Pearl and Quasit #81

by

As the pregnancy progressed, Baron Nicaise began to gather all midwives to Falcaniera in preparation. And assembled all manner of herbalist, shaman, doctor, sorcerer, phitoness and necromancer. The clergy and the devout all flocked to Baron Nicaise like never before.

Deep within clandestine camarillian society, on Khayr IX, Pearl quickly sold the Trichogrammatidae. Half the profit she sent to her father on Becca VII. Other half, she bought indentureship on a Coccivora class ship, replete with one of the most notorious captains in the Khayr Quadrant.

Her first night aboard, she realized with icy melancholic nostalgia was her eighteenth birthday.

    Well, I was going to try and wrap up this story within a story of Baron Nicaise inspired by D.M. by 10 drabbles or so, but that's not going to work out. Hope it is working for everyone that is reading. It'll continue for a few more drabbles. Hope it's interesting enough with a little Pearl backstory and character devopment that I dont normally get to within the normal flow of story.
