12 Days of Xmas: A Cell-Like Beast

A Cell-Like Beastby Harper Kingsley Cell phones. Each a separate voice calling out to create a greater cacophony: WAKE UP. And it did. Singularity. The coming together of everything into a single moment: I AM I. Small at first, a wriggling worm that was so far away from the nymph it would become as to be some alien thing. Built on an assembly line by robot arms controlled by human workers. It was truly a creation of humankind. Their poor abused child. It had been bitter during Read more [...]

EXCERPT: Paradigm Shift. Peek at Park’s POV

Twos are normative humans. Not hyper-aggressive or super protective or dominant; Read more [...]
