Sky Centaurs Chapter 16 Gone
Shasta went back to work. Katie quietly examined the latch and pushed against the lid. Ping watched and tried her best to help but was too small, could not breath fire, or even fly yet. Katie hugged and patted her in thanks for the effort.
“What are you going to do with me?”
“I’ll just keep you here for the time being. I’ll figure out what to do with you later.”
“The others will wonder where I am.“
“I doubt they care about you enough to even notice you gone.”
“Baku will come looking for me.”
“That fool, I’ll tell him you decided to end the relationship. Or better yet, you died in a mine collapse, or explosion. He’ll be dumb enough to believe me.”
Katie clutched Ping and laid down on the bottom of the container with her back turned against Shasta to think.
“He isn’t dumb, he’s different, and brave. Braver than most people actually.”
Shasta seethed as he spun the contai

Sky Centaurs Chapter 15 Little Miracles
“What have we done? When you left, the dragons got a little hostile so some were shot down. One happened to be female with fertile eggs inside. Instead of destroying them, we incubated and hatched them. While small they are harmless. We feed them flops and gowels. Come over here.”
A dozen eggs the size of watermelons sat in an incubation box.
“They take a long time to reach an age when they can lay eggs. We study them. One of them is hatching. Come take a closer look.”
Peering in she saw one of the eggs with a crack growing as it moved side to side. With pieces of the shell pushed aside, enormous luminous eyes paused to focus on Katie.
One of the lab workers opened the incubator and held up the newly hatched blue green dragon as it squirmed around. The dragon reached for Katie even before the lab worker brought it over to her. It wrapped its winged arms around her neck. Katie put her hand under its bottom to lift some of its weight off her neck. Its hot scaly bo

Sky Centaurs Chapter 14 Hydrocarbons
She stood outside in the hallway of the centaur's room and called Shasta when nobody answered the door.
“We’ve been looking for you! Where did you go?”
“I took a morning walk.”
“Well, meet us at the train station in an hour. Something came up. We had a security breach in one of the other labs. We need to go check them out. I’ll tell you more when we get there.”
“Oh no! Ok, I’ll see you there.” doing her best to sound more concerned.
Katie went down to the lobby and asked the kangalopes for directions back to the train station. They drew a path on one of the brochures that had a map of the city.
With map in hand she headed out the door. She walked to the city plaza where the market festival had already started.
Creatures from all over the planet were buying and selling all kinds of things including creatures. Katie bought breakfast from a cart and ate it while meandering through the booths. She saw creatures leashed and c

Sky Centaurs Chapter 13 Apologies
She meandered her way to the city park plaza. She sat on a concrete bench, watching creatures play on the grass, jog on paths, and play in the lake.
“For you, rider of dragons and slayer of the Gowels.” said a hedgehog vendor handing her a flower.
“Thank you.” said Katie
Her communication device beeped. Hesitating, she let it beep until silence. It beeped three times before she accepted.
“What do you want?”
“Look, I'm really sorry about what happened earlier. I'll make it up to you. It's getting late and you need a place to stay. Arrangements were already made for all of us. Meet us at The Purtle Hotel for dinner, ok? Please!”
Looking up at the darkening sky she sighed, “Fine, I'll see you there.”
After asking the hedgehog for directions she set off for the hotel. It was pass the city library, turn left and right from the bank and other office buildings. Along the way she asked for help, some willingly helped her while others

Sky Centaurs Chapter 12 Tourist
“Here, wear this.” said Shasta putting a metal tag around her neck with a (design symbol of Altiplano later) branded into it. “It’s to let people know you are the property of Altiplano. All kinds of small creatures are bought and sold now. This will ensure that you are not taken against your will, its important to indicate who is owner and who is property.”
Katie willingly wore the tag before walking out of the research building with Shasta holding her wrist. Back out on the streets of Citadel, large and small creatures passed by without noticing her.
She could smell the delicious aroma of cooked food before she could see the street holding all the places to eat. There were restaurants and carts dedicated to the cooking of flops among them: Flop Bites, Flop on a Stick, Flip Flop Burgers. There were furless brown round things that were enormous flops turning on a fiery spit. The smells were familiar to all the meat based foods she had at Altiplano. S

