Excerpt from my debut novel Out of the Great Black Nothing, for the April A-Z Challenge.
I will post excerpts from various writings daily.
What did you do to me? Percy said to Anna Marie. He thought the words and she heard them, even as they both fed on their living mother.
I gave you life, Anna Marie thought back to him.
I had life. I had happiness. I was fine living in the moon's shadow.
You were alone, Anna Marie said.
And what does that matter, being alone? I am Gamjen the Watcher. All I need are the stars.
You'll forget about all that.
Forget about the stars? Never.
I mean you'll forget about who you are. That's part of it. You are Percy Freebottom, now. You forget everything when you come down. You remember it now, but soon you'll un-learn it all, and learn to speak like they do, with their mouths and faces.
LEAVE YOUR MARK! Put an X in the comments, if you have nothing more to say.
