Book reviews will also be published. Author, editor, illustrator, publisher, poet, and rpg site owner interviews are planned for in the future. The episodes ar

A pigeon begins to feed on his own and is kicked out of his flock. He makes some new friends and goes to a rather sad place with a flock of crows for some disturbingly strange fare. Questionable choices are made by our possibly misguided bird friend and he makes a grisly discovery. This short flash fiction of a horror is NOT for the squeamish.

I am not feeling very well lately and have several illustrations to do as well as the writing for Flash Fiction Month. With two upcoming doctor appointments requiring long distance travel this month I will be slowing down. It has been a bit since a meditation or a poetry reading. With this in mind I hope you enjoy Doreen Valiente's "The Witches' Creed" as read by myself and set to music. It can be read here: https://www.sacred-texts.com/bos/bos083.htm

For the 17th reading from this book for the Trotsdale Library enjoyment and discussion is the old tale of Why Rabbits Live in Burrows as collected by Louise and Yuan Hsi Kuo. Narrated by Teresa Garcia I forgot to mention this when recording but as a gun is implied in this tale I think it to be a more modern version. I can't imagine bows going bang instead of twang. However it should also be remembered that the Chinese had gunpowder first. It would be interesting to try finding an older version to compare with.

A tiger, a wolf, and a fox went hunting one day. In this short tale from Chinese Folklore we see the diplomacy of the fox on display. Has there ever been a moment in your life where you've had to call on this particular trick of the fox?

Today I read "How Rabbits Got Pink Eyes and Long Ears" to be played in the Trotsdale Library for the Sunday story and also for an example of flash fiction. In some ways it is very similar to Brer Rabbit and the Tar Baby. I'd like to hear what you think and if you know any other similar tales.Collected by Louise and Yuan Hsi KuoNarrated by Teresa Garcia

Today's reading is a short story entitled "Deceiving Shadows" from "Strange Stories from the Lodge of Leisures." A young man enters a haunted pavilion to disprove superstition. The next day an old man emerges.

This is a very short meditation recorded for Beltane. Given more time I could have made it longer, but I have not had the time. This is not quite as ASMR inducing as I was hoping for. However there are a few triggers tucked in. Bonfires led in to the idea of camping, thus the chosen video clip.

This episode contains several haiku that I had written this past Haiku Month, as well as a reading of The Woman in Green from "Strange Stories from the Lodge of Leisures," a public domain book available on Gutenberg.org. A goddess visits a man, but what is her true form? A dragonfly is fleeting, and what is the expression of a divine love?Music track: Shiro (Instrumental) by Aussens@iter (c) copyright 2017 Licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution (3.0) license. http://dig.ccmixter.org/files/tobias_weber/56795 Ft: Hans Montgomery Atom

Today's podcast episode is up with some poetry and a short dark fiction by myself. I actually GREATLY disturbed myself writing today's feature because "oh, I'll write about a writer that's snowed in" went to "it's the end for me, it's at the window" very quickly.I am still dealing with minor ear, Eustachian tube, and throat issues, and thus also am not speaking at normal levels, as well as having to rebuild filter curves for audio processing. Due to a variety of issues this therefore does not sound as loud to me after bringing the RMS up, and I still sound a little muffled.Not intended for children. For those that need trigger warnings although the poems do not deal with death the feature story does.Gong sound courtesy of Cloudy Skies after a fortuitous accidental discovery.=Full Podcast content=www.FlashFictionFridays.com Podcasts.com: http://www.podcasts.com/mythical-minstrelsy-flash-fiction-fridays-and-ames-bookshelf-1a06920c4 iTunes: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/mythical-minstrelsy-and-flash-fiction-fridays/id1461538463 Google Play: https://playmusic.app.goo.gl/?ibi=com.google.PlayMusic&isi=691797987&ius=googleplaymusic&apn=com.google.android.music&link=https://play.google.com/music/m/Iregmi7sag7o3fg6p3e32k5ghwq?t%3DMythical_Minstrelsy_and_Flash_Fiction_Fridays%26pcampaignid%3DMKT-na-all-co-pr-mu-pod-16 Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/1vLsYYcHOkDdasTFvqe9Ph =Flash Fiction Only Pods=Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/teresa-garcia-34 =Financial assistance for the projects=Patreon: http://www.patreon.com/AmehanaKo-fi: http://www.ko-fi.com/amehanaPaypal: http://paypal.me/thgstardragonFiverr (if you'd like to hire my voice): https://www.fiverr.com/users/amehanaACX narration: https://www.acx.com/narrator?p=A2Y7PVT9DS7158 =Social and Communication=THG StarDragon Publishing, Mythical Minstrelsy & Arashiryuu Productions Discord: https://discord.gg/hvswe2A Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/amehanaarashi/ Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/amehanaarashi Facebook Artist/Author: https://www.facebook.com/Teresa.L.H.Garcia/ =Other places and ways to support=Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Teresa-Garcia/e/B009Q938VE Commissions Info: https://www.deviantart.com/amehanarainstardrago/journal/Commissioning-Information-566657935 DeviantArt: http://amehanarainstardrago.deviantart.com Gumroad: http://www.gumroad.com/thgstardragonPublishing Blog: http://www.thgstardragonpublishingblog.com Publishing Website: http://www.thgstardragon.com Smashwords: https://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/TeresaGarcia Storenvy: http://thgstardragon.storenvy.com/ Check now and then for new things, some I can't list just yet.Threadless: https://thgstardragon.threadless.com Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/Amehana Livejournal: http://rainstardragon.livejournal.com Dreamwidth: http://rainstardragon.dreamwidth.org =Reviews, Readings, and Requests=Want to send me something to read on here or to review?