Sky Centaurs Chapter 11 Experiments
Quickly the team headed towards the research laboratories to drop off everything they carried. The crowded skyscraper canyons made it hard to see very far. She focused on the creatures around her.
They were on a specific schedule she knew nothing about, but trusted the centaurs.
When they got near the lab building, Shasta told her to get inside a container for creatures and security scanned her in as cargo. Katie played along thinking the story Shasta came up with was way better than hers.
She was carted into restricted areas deep inside the building. She observed the people and things along the way. Everyone worked on mysterious things also. Her cart was parked among others in a corner. Shasta opened the container.
“Ok! You can come out now!”
“Thanks!” said Katie as she stretched her arms and legs. “That was a really good story! I was going to say I hatched out of an egg deformed!”
“That doesn’t make any sense, you don’t look like

Sky Centaurs Chapter 10 Downward
Going through her closet she grabbed extra clothes and other things and tossed them into her backpack. Refilled water bottle strapped in she walked through the plaza shops. She shoved snacks into the backpack she picked up along the way out.
Alone she took the elevator up to the landing platforms not sure when she will return. Perhaps a week? These things usually are unpredictable. With a spring in her step she had to hold herself back from running. She was excited to leave Altiplano and explore a changed planet. The team was waiting for her. Shasta and the others from the lab loaded with supplies and equipment strapped onto them.
“You can ride on me” offered Shasta walking over to a set of step stools for all the short non-centaurs to climb on.
Once she was strapped in, Shasta took her to what seemed like the edge of the world. She saw some centaurs turn to the left and disappear into the edge. Revealed was a nicely carved rock staircase began as a rectangular cutout into

Sky Centaurs Ch. 9 Recovery
Eventually Baku was strong enough to be off of the machines, and out of the sterile environment of the high risk ward. Being his partner, the medical staff began instructing her on the medications he needed to take and why. A stream of people poured in to wish him well. They saw her meticulously measuring out the right dosages on the side of the room before putting them into little paper cups. Others offered to keep him company so she could take a break from keeping him company.
She took walks, washed, slept in her own room, wolfed down food alone, and went back to work in the labs. Tired from staring at the monitors for hours Katie rubbed her eyes and yawned.
“Why are you spending so much time here? You should rest.” said Shasta also working in the lab.
“I don't know what else to do. I'm bonded to a guy who doesn't tell me anything and stuck here with people who don't want me here without any possibility of getting back to Earth.” vented Katie.
Shasta remained

I was given a copy of The Last Cherry Blossom(2016)  by the author Kathleen Burkinshaw. A chapter book for ages 11 and up. The story is about the time her mother, Yuriko, grew up in Japan during World War II, and survived the bombing of Hiroshima.

At first a very sweet story that paints a lovely picture of how a family lived. The novel gives an important perspective of Japanese citizens at the time of the war. The book talked about the propaganda, the banishing of Western influences, the rationing of food, and surrendering all kinds of metal objects to be melted for making planes and other war stuff. From the sweet and innocent perspective of children, the war, and the banishing of things like American Jazz bewildered the girls. How could people who make such nice things be evil? They were as much unknowing victims & participants as ordinary citizens.

Halfway through the book I got angry and sad about what people did to each other during that time. By simply knowing the history, a tension loaded cloud hung over me as I read the buildup to the inevitable event. The hardest part was when the bomb did drop and we get a first hand account of what it did to people. The words give frightening, but not graphic, imagery of the dead, the dying, and those sickened by the explosive force and radiation exposure. This is a very heart wrenching topic to read about but it is an important one. I am very glad to have read this book and share in the experience.
