Last week I had created a new story to set my mind on something else and since I had more written than I posted, I would like to share that part with you as well. I just hope you enjoy my break away from the usual.
Space Pirate Drake Redwater! 2
A bar of light shines across my face, back and forth, up and down a second light passes me. It draws my attention towards its origin the small diamond shape hovering object in front of me. It stirred me a little when the lights flickered while air was being discharged in the back. The hedge was being unlocked and opening slowly.
With a deep breath held in my lungs I search for the air mask, disorientated as my eyes also search for the button to close the doors. In the stress I use up to much oxygen. My heartbeat has gone up by 20 beats a minute while the lungs suffocate on the little amount left.The explosive exhale cause a short shallow breathe inhaling short burst of a musky scented air.
On hand and knees I am on the floor and try to push my finger into the steel grid below me. My mind set on to die here and now like this. Though to my surprise it felt comfortable to breath. A satisfaction to feel my heart rate slow down and the tension form my fingers flow away as if never existed.
With a raised head I sit on my knees. The situation chaotically circles y mind as it tries to understand what just happened. “In the name of my father, thank you…”
-“No problem…” The voice sounded a little metallic, machine made “Glad to be of service…”
In front of me hovers that diamond shape, it turns its corners and shows what looks like an eye in one of its facets.It closes like the lens of a camera. Around its edges a bluish liquid seems to flow emitting a blue glow. “Are you talking to me?”
-“That I am Drake Redwater, son of my master Ryu Redwater. The premonition has been programmed into my system that one day I would meet you here.“
“Wait you knew my father…. he made you… what do you mean you knew… what are you?” My head has started to pound like a drum solo from one of the Octopus drummers, six legs at a time.
The small machine raises up as I stand back on my own to feet. “The name given is AURA and I am not sure what you mean, know him. He did create me and I do have stored files in my memory as well as programs that has his image…”
“I am capable of many things Drake Redwater, I can take over other systems run all maintenance of this entire facility, but in order to show, I would have to ask you to come with me to the projection room.”
The walk was winding through narrow corridors after the big hangar where I landed my ship and lots of airlock doors that opened and closed automatically. Pipes and cables run across the walls and beneath the grid floor. There is however that same blue liquid with that glow in a triangular shaped frame above every door.
Soon as we reached the room AURA sets itself in a cradle and started up a disk in the middle of the ceiling. Particle seem to light up and drop to the floor, but as I reach in with my hand I feel nothing.
A figure is being projected and as he slowly turns towards me, my eyes are being drawn to a red dragon tattoo on his lower arm. The same tattoo was on the arm of the man who gave these keyes.