Tangled Leaves by Teresa Garcia is set in the Dragon Shaman continuity of books. A young mostly untrained shaman (due to her mixed blood status and being taken from her father's reservation when young) seeks a reading about her future. The dragon kami who has claimed her seeks his own guidance. Following the vignette is a small announcement regarding the most recent audiobooks I have been involved in. More updates will come once they are on market.

Hecate is a nightmare that started out as a role play character. This is one of her adventures set previous to times when other players would have known her. A nightmare was said to sit on or lay their head on a sleeper, feeding off of the fear generated by a dreamer's bad dreams. Sometimes they were known to kill.Nightmares come in a variety of forms, from the well fed and darkly glowing black horses, to walking skeletons or skittering horse skulls. They show up in stories in various forms. Hecate is mine.=Financial assistance for the projects=Patreon: http://www.patreon.com/AmehanaKo-fi: http://www.ko-fi.com/amehanaPaypal: http://paypal.me/thgstardragon

Many old folktales can be considered as flash fiction today with how short they are. Here the tale of the buffalo and the tiger shows how important it is to know one's strengths and to put on armor when challenging a tiger. Take that farmer! Today's reading is from the wonderful collection "Chinese Folktales" by Louise and Yuan Hsi Kuo.=Financial assistance for the projects=Patreon: http://www.patreon.com/AmehanaKo-fi: http://www.ko-fi.com/amehanaPaypal: http://paypal.me/thgstardragon

The flash fictions by Teresa Garcia read today on Flash Fiction Fridays are "Just a Little Something" and "Turnabout," both written for Flash Fiction Month. Just a Little Something was written for a challenge incorporating a little known deity, an unreasonable demand, and a fabulous shoe. Turnabout is purely a Coyote tale written because Coyote and Kokopelli needed some love.You can read these yourself at www.deviantart.com/amehanarainstardrago or www.patreon.com/amehana, if you visit the patreon please consider becoming a patron.

This Friday's flash fictions are "The Nest," "Blind," and "The Storage Unit Community" which were all generated by Teresa Garcia during Flash Fiction Month 2019 (July) in response to the posted prompts.

Mama Cat, Lacy-sis, Auntie... that's three. No more death for awhile, right? Please?Today's flash fiction is "Connection" by Teresa Garcia.

I am going to be taking a couple weeks or so off of the podcast and Youtube channel. We recently put down a rescue cat. Though I've been expecting that one day the time would come due to her background it still hits hard. We'll never know her full story or the specifics of what came before my family was woven in with her.Goodnight Mama Cat. We love you. You were abandoned and lost, but you did not die alone and I am sorry your story had to end so soon.I will return soon. Meanwhile I will still be working on audio processing, illustration, writing, testing, and other things. The Patreon will still have new writings put up in the interim. When I return I should have another interview ready.=Full Podcast content=www.FlashFictionFridays.com Podcasts.com: http://www.podcasts.com/mythical-minstrelsy-flash-fiction-fridays-and-ames-bookshelf-1a06920c4 iTunes: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/mythical-minstrelsy-and-flash-fiction-fridays/id1461538463 Google Play: https://playmusic.app.goo.gl/?ibi=com.google.PlayMusic&isi=691797987&ius=googleplaymusic&apn=com.google.android.music&link=https://play.google.com/music/m/Iregmi7sag7o3fg6p3e32k5ghwq?t%3DMythical_Minstrelsy_and_Flash_Fiction_Fridays%26pcampaignid%3DMKT-na-all-co-pr-mu-pod-16 Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/1vLsYYcHOkDdasTFvqe9Ph =Flash Fiction Only Pods=Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/teresa-garcia-34 =Financial assistance for the projects=Patreon: http://www.patreon.com/AmehanaKo-fi: http://www.ko-fi.com/amehanaPaypal: http://paypal.me/thgstardragon=Other places and ways to support=Want to visit me, see some of my other works, or support me?

