Arrat - The Myth of the Amazons Chapter 4

Chapter 4

Although I was left to my own devices, I could never be bored. Once you have the Interface installed there are always things to do. I had been given a basic tutorial which meant I knew how to unlock doors, go to the bathroom, switch on lights and, more importantly, look up how to do other things. There was an endless amount of education that was available for free and a bewildering amount of stuff that you had to pay for.

We left then to return to the house. On the way we persuaded Katharina to go to New York and come back with Maureen and ThreeB for the picnic. She was a bit unsure about going and meeting people she did not know, but I calmed her by telling her, that she would talk to Maureen on the phone beforehand. Now it was time to have a serious chat with Esme. I did not like her plotting at all in this instance. Maybe Grishka was ready in her opinion, but for one I disagreed. And Katharina certainly wasn’t. Angela just looked at me and grinned.
“Oh, my love, I am really going to enjoy what will happen now.”
I just grinned.
“What do you think will happen now?” Katharina asked her.
“I think, for the fist time in her life, the mighty Esmeralda will get to be seriously told off.” Angela giggled.

I smiled at her. “Periods? Babies? Monthlies? I’m not going to have any of that.” I laughed.

“Oh, no?” she asked. “And why is that?”

“Because I’m a man!” I told her.

“Are you?” she retorted.

There was a knock on the interview room door. Felix got up and checked it, then turned to me. “There have been some developments.” He looked at Kate. “Can you look after Alex, I will be back in shortly.”

Kate looked at me a bit embarrassed, trying to think of something to say. “Did you see Misha again. I got the impression that you liked each other.”

What we would call hate crimes are punishable by death and just about the entire LGBT community has gone over to his folk. The frightening thing is they have a much higher proportion of educated and skilled folk than the public at large and have become loyal to his cause simply because the Celts offered them security and safety. God help us, but some of our senior civil servants regard the LGBT leaving as a good thing because, and I quote, ‘We won’t have to deal with them.’

The mouse scratched at the walls of the small Plexiglas box it found itself in. It didn’t seem to notice when the lights in the room dimmed or when a robotic arm with a laser scanner descended from the ceiling and bathed it in a red wave of flickering light. A slight electrical hum filled the room. Moments later a shining object looking rather like a giant sparkplug lowered itself over the mouse.

A slightly hollow sounding female robotic voice echoed throughout the room. “Sequence initiation in three, two, one. Initializing.”

“Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the CEO of Future Global, Malcom Sanders.”

The lights in the conference hall dimmed and a spotlight appeared on a man dressed in jeans, tennis shoes, and a Hawaiian aloha shirt as he walked across the stage. After an initial robust round of applause the attendees fell silent. Malcom Sanders was the latest Silicon Valley technology wizard that had quickly established himself far above his competitors in recent years. His appearances were rare but always accompanied by life and market altering innovations.

Arrat - The Myth of the Amazons Chapter 3

Chapter 3

I woke up on a bed, naked with no sheet covering me and what I saw sent me into an immediate deep depression. I wouldn't say my body looked particularly feminine. I didn't have any breasts to block my view which I had been told previously but was still a nagging concern. I didn't see any exaggerated curves and all my excess fat was gone, which was good, but it gave me a clear view of my privates.

Chapter 26

My mission was accomplished and I had reached a key level of 130 which meant I could transform into a dragon. It also gave me some ideas of how I could have a more normal life on Earth 2.0. I could defeat a human looking monster, absorb its spirit form and be able to transform into its shape. I presume I could take a male form if I wanted.

Chapter 25

Misha looked up at me after she had gathered herself. “Wow. What's next?” she asked me.

I really didn't know how much of that she had seen. When I had died I went straight to my white room. Putting my wands away had given me time to calm down and come to an uncomfortable conclusion.

“We may have to resurrect Peter the Asshole.”

“Careful what you say, he may be watching us, and why would we need to resurrect him?”

“I thought when you died you went straight to the character creation room.”

“You could be worse off,” MacGregor would say, and he’d gesture at me. “You could be turning into a wee lassie, like our friend Henry here.”

“I’m not turning into a girl!” I replied in an irritated tone.

My Digital Life Chapter 24

Chapter 24

I stood in front of the Indore city portal feeling a little anxious. I started watching it from late morning, but I was having trouble calming my mind. Peter was due to meet Misha at midday. Midday in Indore was at a different time to midday in Brisbane or wherever Peter was hiding himself. It's not that difficult to work out, but it leaves a possible confusion which meant my mind stressed and would continue to do so, despite telling myself that everything would work out, until I could see them both before me.

