Taidan for fear

I think my upstairs neighbor is dead. There is a pungent smell seeping through the decayed seal between our compartments. It could have just been an animal stuck between my ceiling and her floor. Although the only things I could imagine getting in there would be a pigeon or seagull but I’ve never seen a […]

Leesandra 19

The black patch of space that Leesandra couldn’t make out started to contort, although it seemed more like the ship she was on was actually what was moving. Part of it suddenly lit up and she could finally make out some of it. It was a ship, a gigantic ship, almost as big as Alpha-Hydra’s […]

Merah and Bronwyn pulled Leesandra to her feet once her limbs had repaired. She followed them through the ship to the bridge. It was up a flight of stairs and not even a minutes walk away from the cargo bay. “So what did you mean by ‘it isn’t true’?” Leesandra asked as Bronwyn sat down […]

Leesandra 17

Harold’s office was right next to the external bulkheads of one of the ending rotational rings. There was some redundant maintenance space between his office wall and the actual external panels, so the floor to ceiling windows behind his desk didn’t display outside. Instead a simulation of late twentieth-century New York city. Not that he […]

“Should my legs tingle like this?” Leesandra asked looking up at Merah and the new woman. “You were out there a while, you’re probably healing. Or they’re about to…” “Fall off?” Leesandra cut her off.   “I already made the joke sorry.” said Merah apologetically “Damn it.” She shook her fist at Merah jokingly. “I […]

“I don’t know.” Leesandra whispered with half a breath. “You don’t have to answer right away, let your air reserves fill back up.” “I think I’m okay now.” She tried get to her feet, she couldn’t even get to her knees. “You were out there a long time, I wouldn’t be surprised if some parts […]

Suddenly, a feeling passed over her, like a cold shiver. Her physiology would normally keep her warm even in the harshness of space. ‘Have I started to run out of oxygen?’ Her terror asked itself. ‘If I have CRC then i’ll probably have a larger oxygen capacity than I first thought.’   Darkness started to […]

It’s a short one this week, I’ve not slept well the last two days. ‘Okay so, I have reaction control. Why do would I have this? Kybers surely wouldn’t naturally have this? Or do they?’ Leesandra hovered in space staring at the tube protruding from her forearm.   ‘First things first, reduce momentum.’ With that […]

Leesandra’s heart smashed at her chest, blood splashed around in her head, that was all she could hear. She had closed her eyes once she was unable to grab hold of anything on her way out. She was trying to stop the vacuum of space from popping her eyes.   As much as she had […]

Leesandra remained hidden behind the shipping container. She wasn’t sure what else to do, CAL must have still been trying to get a dock superior to make their way in. She could probably just go back to the viewing platform, report the unauthorised access. At the same time she knew that if these people weren’t […]
