|He came out of the darkness just as had always come. He was dressed in black pants and a long sleeved white shirt. A black cape swirled about him as he walked. He wore a large gun at his hip. Although he had little use for it. He controlled all things wit|
OUT OF THE DARKNESS Chapter One He came to her the first time when she was only one. He picked her up from her crib and carried her out into the darkness. She went with him willingly having no fear of the stranger. Her little hands played in the thick softness of his long hair. He took her to his ship. They ran several tests on her but she felt no pain. In between tests she toddled about the ship getting into mischief. At one point setting off an alarm that scared her. She started to cry. The stranger picked her up soothing her. He returned her to her crib at dawn. Her parent's were still asleep as he had commanded. He placed a barrier in her mind that would keep her from remembering him. He gently stroked her soft head. She had blonde curls and green eyes. She smiled at him. She watched from the crib rail as he disappeared. He came to her again when she was five. He removed the barrier in her mind so that she would remember him and not be afraid. He was tall with black hair that fell past his shoulders. His eyes were a deep blue as he leaned over to scoop her up. She went into his arms readily. She was dressed in a cotton nightgown with a teddy bear on it. Once again he commanded her parents to sleep. She had a sister now he noted. But a click scan showed she was not compatible. He carried the little girl off with him. He ran more tests on her. “What's your name?” She asked him as he ran a scanner over her. “Trian. What's yours?” He replied. “Sierra. I'm five.” She told him. “How old are you?” “One thousand years.” “You're old.” She told him. “Do you think so?” He asked with a smile as he studied the scans. She was developing well. “What's that?” She asked when he picked up an instrument from a tray and started to place it against her arm. “It's an ejection. It will help keep you healthy.” He told her. “I don't like shot! They hurt!” She told him shaking her head. “This won't hurt, I promise.” He assured her. “You will accept the injection.” His voice commanded. Their was no way to fight the compulsion in his voice. He quickly gave her the injection that was painless. He injected her with several things. Her genetic code needed to be further altered. But the process would be done slowly. They needed to monitor any ill effects. He would watch over her for a month to make sure she was able to tolerate the treatments. He came to her every night for a week. They played games and talked. She explored his ship learning more about his kind. She was full of questions. She especially loved his wolf. She didn't realize the wolf was a robot. It would not be fair to a real wolf to lock it on a ship.So the wolf robots had been created to act as companions to his people who traveled through space. They were close to their wolf brothers on his home planet. “Why do you have to leave?” She cried when he told her he would be leaving. “I must return to my home.” He told her wiping her tears away. “But I will return.” “”I'll miss you.”She said hugging him around the neck. “Go to sleep little one. When you wake you will have no memory of me.” He commanded. He carried the sleeping child back to her bed. Tucking the covers about her he disappeared into the night. “He returned to her again when she was ten. She was developing well. No Click here to read the rest of this story (308 more lines)