Kagayaku’s DecisionThe fire guard kept watch, but mortal eyes saw none of the minor kami gathered in the room with their soldiers, nor the influence of the major kami, butsu, and bosatsu the forces regularly prayed to. The incense kept time with a steady creep and rising wisp.She watched him sleep, just as every other sword in the room watched his or her own master sleep. The males as usual outnumbered the women. It did not matter though. Swords were not normally capable of reproducing on their own, nor at all. The humans truly did not reproduce on their own either, just as they did help was required although of a different type.He was childless and wifeless, unlike most of those sleeping men sprawled orderly around them. Breaths and heartbeats were for the lord of the clan and for their families. His beat only for his master, half hollow instead of the full ones of the others. The murmurs had already started several years ago, after she had been awarded him, as to if there would be anyone to inherit her. More bothersome though was how colder and more distant he became with each passing year. Soon he would not be the young man she had known with such promise.She sat straighter where she knelt in seiza beside the head of her warrior and her physical body. Her job was to protect him. Thinking of what he could become made her heart hurt. They had faced too many of those together. He could not become one of the hollow ones who only fought for rice and who tasted so bitter on her sharp tongue. Kagayaku steeled herself, her lips pressing together. The other sword spirits of the room turned their eyes to her, sensing the change in the flow of ki.“After this coming battle I have work that must be done. Who may I ask to instruct me in what men seek of their women?” Her own eyes turned determinedly toward several belonging to those most known to visit the geisha of the floating world, locking with them. Among there kind none bowed to the others, save to he that dwelled in the shrine of the Sun’s Child and still sang of the taste of Orochi’s blood and the vanquishing thereof.Each reddened, their lips played several emotions.“Why, Kagayaku? Do you intend to bear him a son to in turn carry you for our lord yourself? That may be easier than hunting him a wife. Do you not know the sort that he himself looks toward?” Jari, sword of the youngest out of the targeted quintet chuckled.“He looks to none so, I have indeed watched. He does not even look to other men so. If I can find him one, so be it. If I must show myself to him, so be it.” Kagayaku smoothed imaginary wrinkles in her lap, her displeasure giving a cold ring to her song.“I do not think you can be demure enough, younger sister.” At length Mashite, he that was quickest to smooth words sighed. “The women my master sees all act subservient and haughty at once. And far more flirtatious. It would be a shame to model yourself after such peacock, or to find him such. No, he needs someone that will tend him as loyally as you do, that will not flinch to treat him should his armor fail.”His armor’s spirit scowled and made a rude gesture beneath where crossed arms hid his fingers. “I only move as swift as he, no swifter.” His eyes slid over Kagayaku and he scowled more.“She must be willing to put up with long nights of loneliness, and drunkenness.” Other swords began voicing their opinions and advice, not all of it delicate and often far coarser.A few hours before dawn all had decided to try to find someone and to let the others know, then to somehow arrange introductions. They quieted as the ningen began to stir and go about their preparations. Today there would be either death, or life, for each of them. Perhaps some of their own also would be sent to the shadow lands to walk the wind scoured and mist shrouded beaches, or to the lands over which Lady Izanami now ruled, unable to send the dead back home since her once-husband’s betrayal of her modesty and mysteries.Her ningen’s fingers caressed her hilt, and she drew a deep breath. Kagayaku’s bearer would not be one of the fallen, if she had her way. Beneath his touch she sang.Bosatsu = Bodhisattva, a buddha who waits for all to Awaken before leaving The WheelButsu = A buddha that has gone on but turns to give deliverance and guidance to show the Way.Jari = gritKagayaku = luminousKi = energy. Known as chi in ChinaKami = spirit, deity, god/dessMashite = not to mention, let aloneNingen = humanThis was intended to be a short story, but may unfurl into a novella through later flashes to the characters. It is born out of a long ago talk that planted the seed for a samurai that unknowing and reluctantly falls in love with his sword. It also somewhat draws on the reluctant king story seed although the ningen will never rise to king nor emperor.

