Summer with Aunt Ashley

 summer with Aunt Ashley

It was the summer of 1987 and I was sixteen – almost seventeen. Scrawny in those days and usually displaying at least a couple of grazes from a skateboarding mishap. The wounds might have been more important than the boarding skills: badges of honor that even an uncoordinated kid could acquire.

Fighting the Homm: part 15, final.

Chapter twenty nine: mopping up.

Even though the events of the last couple of weeks had made things a lot better, a slight feeling of uneasiness remained for Odyssa. Yes, so far peace seemed more secure, but they had not yet been everywhere to get the treaty signed. As a result she set off again with the Deara the two destroyers and Suha, who this time was accompanied by Kasu, in the Anagara, to investigate the farthest reaches of this universe. Two more Lizard communities signed the treaty and they were already asking themselves if they needed to turn around, when they were attacked by a small fleet of unknown ships. Both Kasu and Circe clouded their the squadron in protective spells, but the fire from the alien vessels took a lot of energy to ward off.

Fighting the Homm: part 14

Chapter twenty seven: the Lizard Amazons

Suha and Odyssa sparred every day from then on. At first it was only the human Amazons watching, but soon Taka, Gora and Zima watched too. It did not take long for Taka to ask if she could be taught as well. Odyssa, who was very satisfied with the quick learning of Suha, asked Suha, if she would mind doing some gentle exercises with Taka, so that she could watch the differences in how her body moved by comparison to herself and Suha. Of course now everybody was interested. Suha was very gentle with Taka, who had great difficulty to adjust to the speed, with which Suha was now moving. Odyssa was watching Taka’s every move, mentally noting how Taka had a completely different body balance, which made it almost impossible for her to match Suha’s movements, but that was what she evidently thought she had to do. Odyssa stopped them.

Fighting the Homm: part 13

Chapter twenty five: the dawning of peace

Like all the other times before Odyssa awoke refreshed and full of drive. Elaria was refreshed, too and Circe, who had protected everyone with her spell just in case, was happy. Both kids were their usual self and so Gaia found a happy little family around her, when she finally woke up, too. Even though she had not recovered all of her strength it was obvious, that the planet was recovering fast. The flora had become abundant and so had the fauna. Gaia was wondering about that, as it had originally been Kronos, who had created the animal life. But when she looked outside more closely she saw Elaria in what could only be a conversation with some of the horses. She definitely saw understanding in the animals eyes, as Elaria was gently speaking to them. Gaia was fascinated. Who was this girl, whom Odyssa called Princess and her daughter?

One Day Changed My Whole Life Part 5

I found it terribly difficult to carry all those shopping bags into the house, not only because they were heavy but also because of the delicate fake nails that I now had to cope with. I was afraid of breaking them whenever I clenched my fist around one of the bag handles, but at the same time I feared for the bags safety because these nails were quite sharp. 

I didn’t spare much time to examine my new nails, as I hated every moment I spent looking at them. They had this strange effect of making my fingers look longer and thinner, more feminine than they had been before. 

Fighting the Homm: part 11

Chapter twenty one: offensive moves

Odyssa’s patience was not put to too hard a test. It only took the equivalent of four days to complete fitting the rest of Kan’s squadron as well as all of Odyssa’s remaining ships and fighters with everything necessary. Ara had called back another squadron for a refit and Odyssa had decided to wait to be able to meet another admiral before setting off again. Her intuition proved itself another time. She purposefully kept to the background, as Ara greeted the squadrons commanders and the admiral, only to find, that the first thing the admiral did was to challenge Ara’s authority. Dressed in just her Amazon suit and armour she slowly moved towards the group to listen more closely.

Fighting the Homm: part 10

Chapter nineteen: A squadron of Homm

After the experience of the attack on Elaria Odyssa was quite sure there would be another attempt of some sort. After Circe had recharged herself asleep in Odyssa’s arms she had cloaked the remaining ships, so that no one approaching could sense them one way or another. The ships remained close to the raided base and the ships Odyssa had wasted. LaSaDa rested on the Deara, as Odyssa had planned the same tactics as last time, if a force of Homm should come to investigate and possibly find some slaves. They’d go empty here, hopefully they would not attack Taka’s city first, but since there had been no Homm there and no slaves either, she hoped her trap would work. Noticing Homm approach, she would use the portal again to hide inside the damaged ship and then attack the Homm from there, once they had landed and got out of their ships. As soon as she had disabled a number of them, all ships would let loose on the remaining force with everything they had at full blast, while Odyssa would add her own fire from ground level.

The Ace-High Lounge was in its early evening lull, between the “I’ll just stop off for a quick drink on the way home” crowd and the “Let’s go out tonight and have a few drinks” crowd. A few people were scattered here and there through the room, trying to decide which group they wanted to be in.

A beefy man, about forty, in a police uniform, walked in and headed quietly over to the bar. “Your boss around?” he asked the bartender.

“In the office,” the bartender said. “You want I should get him?”

Fighting the Homm: part 5

Chapter nine: first action.

Muk, LaSaDa and Odyssa left for the ship together and when they had reached the Pa’an Commander Muk led them to his troop’s mess. The soldiers stood to attention almost as one, even though they were officially off duty. It was perfectly obvious that none of them wanted to shame their commander. Both LaSaDa and Odyssa were impressed.
“At ease, soldiers.” Odyssa commanded “As I am sure you already heard, LaSaDa and I are the heads of operations now together with General Sala and Brigade Commander Ara.”
There was a murmur of agreement.
“I am impressed with your loyalty towards your commanding officer. I know you are off duty, but you saluted us impeccably. Well done.”
Smiles spread on a lot of faces.

Attorney Rebecca Sutton normally didn’t like getting gifts from her staff. She didn’t like this one—until she put it on and couldn’t get it off.

This is the second “Stavros” story.

Fighting the Homm: part 4

Chapter seven: lessons in leadership.

LaSaDa was awed by what she experienced. She had thought herself ready when she had flown off Pa’an in the fighter, but looking at her action in the light of what she experienced now she understood that she had acted as a proud and possibly arrogant individual. Odyssa, on the other hand, was taking charge of an army, breaking any resistance but trying to make friends rather than enemies. Captain Ara was the best example. The way she had treated Rai and Catan another. And what she was doing to Mimi was just short of a miracle. If she had had any success with Muel would have to be seen. When they had a moment by themselves on the flight deck, examining the completely unhurt ship of the Homm she decided to ask Odyssa.

Fighting the Homm: part 3

Chapter five: a battle of wits.

They found more than one base of the pirates, but one seemed to be the most frequented. Odyssa decided to drop the ship off there. But she also decided to erase all traces she might have left in it of herself, Circe or Helena. The next thing was to sort out the tracing problem, as a frustrated Circe and an angry LaSaDa came back. They had not achieved anything, something was completely blocking whatever camouflage magic they tried to apply. Circe was at her wits end. Short of taking LaSaDa back to earth and to ask Washington for an MRI scan Odyssa could only think of one other solution. She took LaSaDa to a secluded room Ara showed her and told Circe to make that complete room vanish with her spell. Like before with her bedroom that worked. Odyssa had LaSaDa undress completely and had Ara take the clothes away.

Chapter 3

" You got me a BIKINI?"

Jake looked at the red string bikini in utter disgust as Jen chuckled. He was now annoyed at Jen.

" This is too much Jen! First you cheat and paint my nails but I don't utter a word. You make me wear heels but I don't complain much. Now a bikini? What are you trying to do?"

" Okay. I agree to cheating in poker. I only did that because I wanted to paint your nails since three years and I could never make you agree to it."

" So that is why every bet we make involves you painting my nails?"
