I’ve been sidetracked from writing these last few weeks with a few projects and lots of research too. Learned some super cool new things!
On the subject of new things, there have been a lot of new announcements lately about warp drives being a distinct possibility now in the news. Score one for sci-fi! 😀Short Story!
Alright, good news. (Read on to see it.)
Chapter Twenty-Two – Part Four
West of Paradise, Galatia
“Where’s Meghan?” Gideon grunts as he slowly wakes back up.
“I don’t know,” Sylvia whispers, Gideon can tell that she didn’t like being unable to hunt her down.
Rolling onto his side, Gideon looks at Sylvia and he lets his mind wander a bit. As he does so, he momentarily wonders if he ever would have met Sylvia if none of this had happened. If he had, would they have even spoken as much as they had now?
“I’m worried about her,” Sylvia sighs.
Gideon scans Sylvia’s face for a moment and he notes the sorrow in her eyes. Before he can have the change to think or say anything, he becomes fixated on Sylvia’s eyes. In the flickering firelight her eyes looked fierce. She looked like a predator ready to kill.
Realizing that he was drifting off again, Gideon clamps his eyes shut and he takes an unsteady breath. Groaning, he rolls back onto his back and stares up.
Looking up, Gideon finally realizes that he is inside the complex once more. Admittedly, it took him several moments to realize that the reason he couldn’t see the stars was because he was inside.
“Gideon?” Sylvia beckons.
“Yeah,” Gideon answers. He pauses a moment before he realizes that his jaw wasn’t nearly as tender anymore, which he took as a good sign.
“Yeah,” Gideon nods softly. He resists the initial urge to say that they wouldn’t be in this situation if it wasn’t for Sylvia’s running off. It was anything but the right time to say something like that—not with Meghan still MIA.
“What should we do?”
“I think I have a flare in my pack,”
“We could signal for help from the others. If we’re lucky, they’ll come for us.”
“I can’t go any further like this,” Gideon admits as he gently stretches. He winces as his limbs spasm in protest and begin throbbing.
“What if we wait until tomorrow morning?”
“I can’t make any promises. I don’t know if it would be smart to head out on our own either.”
“I… I guess you’re right.”
“We should rest up for tomorrow morning,” Gideon breathes, “Thanks for dragging me in here, I owe you one.”
“Yeah,” Sylvia whispers. She lays down on her side and Gideon can see her watching him out of the corner of his eye. A moment passes before Sylvia says, “Thanks for everything.”
Before Gideon can ask her what she was thanking him for, he hears Sylvia’s slow breathing and he reasons that she had fallen asleep. A few moments pass before he succumbs to the same fate.
Gideon’s still alive! That’s my good news. 🙂