Book ReviewTitle: The Good Guardian: The Battle of Grey IslandAuthor: Jo JewellWhere to get: https://www.amazon.com/Good-Guardian-Battle-Island-Watch-ebook/dp/B07MPDYX74Star Rating: 5Age Rating (IMO): PG-13/YAWell worth the timeThis is a wonderful installation in this series. I am intrigued by the good guardian and how he slips in and out of the world giving assistance to those chosen as his family. It is my intention and always has been to do similar for my family to the best of my ability.Although they have a guardian the family still has to solve their own problems. We discover more about who Morgan Fairchild was and what he did with his wealth to repair damage against the human race caused by war. These formal and informal adoptees find themselves carrying on his work in their own ways.I found the book full of twists and turns along with excellent foreshadowing. The use of bionics will be of interest to sci fi lovers, the ghost something for the supernatural crowd, and the paramilitary fight to save the world from a mafia boss with major connections something for the thriller, military, and spy crowd.=Full Podcast content=www.FlashFictionFridays.com Podcasts.com: http://www.podcasts.com/mythical-minstrelsy-flash-fiction-fridays-and-ames-bookshelf-1a06920c4 iTunes: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/mythical-minstrelsy-and-flash-fiction-fridays/id1461538463 Google Play: https://playmusic.app.goo.gl/?ibi=com.google.PlayMusic&isi=691797987&ius=googleplaymusic&apn=com.google.android.music&link=https://play.google.com/music/m/Iregmi7sag7o3fg6p3e32k5ghwq?t%3DMythical_Minstrelsy_and_Flash_Fiction_Fridays%26pcampaignid%3DMKT-na-all-co-pr-mu-pod-16 Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/1vLsYYcHOkDdasTFvqe9Ph =Flash Fiction Only Pods=Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/teresa-garcia-34 =Financial assistance for the projects=Patreon: http://www.patreon.com/AmehanaKo-fi: http://www.ko-fi.com/amehanaPaypal: http://paypal.me/thgstardragon=Other places and ways to support=Want to visit me, see some of my other works, or support me?

This Friday the flash fictions presented are once again set within what is now the Dreaming Twilight universe. "The Story of Flame" is an older flash fiction that Lacy/Aria wrote before I discovered and became involved in Nisa. Here we learn about the moment Flame passed from a Nisean Guardian and Ascended to one of the Spirits of the Land."The Shrine of the Gatekeeper" by Teresa Garcia (myself) tells of the moment that Raikou first entered into Nisa after making the long passage through the mists and moutains (the Dreaming Twilight) that sealed the version of her land the known Raikou hails from. Full Podcast contentwww.FlashFictionFridays.com Podcasts.com: http://www.podcasts.com/mythical-minstrelsy-flash-fiction-fridays-and-ames-bookshelf-1a06920c4 iTunes: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/mythical-minstrelsy-and-flash-fiction-fridays/id1461538463 Google Play: https://playmusic.app.goo.gl/?ibi=com.google.PlayMusic&isi=691797987&ius=googleplaymusic&apn=com.google.android.music&link=https://play.google.com/music/m/Iregmi7sag7o3fg6p3e32k5ghwq?t%3DMythical_Minstrelsy_and_Flash_Fiction_Fridays%26pcampaignid%3DMKT-na-all-co-pr-mu-pod-16 Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/1vLsYYcHOkDdasTFvqe9Ph Flash Fiction Only PodsSoundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/teresa-garcia-34 Financial assistancePatreon: http://www.patreon.com/AmehanaKo-fi: http://www.ko-fi.com/amehanaPaypal: http://paypal.me/thgstardragon Other places and ways to supportWant to visit me, see some of my other works, or support me?