Arrat - The Myth of the Amazons Prologue, Chapter 1 & 2

Prologue

I have been asked to write my story and I have done my best to do so. Others have added their points of view as they wanted to explain their actions when I either didn't care for the reasons or was kept in blissful ignorance.

From an Earth point of view my life has become very strange and not what most people would want or enjoy. Despite all that has happened to me, I can now say that I am content and I know that there will be a small portion of the Earth population that would like to be where I am. This book is for them.

I was feeling flustered and uncomfortable. I felt an urge to flee, but walking wouldn't get me to India very quickly. I returned to the portal and the oak tree that was nearby. I climbed high enough that I didn't think I would be disturbed and cast Scry.

It was a rather subdued Grishka, who returned from the walk on his own. Sasha greeted him back and looked into his eyes then said:
“You feel rejected, because Mamushka and Angela spent the night without you?”
“Yes.”

Chapter Seven

The conference had started, and, everyone got to know everyone else. There were representatives from the Arachnians, the Dixx, and, of course, the Elyrans. Humanity's newest friends, the bear cub-like Telcontari, had also sent representatives, as well as the Daemons, the ones that look like lions with their long, thick manes, but what was not expected were the people of Star-453 sending representatives. These particular aliens were considered the most technologically advanced race in the Federation - all their citizens were completely cyberneticized at birth, and all that everyone sees are their roboticized outer shells. If people didn't know any better, they'd probably assume these were actually sentient robots.

And, of course, there were the Humans.

The conference was all about the discovery that the Earthers made - that, apparently, Phase-Wave wasn't as never-ending as they thought, that there was an actual border to it. And, at the border where Phase-Wave ended and the unknown part of the galaxy started, the Fifth Fleet's Explorer-Class DSC Earthship II, and their most advanced Type-One ship, DSC Mikasa, discovered a new planetary system.

The new system was weird, to say the least, but what was discovered on one of its planets held the promise of new knowledge and something that was indeed world-shaking.

WARNING: I know many of you have bad memories that certain scenes incolving violence and/or sexual assault may trigger and this part contains such a scene and I did not want to depend on a simple caution in the header as 16 parts into story it is likely they are not looked at any longer. What takes place is integral to the story unfortunately and I understand if you choose not to read it or what follows after. If so I thank you for reading to this point.

The Hunter, Becomes The Hunted Part 3 (updated)

The plane that they caught in London, England took them to Netaji Subhas Chandra Airport. Then they had to unload everything and reload it on the train they had to take to Katwa. By the time they arrived in Katwa, it was late in the evening. Tammy looked at everything they had and didn’t like the fact they had to leave it in a warehouse that Helping Hands had rented.

“Jerry, you and I are going to guard our equipment tonight. Why don’t the rest of you get some sleep?” Tammy looks at everyone as they stood nearby.

My Digital Life Chapter 22

Chapter 22

I knew when Misha approached from the way she walked. I had passed some catgirls, but I am guessing that they were originally human. Catgirls have a tail and seeing one walking is clearly different from a human woman walking. It creates a slight swagger which could also be called an exaggerated sexy bum wiggle. The other catgirls I had seen had made me notice. Misha had me spellbound.

Her movements were fluid and predatory like she was on the hunt rather than just heading towards a destination. She stalked towards Aasha with an intensity that made me shiver.

“Yeah, I know,” she said. “It’s a long story.”

He considered a moment, then spread his hands and shook his head. “Okay. Cool. It’s none of my business. We’ve had our fun, we’ve killed some bad guys. We’ve had some good, sweaty, wholesome sex. You’re the most beautiful and amazing woman I’ve ever met, and probably ever will meet. And now, whoever you are, wherever you come from, it’s time for you to go.”

Forsythe Saga - Prologue

Forsythe Saga – Prologue

The story begins in late 2008, at the time of the Banking crisis. Leman Brothers had gone belly up and the financial world was in meltdown.
It is the AGM of a family owned company, Forsythe Brothers. It was being held at the family home that could have come straight from the time of Cadfael. The ancient stone building is even on the outskirts of Shrewsbury close to the River Severn.

Present at the meeting were the four siblings, David, Stephanie, Dorothy and Adrian, that owned the company and the company secretary, a cousin of the family. It is a family owned company after all...

As usual, the main topic for discussion was about the lack of profitability of the business. Adrian as Chairman was addressing the meeting.

“As you all know, Dad put me in control of the company and yet you all seem to think that I’m unconcerned about the profits that the business is generating.”

The two of them sat there considering their options. The important thing to Jackie was whatever they decided to do, they were doing it together.

"As I see it I really don't have any choice but to play out Cindy's game until I can either figure it out or get my CPA recertification and look for another job."

