The edge of Enternity , on Io

The Edge of Eternity

Here on the edge of eternity on tomorrows shore. I stand alone and deserted as I have many times before.

He was shot down here on Io at this very place where I stand. I had hired a recovery team I needed to find my man.

The ship was nought but wreckage and his bones had long turned to dust . It took too long too find him but to do so was a must.

I swore that I would find and reclaim his service pin, I did, I found it covered in dust…….. covered in him. I did not want to come here but it was written that I would for I have a job to do and so to save my race I must do it good.

The night was long on Saturn where I sat out on the Rim. It was there I first felt my powers. I saw the ships fighting off Io, one exploded and I knew that it was him.

My powers had been hidden but I had a special path to take. I would gladly forgo all this, his loving hand to take. But all that is denied me as I hold his service pin I am alone here on the edge of eternity, alone without him.

I had found a ship quite cheaply a vintage Stella 5 I had manage to drag a crew together mostly old timers but they had the will to stay alive. People laughed as we took off for Io as we left Orion’s outer Rim but my crew have not abused me as I had told them how important was my search for him!

I have to start my quest

Now my fate is sealed I know the course to take, it all depends on me now and the choices I now make.

    Willowdot, I am started to get really freaked out at how you and are operate on so many shared wavelengths: I have a longterm SF novel in the oven called “Rednecks in the Next Galaxy”! I love this space series here, and the way you combine it with details from ancient mythologies. After all, we know time is in a warp, right?