Book ReviewTitle: The Dragon QueenAuthor: William AndrewsWhere to get: https://www.amazon.com/Dragon-Queen-William-Andrews-ebook/dp/B075JHQLFW Star Rating: 5Age Rating (IMO): pg 17This is a worthy successor to Daughters of the Dragon. Well written and researched this biography set within a larger story contains a riveting cast. It is a good book to read around the time of reading similar books about the life of Queen Mins contemporary Empress Cixi for an even wider look at the area.I very greatly appreciate the delving into spirits. It is good to read a book dealing with leaders with the ability that does not make her sound crazy.Although some parts are fiction it is still a good look into the history and culture of Korea. Additionally the author provides a wonderful list of reading suggestions for those curious to learn more. This is a must read and I could see it being used in high schools to help spark interest in students.This Friday there will be another installation of Flash Fiction Fridays. On Sunday will be my interview of Rochelle Lazauskas and her two books. I do also intend to do the Sunday Story on the Youtube.---Want to visit me, see some of my other works, or support me?

#Singularity #AlternateWorlds #DimensionalityThis Friday I present three flash fictions. Two of them are by a guest, one Aria Wolfram or Lacy Musketeer. The third is my own.Parting by Aria Wolfram: Nisean lore has always hinged around what disaster befell the original inhabitants of the country in the universe I first entered Nisa from, and long been tied into alternate realities and timelines. In this tale we learn one version of how Ar'ia first enters one of several concurrent versions of Nisa wherein anthro versions of Raikou and Horin rule Ibexia (and adopt her in adulthood) and what that entry looked like from the point of view of her father when she enters the singularity. Or perhaps it could be said the spirits of those who would take physical incarnation to later be the duo. There are alternate theories one could spin from this as well.This is Nisa by Aria Wolfram: I also recommend listening to the original version of the tale as recorded for the MLP world version that she wrote, as recorded by Illya Leonov. She agreed to let me record and share her tale providing that I utilize the version for the currently enacted timeline wherein the denizens tend toward anthro and less toward the MLP based version Nisa was originally held to based on the universe rp was at the time done within (back when it interacted with Roanoak before the Changeling massacre and later the Canterlot bombing when that timeline was communally abandoned and "stored").For posterity, Illya Leonov's recording of the first version: http://www.soundcloud.com/illya-leonovThe Seer by Teresa Garcia: A Seer of indeterminate age attempts to share what is most dear and wondrous with you. But what is your reaction to her world?Financial assistancePatreon: http://www.patreon.com/Amehana Ko-fi: http://www.ko-fi.com/amehana Paypal: http://paypal.me/thgstardragon Other places and ways to supportWant to visit me, see some of my other works, or support me?

The dogs are in the background as this was recorded in the dining area. The background of the creek outside and the dogs seemed appropriate to the book. Here is my review of Tracy Kushwaha's "Hope's Story." Are you involved in some aspect of the publishing industry and interested in an interview? Let me know at ladyrainstardragon@hotmail.com to get the process started. I'm also interested in flash fiction and short fiction for the podcast.Not mentioned in the video we are pretty disappointed here a la casa Garcia that Frontier did not show up when they were supposed to earlier today to install the broadband internet. Not even any calls on either landline nor cell phone! The issue was figured out though so hopefully on the 21st we will have better internet and possibly even be able to live stream again.I no longer have an Amazon Associates spot, so I make no referral fees from book links at this time, even for ones I've illustrated.Your support helps make this and other projects possible.

Have you ever wondered about the life of a sock? Do they really understand our point of view?The Sock Drawer The warm night always came to an end. Day by day the drawer would be pulled out with a deafening rumble. Every day they would loose at least one pair and sometimes more to the giant. Sometimes a fresh pack would be nestled in among them, the babies too young to be released into their cottony swarm. When and if the giant returned any of those it took they always returned worn and battle scarred, smelling of bleach with tales of horror. Not every pair returned whole. Marriage, though the usual social arrangement in their colony, was not permanent. Nor was it forever. Mates wore out, gaining gaping holes from too tight shoes, unshorn nails, and the teeth of dogs and cats. This did not even scratch the surface of the threat of drowning and dashing to pieces in the washer. Dissolving happened all to often to those they knew, as did washing over the side of the tub into the unknown depths below where the screams of the damned still sounded. Collectively each pair and single shook themselves as the drawer once more slid out. Who would it be today to suffer abuse and possibly die? Everyone prepared to cling to everyone else, never giving up the hope of peace. An especially venerable pair was ripped from the mass to the pained gasps of the horde. Weakly they flopped goodbyes. The new patriarchs, a mated pair of threadbare right socks saluted their predecessors. No one hoped for their return. It would be a final walk somewhere, and either dissolving in the wash or a languishing fate in the Bin. Stifled wails choked in flattened and rolled throats. Rustling came from the half open bag on the left hand side where the thicker ones tried to ask the elders for an explanation. No one dared answer them. The drawer was still open and they must never let the giant hear them. Only bad things could happen, like the day it overheard the underwear jeering about getting fat. An entire drawer, wiped out in a matter of minutes! Why was the drawer open so long? A thin, sad plastic bag nestled down on top of the pile, full of new denizens of this layer of hades. The door finally slid shut and the socks all looked at each other in horror. Surely these new inmates, so thin and delicate, would only see a matter of days when it came to their use. But was that a blessing or a curse?

