Chapter 7: Hazing, Part One
The large war room was packed with pirates the high-level robot officers, some three dozen of them, along with another ten or fifteen of the more senior humans. It was very late now, and they werent in the best of tempers after a long days arguing and no breaks. But Anaconda had been in one of his occasional hyperactive moods, overflowing with ideas, striding around the room gesticulating, sweeping his dark red cloak around himself dramatically. So, hours later, here they still were, slumped at the conference table or huddling in dispirited clumps around the room, staring gloomily at maps, listening to the endless rehash of strategies, plans which by now had changed so many times that no one was sure what was supposed to happen any more. All they wanted at this point was to get out of that place, and preferably take the shortest, fastest route to the officers bar.

Chapter 7: Hazing, Part Two
For the past two days, Anaconda had contented himself with simply sending Piranha out on pointless missions. He hadnt permitted the new recruit to come near the map table or even to hang around the room during any planning discussions. On the third day, however, late in the afternoon, when Piranha stumbled through the war room door at last after a six-hour series of detours, Anaconda came up to him with a broad smile that made Piranha glance at him warily.
Getting to know the ship pretty well by now, I should think? Anaconda said pleasantly.
Uh-huh, muttered Piranha, absently. He was still panting a little, having lunged through the door only just ahead of a clump of attackers. He was considering how long they might continue to lie in wait for him out there, and exactly what would be the best method of exit from the room when he was sent off again.

He opened the door of his cabin. It was empty. Thank the gods for one small mercy. The faint greenish lighting by the bathroom was visible, and without turning on any other light he trudged across the floor towards the bed. On the way there, unthinkingly, like a snake writhing out of an old skin he threw off his hat, boots, sword, gun, jacket, vest, even his shirt, leaving on only the black bodysuit that covered his trunk. At which point he reached the bed and flung himself onto it face down. For a time he lay still, hardly breathing, his eyes open. Then his eyes closed.
In darkness, held on his back, held motionless, white fire running through him, suffocating–
He plunges through the night forest into the shadows between the trees, gasping for breath, low-hanging branches like more shadows turned solid to strike his face, even his

Elly jolted awake as a hand gripped her shoulder. She sat upright with a gasp.
It was Rayman, standing grinning beside the bed.

Isnt it the middle of the night? She looked around for clues as to the time. The ships lighting and temperature automatically lowered during the night hours.
Yeah, exactly. Cmon, get up.
As she unwrapped herself from the blankets, shivering, Rayman was pacing in long rapid strides around the room. He halted at last and said, abruptly, Do they guard me here? I havent seen or heard anything.

Chapter 11: The Tormenting of Elly, Part 1
No one could remember a time like this on the Insurrection. The pirate ship had never been so busy, so tightly run, or quite so nervous. During Blargh's lengthy term as first mate, the crew had thought they did very well at raiding, pillaging and creating havoc among populations. But in the weeks and months since Blargh's replacement by Piranha, the pirates were finding out that they had only been lounging around, pirating in their sleep, compared to the work being forced on them now. At the same time, in the old days there had been endless grumbling among the crew at the unabashed corruption of the senior officers, at the unfair distribution of booty, at the preferential treatment given to some officers and crew at the expense of the rest, at the favoritism of robots over humans, at the toleration of bullying and thievery, and at Anaconda's indolent acceptance of it

"I swear, there is nothing on today!", A voice mutters as a young man flips furiously through the channels.
"It's hard enough to enjoy myself off-duty without my Sat. Tv giving me 800 plus channels of zip to watch." The young man states as he tosses the remote into a nearby chair and gets up to grab a soda from the fridge. As he grabs a cola and closes the door, his face reflects in a mirror, showing a slim face with short blond hair and light blue eyes behind small frame glasses. The phone rings and the young man makes a face as he rushes to pick it up from buried between the couch cushions.
A faintly familiar voice comes through the phone's speaker, "Does this happen to be the residence of James Silver?"

