Another installment of Jarn’s Journal, excerpts for the (fictional) journal of the R’il’nian stranded on Earth some 125,000 years ago. His story is the back story for the science fiction universe behind Homecoming and Tourist Trap. A longer version of today’s entry may be found on my main blog, and the entire journal to date is on my author website.

I am rattled. No, incoherent. Not with rage, but with sheer bewilderment at what to do or say.
When I awoke this morning Songbird was perched cross-legged on the floor where her bed used to be, with Patches on her lap.
