I asked my husband what he wanted for dinner tonight. Simple question. Told him we had chicken, breast or whole – I could do roasted or pan seared chicken. Told him we had ground beef – spaghetti or I could do salsbury steak. Told him we had pork chops, I could make him …’pork chops’. We even have smoked sausage with which I could do some red/black beans and rice with. You know what he said?

I’m still having a hard time with this story. It has been modified and transfigured and I really don’t know how else to deal with it. I need new eyes to take a gander at it. Is it really High Fantasy? Regardless, I’m still working on the sequel to it. Go check it out and let me know what you think.
Last chance to read my sci-fi ‘Mostly Human’ before final edits and then on to being published! https://writeon.amazon.com/…/amzn1.ignite.story.07b450ed5e1…
My husband and I finally got a chance to simply sit and watch a movie together! Of course it took about an hour and a half to actually agree on the movie we both wanted. But we got it together before too late. We down loaded ‘Dracula Untold’. I hadn’t realized that it had been rated pg13. wow. It was still good though.It wasn’t as predictable as I thought it was going to be with my knowledge of ‘Vlad the Impaler’.
It was pretty good, my hubby didn’t seem too impressed with it. Watched it all the way through. I did enjoy it, but it’s not a movie I would purchase to add to my collection. The way it ended was like there’s supposed to be another or the story wasn’t over. I will more than likely go and see the second if there is one.
My GoodReads giveaway is almost at its end! Did you put in your entry? If not hurry up! Can’t win if you don’t enter!
The year: 4038AD
Earth is a wasteland except for a few derelict societies and Federation owned sites.
FORILLIAN RULE : ESTABLISHED 3105AD
In 3050AD, humans secured a fully operational Faster Than Light (FTL) system: The Space Vault. 50 years later the humans were enslaved by an invading race called the Forillians, who were looking for a new home. Strict but gentle masters, many humans chose to serve them. After 300 years Forillians freed the humans allowing them to join their society, partly due to the works of one man, Arthur Richards. Richards created a supplement that allowed Forillians to live 30 more years longer than their previous average lifespan of 60 human years. With this, Arthur Richards became the first human Forillian council member. This marked the true beginning of the unification of Humans and Forillians.
THE SPACE PROGRAM : 3525AD/F420
Around 3500AD/F395, the people of earth, Forillian and Human, began to look at the stars again. After the Forillian invasion The Space Vault was closed. Now this new generation looked to open it again. They believed that with the combination of Forillian and Human technology, they could protect themselves from any invading beings. Now was the time to venture into space again.
THE APOLOGY: 3530AD/F425
The head of the Forillian council, Lorian X’a Ut (*X’a Ut: basically a title similar to Chairman) issued an apology to all humans on the planet. He apologized for the invasion and resulting enslavement. He believed that in order to move forward into space, Humans and Forillians needed to be united. At this time the population of the planet was over 32% Foruman.
THE FEDERATION, sectorOMEGA: 3650AD/F545
The need to vault to other galaxies became a basic necessity. The Earthlings branched out in their galaxy establishing settlements on other planets and moons in the Milkyway. In F565, the Mars settlement became the capital with the Earth being considered too dirty. The Mars settlement came to be known as the city of Orion, and it is where the 4 Galaxy Federation agreement was signed by Vraxius X’a Ut* in F572. From this point on the Milkyway was called Sector Omega, and the people there in, Omegas. In the Federation, there are 4 Sectors: sectorALPHA: most advanced military, technology, and education. Also, the oldest race. sectorSIGMA: highly advanced technology, no military strength, education unbalanced. sectorTHETA: moderate technology, strong military, slow focused education. sectorOMEGA: advanced technology, fearsomely large and strong military, education well balanced and focused.
THE MISTAKE: 4005AD/F900
SectorOMEGA prospered. The status of number 2 in the Federation came with many benefits and the Omegas enjoyed them. Although, with that status many people paid attention to you. The Majority of Omegas were wealthy and one such family was one of the wealthiest. The Richards family became one of the most influential families in sectorOMEGA. Arthur Richards’ descendants never wanted for anything and there were many in the four sectors that wanted a piece of that power. Sara L’xi Richards, the Foruman grand daughter of the current heir to the Richards empire was kidnapped in 4004AD/F899. She was rescued the next year in sectorTHETA and put on the first Vault ship back to sectorOMEGA. The Vault was designed initially for Human and Forillian physiology and was later modified for various races, but the Omegas overlooked one physiology. Foruman. Forumans had been vaulting safely for years but they were always healthy. Generally it was considered taboo to travel while sick, but it was never considered to be a problem in emergency situations. There had only been 3 cases where a sick being was sent through the vault: A Razian with a razul fever, a Fizzuor with Stullitus (very terrible flu like sickness found in sectorALPHA) and a Forillian with a cold. All vaults were successfully completed.
Sara L’xi had a cold.
When the vault ship arrived in sectorOMEGA there was only one transmission: 4005AD/F900:JANUA:42ND:22:32:14: “H..he…hello…”.
The ship was never seen or heard from again.
