Mother – Stories of the Raven Queen
By J. Lynne Moore
Waking from cryo-stasis BrayLynn Masters was disoriented and felt sick. As reality came into focus, his mind cleared and he began to remember his mission. BrayLynn slowly climbed out of the cryo-tube and headed for the recovery kit. As the recovery cocktail entered his veins his body began to burn, his heart raced, his mind was on fine. His last conscious thought was…
“This is not right, I’m dying…”
BrayLynn could hear nothing, see nothing, he couldn’t move, but…he realized he was hungry…not hungry…ravenous…it was overwhelming.
“What is happening?!?”
Finally, BrayLynn heard a sickly sweet voice.
“Get up child, you are born anew.”
Suddenly able to open his eyes, he was shocked to see before him, sat an old woman, or was she…. her silver hair was turning raven black and her wrinkled skin was giving way to porcelain. This made no sense, he was alone on the ship.
She came close… almost hovering over him…
Before he knew what he was doing BrayLynn grabbed the woman and sunk his teeth, viciously into her neck.
“Yes my child drink deep, I am now your…Mother.”