He was roaming through the ship, as he hadn't done in many days; the old agony of restlessness was in him again. He paced down the center of the corridors, subtly shying away from the metal walls, his posture erect, for there were crew about, but his eyes lowered, his face hidden under the big brim of his hat.
He'd let himself get pulled in, hadn't he, let himself be touched by that poor girl and her struggles, by her – he pulled his hat down hard, angrily covering even more of his face – by her singing. And then his smothered, stifled past, lurking in wait, had snatched the opportunity to ambush him. Not just him – something of that vision seemed to have reached her, too. It wasn't fair, she didn't deserve that kind of treatment, but inevitably he'd frightened her yet again.
For that matter, he had frightened himself at least as much. It kept drifting back to him now, ghostily, v

It was the middle of the night again when they emerged cautiously from the storage room to return to the cabin, each carrying a bag of booty. Rayman was more comfortable now, having acquired some underclothes, as well as an old loose, long, grey sailors shirt, gathered tightly together at the neck to hold it on, and tied with a piece of rope for a belt. He had even managed to put together some soft leather medieval-looking slippers that just tied around his feet like little bags but they were an improvement over being barefoot. The ragged bathrobe he consigned, with a brief sarcastic ceremony, to one of the junk heaps. The finished and unfinished clothes they had made or altered, he packed into the bag, along with materials to make more.
They went back the way they had come, scurrying cautiously through the branching corridors, pausing frequen

Hurrying through the hall, he was gasping, permeated with a horror he could scarcely comprehend. That crazy old man's ravings... like being dropped down a bottomless hole, and he was still falling.
"You think because you hate him he don't own you?"
Tears were gathering behind his eyes, a huge weight of tears, seeping into him from nowhere, threatening to fill and shatter him the way freezing water will explode its glass container.
And he halted, so furious he could hardly see what was in front of him. Tears. Yes, a pitiable figure he was, weeping while he tore villages apart.
Being a pirate. The absurdity of it. How could anyone be a pirate? How could anyone take a life of predation for granted? Yet he must spend the rest of his life feeding on the bodies of the innocent, so that his own people would be safe from predators

Piranha emerged from the elevator and strode rapidly through the corridor, his coat and shirt torn and covered with dirt, sweat, and blood, his sword bumping against his side, his black eyes ablaze. Anxious slaves and the occasional small menial robot darted out of his path.
As he approached the ship's bridge, the control room, he was composing the report in his head. Or rather, attempting to compose it, his hardest work being to keep shoving aside the images that wrapped around him, dived at him like a swarm of hornets, snaked over and trailed behind him like the links of an endless chain.
All right, Anaconda. It's done, we've established your goddam base.
In the midst of the chaos of fleeing villagers running in all directions, suddenly in front of him, so close he almost trips, a pair of panicked grey eyes staring transfixed into his own and then at his upraised sword.

In a world many worlds away.

Chapter 1: Tender Childhood
A dark place – so much so, that you could imagine yourself at the beginning of life; before the explosion of the worlds concentrated in a tiny spark; at the very beginning of a tale, a legend...
A little hand gropes for a handhold in the shadows; it comes and goes, searching its way in the black. This little hand is special, first of all for its whiteness, almost dazzling in the shadows; but also because it is a hand entirely free, without an arm to tie it down to a body. It seems, however, to be thoroughly under someone's control. For it touches the floor like a blind man feeling out his way. It's the little hand of a child. A child who will shortly emerge in his turn from the shadows. His innocent, angelic face is perfectly e

Somewhere…in a dark place…they clashed.
Sword collided with the blade of a dark scythe, as their wielders struggled briefly before they pushed away from each other.
In the dark place they were, the only thing that could be seen about the fighters was that they were tall figures, humanoid, yet horns could be noticed.
The sword wielder rose two pairs of wings from his back as he flew upward and dove at the other one, who met him with his scythe again, beating his wings, who looked ragged and tattered.
The scythe wielder suddenly threw his left hand ahead of him, pointing it at the other one and unleashed a wave of dark flames. The other suddenly opened its mouth and breathed out white flames that collided with the dark flames, and caused a shockwave, which once again, separated the fighters from each other.
For a little while, the two simply gazed at the other…then they started charging energy, dark flames surrounding the scythe while the sword glowed whi

It was dusk out on the planet. The huge assembly area in the lowest level of the ship, where that morning before dawn the pirates had gathered before launching the attack, was busy again, but with a very different kind of activity. Dozens of pirates were trooping through the room singly and in small groups, lugging objects taken from the planet, dragging strings of prisoners, noisily disputing with each other and with the guards. There were at least a hundred robot guards staged around the room, manning the enormous entrance port, clustering around the huge pile of booty in the center of the room, eyeing with deep suspicion any pirate who came near even to drop some off. They also surrounded the groups of prisoners huddling together alongside the slightly curved metal walls, waiting to be herded off to the next stage of their unknown fate.

