Woman expy, but kept her likable and relate-able in this first chapter. You showed us the Mother while also glancing at the Superhero, which I think is important to...

_JosephJacobson_: I don't understand why this has such low ratings. I really enjoyed it!I think that the whole idea behind the plot had something very special and that was something that I really enjoyed. It was new, unique. I think that some of the writing was a little strange in places but overall it made sense ...

Raymond Keith Moon: Great story arc. Nice command of the balance of overview and detail. Feels a bit like a multi-player computer game, but provides satisfying explanations for all the apparent magic. Please keep writing!

Ben Gauger: Kudos go to wordworrywill, author of Kings and Things, an otherwise imaginative tale set against the trappings of the royal set, but then again I don't imagine there'd be many authors who invoked the names of Oprah Winfrey, Vladimir Putin, Jeff Bezos, Beyonce and Steven Spielberg, As for the plot...

AlexaDria: Well I'll be darned! I don't remember the last time I enjoyed a story/novel/book/thing that much! I enjoyed it so much that I finished it in a little over 10 hours... oops! I honestly can't wait to find and read the next one! I want more!!!

John Smith: This is what Sci Fi is all about. Reads like early Heinlein. In the style of Space Cadets. No esoteric problems..but good ol blaster and space action with a host of relatable characters

hypaalicious: This story follows two main characters, Zoey and Derek, on a winding adventure that sucks you in from the beginning. It was easy to get into and get a feel for the world that the author is projecting, as well as all of the warring factions and difference of ideals that would otherwise be very co...

Meri Amber: The plot is creative, fun and addictive! The writing is superb and the characters are really well put together. Definitely highly recommeded!

Michael L. Blood: It took only a few paragraphs to "hook me" and keep me riveted throughout the remainder of the story. I have read very little if any "short stories" since "Dandelion Wine" and my freshman year in college in the early 70s - this one measures up with the best of them. The author assumes some de...

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors.