The evening had been a quiet one, all of us more or less exhausted or lost in our own thoughts, but it had nevertheless been a companionable silence. I had had to convince Grishka of the necessity to keep out of the filming with a compromise. We would go together, Grishka, Sasha and I, an hour before meeting Constantin, by which time Sasha and he would be gone and they would keep to Sasha’s bedroom, while the interview was going on. Biggi, on the other hand I wanted to be home to greet Angela and myself as a token to the truth. She had no problem with that, as it was free advertising for her shop. We would keep quiet about the picnic, though.

Marti and the Doppelganger – A Follow Up, or What Happened to Those Raccoons, Anyway, Chapter 5

By Portia Bennett

 
Introduction: This story is the third, the penultimate, in a series within a series. The overall series is the “Cynthia Chronicles”. This story is directly connected to “Simoné and the Second Time Around” and “Marti and the Doppelganger”. The latter left many unanswered questions. Some of those will be answered, some probably not. There are many references to previous stories in the series. If you are confused by some of them, just put it off to my senility. The Cynthia Chronicles takes place in a universe very similar to ours. Unfortunately, it might be too similar.

For any who read “Myrna and the Genetic Disaster”, this is the same story, only with the political rantings and scientific explanations removed. There may also have been a few edits and additions.

This is the fifth part of ten.

The girls from summer camp are going to get together at Rhonda’s home in Chico, California. The subject comes up about Wanda and Tamesha perhaps wanting some private time. It is not a problem.

Jackie was nearly in tears when they reached the car but they were tears of anger. She turned on Sandy.

"My life is in the crapper and it's all your fault!"

Sandy was surprised by the pure vitriol in that statement. Up to now Jackie had pretty much blamed herself but this was Jack speaking not her.

This is the story of the country's first transsexual president, and her struggle to be accepted by her people. It wasn't something she sought out, but now that she was in the White House, she had to do her best for the country, though it was hard going when one was transgender, not to mention a transsexual, and many were still not accepting even if it was the middle of the 21st century already.

Chapter Six

The plot that was behind the attack was slowly being unraveled, and it was revealed that it was a Dravidian plot, with an unwitting Detterex citizen as their instrument to carry out their plan.

Not too much detail of the plan has been uncovered yet but any betting person will say it was most probably another one of Cor's conspiracies.

Ever since the "Earthers" so noisily burst upon the scene, Cor, Dravidia's then-ambassador to the Federation, rubbed the newcomers the wrong way from the beginning, especially then-Captain Amelia Steele. No one could blame the Earthers, though, especially with the high-handed, patronizing, and condescending way that Dravidians treated everyone. The only advantage that everyone else had over the Earthers was that they were used to Dravidians and just let them be. But Mia didn't stand for it, and put them, especially Cor, in their place. Which began Cor's slow downfall from grace.

And ever since, Cor has been trying to undermine the Earthers at every turn. But this was the first time that Cor had actually tried this kind of thing. Could it be the precursor to war? Who knew?

Once in the office Jackie's heartbeat slowly returned to a more normal pace. Tess looked glad to see them as she handed the headset back to Joy and returned to her desk.

Joy pulled a second headset out of her desk and handed it to her after making sure it was working. Now she could listen in as Joy handled incoming calls, hearing both the client and her.

Strange Kind of Woman - Part 2 of 2

Being my own boss has both advantages and disadvantages. One of the former, is that if I’m on top of work, I could head off into the country for a long weekend whenever I felt like it. As I already lived in the county I’ve had more than a few questions along the line of ‘why I’d want to go into the country as I was already there’. It takes all sorts to make this world we live in.

That was true but… I was less than thirty miles from central London. Then the roads around my part of Surrey get pretty clogged up at weekends with cyclists. That isn’t bad but the ‘townies’ who come down from London at weekends in their monster Chelsea Tractors seem to think that the roads should be reserved for them and them only. This is not my idea of tranquillity. Ergo, I need somewhere that is deep in the country to relax and be myself.

"Hints and rumors," said Aaron, with an aggravated sigh. "Freeze Frame hasn't helped much; he can't find the Emergent any more than we can. After several subjective years of effort he left a note on my desk this morning that he was moving on to other pursuits."

"Wait," said Blackpool, alarmed. "He was here?! In the compound?!"

"At my office in Haven, actually," said Aaron, a bit amused at this near panic. "I don't think he knows where the redoubt is. Though he could probably find it given sufficient motivation."

Joy led the way to her car. Jackie wondered how she managed to fit her very large belly behind the steering wheel. She must of been a contortionist in a previous life. In just minutes she pulled up to a small deli. Jackie opened her eyes when she heard the engine shut off. Joy, the woman with the sweet and bubbly personality turned into Dale Earnhardt, the Intimidator, on the road.

"Hurry up. I have to use the bathroom."
