Eternity’s Foundation: Chapter 9

This could not be a dream, Alan decided. It was too vivid. A yellow haze formed from centuries of pollution obscured the rising sun. Long abandoned cityscapes dotted the land, black corpses disintegrating with the rust and decay of time. Occasionally, remnants of the millions of satellites in orbit fell roaring down to the planet… Continue reading Eternity’s Foundation: Chapter 9

Eternity’s Foundation: Chapter 8

I looked down at the swirling maelstrom below me. The combat suit’s magnetic attachments kept me suspended in the dropship.

The hum of the voices continued as I gripped the cold steel plate… Continue reading Eternity’s Foundation: Chapter 5

Eternity’s Foundation: Chapter 4

“Mr. Drevin, set heading and prepare for gridjump,” Captain Atranas ordered from her command chair. The Yasothon slightly rumbled as the helmsmen steered the ship towards the nearby star’s tesseract. “Officer Sargire, you have command. I will be in the captain’s conference room.” The captain stood up, leaving an imposing figure. Nalia almost forgot she… Continue reading Eternity’s Foundation: Chapter 4

Eternity’s Foundation: Chapter 3

The knife clattered on the street’s permacrete surface. Blood seeped into the ground around him. Alan rushed to the woman’s side and attempted to close the wounds on her wrists. The rising sun reflected off her dull, listless eyes. He had not expected this. When she had run up to him and shouted at him… Continue reading Eternity’s Foundation: Chapter 3