However occupied Piranha might be with the hourly emergencies of a warship, the first mate's first priority was still to be at the command of the Boss. Anaconda might go for days without speaking to him, then get into a froth of anxiety or annoyance about something, calling Piranha repeatedly in to see him, generally at the most inconvenient possible moments.
It was in response to such a peremptory summons that Piranha was hurrying to see the Boss. What did that electronic meddling device want now? The first mate had been on his way to meet with his own sub-officers, and now they had to wait while he went to be subjected to Anaconda's latest caprice. The ship had just been moved to a new location to start in on a new native settlement — was the Boss dissatisfied with that already? Was he annoyed that there was now less drinking on the ship?

She was standing on the side of a hill, high up, looking down into a valley that was all in darkness. (To be on a planet, under a sky, standing on grass and earth, was so eerie, so dreamlike, it couldnt be real... It couldnt be real, but here she was. She stared, fascinated.) There were distant hills, gentle mounds, far away at the horizon, a yellow-orange glow dimming behind them; they faded into silhouette and then melted into the blackness that crept up from the valley. The sun was setting.
Elly sat up suddenly. The room was grey and unfamiliar, and for an instant she was seized with fear. Then she remembered. A small smile took possession of her face.
It grew, she had to hide it behind her hands. Smiling was too dangerous. But it wouldnt go away. Elly sighed, happily.
She looked around.

The smoke cleared and dispersed outward over the surrounding gray buildings. Shocked passer-bys stopped in their tracks, their mouths gapping open. But of course, nobody felt the nerve to approach the crashed vehicle and save whoever was buried underneath the rubble.

It was early evening as Elly returned from a trip to pick up some food. Although he ate elsewhere during the day, Piranha still usually took his supper in the cabin. Quietly opening the door, she was startled to find him already there, over near the wall of the galley, lying flat on his stomach on the floor. For a moment she thought she saw a sleek, tiny head lifted up to sniff at a scrap of bread Piranha was holding out, as he slowly reached with a finger of his other hand to —
“No!” she screamed.
Piranha shot straight into the air like a startled cat. The long tail of a small animal vanished behind the cupboard. “Vermin!” Elly gasped. Without thinking, she snatched something heavy — one of Piranha’s daggers, lying on the table — and flung it after the fleeing creature.

And at last, following each other, they caught up with him. It was not in a good place. They were at the top and back of the ship, in the huge cavernous bulge that housed the ship's dozen or so 50-foot-high, automatic, mostly untended engines. A few feet in from the metal ceiling and walls was a separate inner wall and ceiling, a lattice-like freestanding structure like a huge inverted basket woven of six-inch-wide metal strips, forming a loose weave with yard-wide gaps. The metal lattice served to contain the heavy energy discharges that occasionally erupted from the engines, to catch them and funnel that excess, waste energy into batteries that converted it for use inside the ship. The upper part of the room was rather dark, nearly all the lighting being some 40 feet below; and the blue-white, crackling discharges sparking across the metal weave like lightning would ha

While living cargo was being offloaded in the front part of the bottom level, in the rear an immense auditorium had been put together, where most of the Insurrection’s population had gathered for the show. The metal wall separating the two events was so thick and solid that even with less noise going on in the auditorium, no one would ever have heard a sound from the vast room on the other side. There was no direct way to get from one to the other, and in order to reach the back part of the intake level, Piranha had had to climb back up the stairs to take an elevator from two levels above. That elevator, along with several others, opened on a crude lobby, deserted now except for a few irritable robot guards. They were stationed before some large double doors punctuating an alarmingly wide wall. Given the quantity of noise emanating from behind that wall, Piranha might well be the last pirate o
