Year 8 Day 1
Thank goodness the groups will be back soon! Surely I can find some couple as acolytes who can hunt, cook, make clothing, and do not have and are not expecting a very small and inquisitive child. Rhino and Torch Flower are already borderline on the food and clothing, and I can only hope that Torch Flower waits until Meerkat or someone of similar experience returns before she has her baby!
It has not discouraged her efforts to seduce me. Indeed, by the standards of the People she is at her most desirable when very obviously pregnant. Not by the standards of mine! Broad hips and full breasts, yes, but actual pregnancy …. How shall I put it? It elicits protectiveness, care, but not physical desire.
In the case of Torch Flower, even the protectiveness is muted.
Jarn’s Journal is the journal of a human-like alien stranded in Africa 125,000 years ago. He has met our ancestors, who because of his esper abilities persist in treating him as a god–much to his dismay. His story to date is on my author site; a longer version of this post is on my main blog. His story is the remote back story of the universe in which all of my science fiction is set.
