Jarn’s Journal Day 610 #SFFSat

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.

Day 610

Do not interfere.

I ignored that wisdom, and now it seems I am hopelessly entangled.

Songbird is back, and not alone. She has brought her whole clan with her. At least, I suppose it is a clan – they all seem to be related in one way or another. And while I never bothered to count them when they were in their own encampment, her words suggest they are all here.

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.

    Oh, I wonder why they’ve all come back?

  2. “Do not interfere.

    Great interplay of these two lines!

    Loved those same two introduction lines.
    And getting to meet someone else’s family…that *never* goes well. 🙂

  4. T.K. Toppin says:

    Great opening line! But as we humans never fail to do, we interfere. At least, I’m hoping he does. It makes for interesting stories. Great stuff as usual.

  5. @CaryCaffrey says:

    Smooth and interesting, as always. I, too, love the introduction lines. I so want to know more about Songbird and her clan.
