Tatter: Chapter 34

Previous chapter The lab-lights coruscated from the dustless ceiling as Ryard Vancing held his bleeding side. Teeth clenched. Eyes narrowing upon the tawny, ferine woman who circled him, jaw set, fists clenched as Tatter watched the scene with keen concern from the diagnostic pod where she remained firmly bound. Ryard briefly caught her gaze and… Continue reading Tatter: Chapter 34

Tatter: Chapter 30

Previous chapter Ryard glanced to his wrist-bound affin module, the screen displayed a intricately detailed map of the city; the signal for his tracker, bequeathed to Tatter, glowed bright blue against the crisp white outline of the tertiary diagram. His brows knitted with concern as the vehicle sped across the expressway, the pedestrian lanes, shimmering… Continue reading Tatter: Chapter 30

Tatter: Chapter 29

Previous chapter The room in which Tatter awoke was brightly lit and devoid of sound save for the gentle tapping of busy fingers on the keys of a computer pad and the gentle hum of a portable generator. The walls were barren, composed of aged, yet finely burnished metal. Numerous pieces of medical equipment lined… Continue reading Tatter: Chapter 29

Tatter: Chapter 28

Previous chapter Bioluminescent plankton basked the cloistered bar in dim azure glow from wall-bound tubes which ribboned the length of the square, low-ceilinged chamber. Blue-lit patrons sat around the semi-circular retractable table as drinks were ferried by server drones, payments automatically deducted from affin modules upon reception. Aecer Digest played across the numerous, wide wall-screens,… Continue reading Tatter: Chapter 28

Tatter: Chapter 27

Previous chapter Ermin Gild stared at the numerous screens set up in his spacious office, news feeds playing on every one. His hands tightly clasped together, chin upon his knuckles. Dark bags under eyes that darted to every blur of motion. Mounting migrant asylum demands. Rising concerns over terrorist violence and potential lockdowns. Discussions of… Continue reading Tatter: Chapter 27

Tatter: Chapter 25

Previous chapter The men and women of Aestival moved as a pack, eight in number, through the labyrinthian alleyways of the city as rain pelted all from the roiling red-gray welkin. Their muscles taunt; eyes sharp; hearts pounding; weapons primed. Upon entering the HEZ, they paused to recover and take in their surroundings, checking the… Continue reading Tatter: Chapter 25

Tatter: Chapter 21

Previous chapter Straker stood in the corner of the wide, empty storage room a block from Loa's club, observing the anxious doorman and the stolid, armored officers that wreathed him. "What do you want?" Kras inquired flippantly, his anger vainly palled by a posture of cocky diffidence. "Vilar Corp maintains a thorough record of its… Continue reading Tatter: Chapter 21

Tatter: Chapter 19

Previous chapter Eddy Kras set his instacake down as the backdoor alarm overtook the thrumming dance music which filled his ears. Glancing at the biosensors he spied a lone woman shrouded in a raincoat, a hood shading her face, pounding upon the entrance to the club in the backalley. He flicked on the speaker system… Continue reading Tatter: Chapter 19
