The Shrouded - Chapter 10Stewart and Georgie had spent the morning driving through town checking on the contacts suggested by Anton. A brief interview at city hall hadn't brought much of anything they didn't already know or included in Anton's reports. He had graciously offered them a copy of his findings that would be of interest to them along with addresses to people they may want to talk with for their investigation. So far most people reported various shakes all around town and the surrounding farm lands, people assumed it was all seismic activity and were wondering why Doctor Fisher was asking so many questions they'd already answered. And no they sure hadn't seen anything out of the ordinary either. Undeterred Stewart had driven out of town heading towards farms that had been hit the hardest. They stopped by the Mcgreal's and were welcomed by a cheerful couple in their fifties. They explained the phenomenon of the recent tremors and how they had increased in frequency and strength in the last coupl
The Shrouded - Chapter 9She was floating among yellow flowers in a large field simply taking in the view, the horizon, the colors and the movement of the wind through it all. She basked in the seeming eternity of it though she knew nothing was truly eternal. Long ago her people had escaped a dying solar system, a dying planet. The most skilled Travelers had opened great tunnels through time and space allowing the Elymdar to pass through leading them in search of a new habitable system.

Ilutia had never seen the Universe as her ancestors had but their flow of memories were passed on from one generation to the next and she did have the remaining impression of what it had been like. Like having a dream that fades somewhat but that you can still recall. No nothing was eternal but the Earth still had a long time to exist and humanity was developing, growing, struggling through their evolution
The Shrouded - Chapter 8Sitting in the small diner by the road side with an overly chipper and far too talkative Georgie, Stewart breaks his buttered toast and dips it in the smeared yellow egg yoke on his plate trying to keep his attention on most of what Georgie was saying. Something about secret government conspiracies and aliens, what a surprise. "You just know they've got whole space ships in underground bunkers right? Area 51 we all know has to be for real, that's why they make all those Hollywood movies about it, that's the media trying to say: Hey guess what? This is happening, wake up people..." Georgie stops for a rare minute and swallows some pancake followed by a huge gulp of orange juice while looking out the window. They'd driven for eight hours the previous day from Bay City to the little town of Moon Creek situated right in the middle of the highway. It had a comfy motel with an adjacent diner which served some very decent egg and bacon. Stewart mentally marked the town for future
