Eden Symbiotic Ch. 25 Chapter 25
The Being and company kick ass!
The Being only hesitated in taking direct action against the Z.M.C.’s operation on this planet which we did not even know the name of, it waited as Aiko’s brilliantly invented computer virus wreaked havoc on the shield generator system that protected both the planet and the individual compounds located all over the planet. It watched and planned while it waited for its chance to pounce, communicating with the Terran officials that were involved in trying to take down the Z.M.C.”s illegal and immoral operation from both the outside and inside for the past two years when it was discovered.
The Terrans opened communications with Ozbeen high officials of both the Nar-kree and the Zollan factions to tell them what the Company had been doing to them. At first the Ozbeen factions didn’t believe them, but were so tir

“The only constant in the universe is change,” Polly Langley
It took a long time for things to go back to normal, or rather as close to normal as possible. Nearly everything seemed to be in upheaval, both in our personal lives and in the bigger picture.
This year was known as The Long Season by the Edens. The real Egg Season had passed only days after my family and I had returned home, but the eggs in cryo were still being slowly released to different worlds. Symbiotes long held in stasis were hatching in droves everywhere the Shining Ones could find suitable hosts on the many worlds that had invited them to nest there. And there seemed to be an over abundance of worlds to choose from, especially after the defeat of the Z.M.C.
Trade in goods, knowledge and technology sky rocketed. There was one r

The Shining Ones: Also known as The People of the First Clan, or more commonly known as the First Clanners. Sentient beings that are native to planet Eden that are white bioluminescent humanoids with gold, silver, steel, brass, bronze, or copper colored hair that glows in the same color, giving them a halo of colored light around their heads. They are generally fine featured with large, slanted eyes that are solid black with no visible sclera. Their females are oviparous and most of them are only fertile once every fifty years and their entire female population on planet Eden goes in to estrus simultaneously for one year, thereby laying up to a dozen clutches per female. Each clutch will contain one to seven eggs. Within five weeks the larvae hatch and choose a willing host. They are sentient beings who possess powerful mental and p

Ling did as Johnny suggested about the desert rats in the city. They soon heard rumors going around that the rats had figured out how to get past the wards in the King’s castle. King Richard and his staff were beside themselves trying to deal with the tenacious pests. Over the next few weeks Ling began using the rats as spies; since she couldn't see past the protective wards on the castle grounds.
Richard had a warrant out for Johnny’s arrest, in spite of the ruse of Ben as a human messenger. So Johnny stayed in the deep desert with his clan for a while longer, helping them to pack up and move when it was time to go to another camp. It was just as well, morning sickness was a bitch to deal with. He didn’t think he could manage running cargo with the regular attacks of vomiting.
Johnny, embarrassed by the symptoms, tried to hide it by sleeping in his sand ship where

Johnny quickly faded out of consciousness. He was awakened sometime later by a loud clunk, which he vaguely identified as something being hitched to the back of his ship. He fell asleep again, welcoming the oblivion that was preferable the cold raw feeling that made him shake from head to foot.
When he woke again he was looking at a star lit sky and at the edge of his vision was a bright full moon. He was shivering violently and his teeth were chattering. He realized that he was wearing only his underwear and was lying on an old blanket. Colors danced oddly through his vision, sometimes they almost looked like glimpses of dreams before they shifted unsteadily to some other shapeless rainbow.
He wasn’t alone. Spell songs and prayers were chanted over him. Some voices were high and sweet, others ranging in alto, soprano and one deep bass voice. H

Little Girl landed tiredly next to him on the steep sandy grade a few yards away from the cave entrance. Goldie leapt off of her withers and onto Johnny's back as he lay prone with his forehead pressed against his left forearm, trying not to vomit as the cramp subsided.
"Get up!" Goldie squeaked urgently in his ear as Little Girl pushed him with her wet muzzle, dampened with tears of fear and worry, soaking the cloth of his robes as she started to cry again. "They are too far away to see us, but I can still hear their noisy engines coming our way."
Johnny shifted and Goldie jumped off his back. He tried to breathe as slowly and deeply as he could. He had already retched up everything in his stomach several miles back. The next time, a couple of miles later, he only got the dry heaves. As his queasy stomach began to settle, he made it to his hands
Unexpected Cargo Ch. 3
Jonathan Taylor Smith began his first twelve years of life growing up in a small city. To Jonathan, his parents didn't seem rich, but neither were his parents struggling to make ends meet.
He had a baby sister just under a year old named Mary who he loved and adored. He did everything he could to help his mother and father to look after her.
His mother's name was Zora; she had the magic talent to be a seer and empath. She used her ability as a seer to tell her customers fortunes, used her even more powerful empathic abilities to know when someone was lying, to assist in diagnosing ailments and she was also a competent healer. Jonathan's father was named Timothy, but everyone just called him Tim. He was a powerful practitioner in the healing arts and white magic and both his parents used their talents to make a living and to help people in need.
Unexpected Cargo Ch. 10
Three days later, in the early hours of the morning just before sunrise, Johnny dreamed he was sitting on top of the temple rocks watching the sunset, the sky ablaze with reds and oranges. Next to him sat his wife Rebecca and behind them sat another woman he couldn’t see, but he knew she was there. At first he didn’t know who she was, then something told him that it was the Goddess of all Creation.
“Why are you here?” he asked them both. This was the first time the Goddess had come to him in his dreams, but Rebecca had come to him from time to time when Johnny needed her most.
“I want to tell you to be careful, but you already know the risks,” Rebecca said as she continued to stare out at the landscape. The Goddess didn’t seem inclined to answer his question, at least not yet.
Johnny wanted to embrace his dead wife, but in his dream
