Something was going on. I was awake more now. The Embrosis seemed to be losing its hold on me. Her face. It was always her face I woke up to. We were going to be married. The big party when we announced we would marry. Happiness.

The man had come. He made an offer I couldn’t refuse. One year of service and we would be set for life. We could open the flower shop she longed for. The Empress loved flowers and we would provide them.

It was all gone. Looking at my skin, I knew I was an old man now. My skin wasn’t even green anymore. The Embrosis had changed me. I wondered what I was now. Was I even a Grell any longer? I want to fight, but there is no one to fight.

Everything was lost to me now. My home. My people. My love. All gone. There was nothing left for me. What was the use of going on?

I could feel it. It was taking a hold of me again. I didn’t fight it this time. What was the use?

I pulled my desk to me. Picked up my pen and started to write.

 

The following two tabs change content below.
I was born into a large Italian family in a small town in Central Florida. Everything I have done or will ever do is for my family. I love science fiction and have spent the better part of 35 years reading it every chance I get. I have also written since I was young, so a few years ago I decided to write the Great American Novel. It still sitting in one of my files because science fiction is so much more fun to write. My books tend toward dystopian science fiction with a strong survival element. How that came about I don't know because my idea of survival is ordering room service. A portion of all the proceeds from the sales of my books goes to The Ronald McDonald House and the American Cancer Society.
