Year 8 Day 61
In fact, I get the impression that her former mate treated her rather roughly, and that her only real regret at his death was the loss of the meat he provided. Certainly she is scarred and somewhat lame, but that makes no difference to me. What is important to me is that she is an expert at tanning and sewing hides and a more than passable cook. She is reasonably adept at butchery, and her cooking of small game such as birds and fish is mouth-watering.
So far as she is concerned, staying in one place and caring for a single person is a welcome respite from her duties to the group. Gazelle and Songbird have been advising her as to my needs (and quirks, I suspect) and my tendency to spend much of my time away exploring. I worry a little about the lack of company for her once the People leave, but Rainbow assures me she will enjoy the rest.
What is more, she likes Patches, and Patches likes her.
Jarn’s Journal is the journal of a human-like alien stranded in Africa roughly 125,000 years ago. He had joined a group of our ancestors, and (much to his annoyance) is being treated as a god. A longer version of this post is on my main blog; the entire Journal to date is on my author site.
