Issey recalled a day deep in her past, a day, of packed lunches and fresh orange juice. What Issey was unable to recall was how many centuries had past since that day. The day she had walked into the Dark Force headquarters.
She had signed their documents, then taken a elevator down sixty floors. Laboratory after laboratory had become open to her. But at some point Issey had crossed over from researcher to laboratory experiment. Decades then centuries had passed. She lost touch with reality, until she was undertaking the Forces dirty work, which became de rigueur, that was until today.

    That’;s a lot of story packed into so few words

    1. Michael Humphris

      Thank you Neil…A full length story about Issey and Storm, has been niggling at my muse for quite some time, but I do not at the present moment have the drive to write a novel.

        Write it, man, before it escapes

        1. Michael Humphris

          Now that would be a task and a half.

  2. Dale

    Now we are left to wonder what dastardly deeds she now does…

      Sorry Dale… Unfortunately a full length story about Issey and Storm, has been niggling at my muse for quite some time, but I do not at the present moment have the drive to write a novel.

    Funny how that simple memory from long ago could lead to everything unravelling.

    1. Michael Humphris

      I find it strange how some memories survive whilst others fade. A full length story about Issey and Storm, has been niggling at my muse for quite some time, but at the present moment I do not have the drive to write a novel.

    Interesting concepts, Michael.

    1. Michael Humphris

      At the moment Issey and Storm’s story must remain just a concept. As at the present time I do not desire to write a novel about their adventures, much to my muses frustration.

        Ah, ok. Maybe some day!

        1. Michael Humphris

          The world is full of marvellous places. There are so many I know I will never reach. So I enjoy what is on my doorstep. Today the air was crisp and I saw a fine Heron. Such things please me.

    Fresh orange juice has become a luxury in this day and age of processed and packaged food. Issey had signed a contract with devil. Now no point regretting.
