Pearl and Quasit #86


Pearl's time aboard Coccivora class ship was surreal, memories fractured, jagged. Aboard, felt removed, lawless. Reclusive. For this reason, didn't hear of her father's suicide promptly. Ulia Drones couldn't prenetrate the Glauketas.

She'd been on shoreleave on Roduthae XI when word reached her. She abandoned her post, took a transport to Becca VII. All that was left was the farm, its contents. Keepsakes. Among these items, a written note. Her father'd been very old fashioned; he'd hung himself.

Necromancer Gihl smiled, "You still want a daughter, a baby girl, yes? I'll make that happen for you."

"What are you proposing?"
