They have ships with souls

what am I to do

Here am I what do I do, I now have to face the rest of my life without you. Lost and forgotten on Io’s plains tired and fearful forced to face my fate again.

Jayden  reminded me that I can no longer hide the  gift of sight I am duty bound to save my race from it’s yet unknown plight.

I do not want this heavy burden I do not want to carry the extra weight. I preferred my life with Lars, I was hidden, safe my happiness on a plate. But no more to feel his burning touch now he is dead,  fear sized me it was just too much.

When a child still, the first dreams came of how the machines would come and invade man’s domain. The huge space ships  that had  thinking souls that came by night and devoured planets whole! They showed no mercy, man woman or child if they stood in the machine’s path they would be left on the ground a corpse sucked dry and left cold.

They told me, the old one’s, that I thought too much and that it was unworldly to talk of such. Then Lars came into my life, he understood my dreams he did not shun away he took me for his wife. He understood from what I said, that he had taken on my path and he would walk with me until he was dead.

We stood together out on the Rim  he helped to hide my secret gift of sight from kit and kin. He recruited a  fleet of ships and men, on my word,  for I foresaw the armada of ships upon their way our planets to lay waist and us to slay.

the ships with souls

We kept watch both day and night our fleet was ready at moments notice to take flight.

And so tonight in Jayden’s room I sit and share a beer she is my best friend but she is not Lars I fear. In my minds eye I see the ships amassing beyond the Rim and I know I must convince Lars’es  men I can lead as well as him.