The below flash fiction is set in the Selkies’ Skins universe sometime after Kirsty and David have graduated, married, and started their life together. I have left it intentionally unclear as to exactly how long after graduation. It is long enough for a house in the once again village of Seal Point to be finished near the home Kirsty grew up in.Originally posted on www.patreon.com/Amehana.PlayfulnessDavid rummaged in the impeccably clean pantry looking for his tinned fish. Kirsty was at the office doing whatever her father had called her in for. Her skin was another matter. She had left it to keep him company since she expected a boring day of paperwork and meetings. Said skin was very enthusiastic about staying home, causing mischief, and preventing him from being too sucked into his own pursuits.Kirstyskin never liked hanging on a peg pretending to be a cloak, at least not since she’d gained enough strength to move around on her own. He may, or may not, have contributed to this. It was so hard not to spoil such a cute skin, especially when it so exuberantly communicated things Kirsty herself tried to be more adult and circumspect about. He still couldn’t understand why anyone in their right mind would hide a skin from the corresponding selkie, wife or not. Marsali’s husband had deprived himself and her of a great deal, in his opinion.“Ork! Ork!” The skin attempted to whisper. The barking did not translate well into a whisper at all. She hauled up on her tail and clapped her flippers at him excitedly. Her front gaped open to reveal her smooth suede inside. Sparkling blue eyes glinted at him.“I’m looking dear, I’m looking.” He sighed to himself. “I knew I shouldn’t have said the magic word…”“Feesh! Feeeesh! Feeeeeeeesh?” The skin flopped down and rolled over and over around the kitchen behind him. How and what she filled herself with whenever she’d do this he had no clue. Kirstyskin did not exactly hold still long enough for him to ever satisfy his curiosity about that.“Yes dear. I’m looking for our feesh.” David’s lips lifted in a smile that released his chuckle. “I will make sure you are fat and shiny when the rest of you comes home.”“Feeeeeesh…” The rambunctious skin calmed herself and plopped a head on his foot, nibbling at his ankle through his socks.“I’m not a fish, silly selkie skin.” His rummaging finally yielded fruit.“Are. Wolffish.” She rumbled at him.“Bad pun.” He grinned as he looked down at the very self satisfied smirk on the skin’s face. Kirstyskin blew an impish raspberry at him.One can of little anchovies was still hidden. Unfortunately now she knew the hiding spot. It was just a matter of time before she’d sneak up there in the middle of the night with a chair. He’d have to consult Imp later for ideas on where he could hide Emergency Fish so he’d be more likely to have spares. David’s musing as he made his way to the corner he preferred to flop with her in was interrupted by a flying streak of white.Said streak humped along the floor at top speed from the kitchen to the living room barking gleefully around her mouthful.“I thought we were sharing!”Laughter floated back to him and thumping started up the steps. His own laughter joined hers as he started running after her.

Originally posted on www.patreon.com/AmehanaWikatcha“What’s wrong?” His voice growled but held a tinge of watery burbles. “Where is our baby? I heard birthing cries earlier.”“They took him Wikatcha. When I birthed our baby they never gave it to me. The medicine mother took the child straight out to mother and father. My parents want to drown our baby, like a kitten!”Wikatcha sighed and held the trembling woman close. She felt frail, weak, and the scent of blood still clung to her. He wondered if his bride had even been allowed the dignity of cleaning up the birth blood.“I will not let them. He or she is our kitten. I will take you both away. Keep you both safe. I am sorry. I hoped that you wouldn’t have to make a choice between…”She sobbed quietly and he bit his inner lip, holding back the way he felt about those who gave this maiden, now mother, life. Resolutely, he nodded.“Are you strong enough to go to our meeting place on your own?”Sniffles now, but she nodded. “Yes.”“Go. I will fetch our child and meet you there. Hide. Let no one see you.” Wikatcha took off one of the strings of beads around his neck and looped it instead around her own. “No one, until I say. It is safer.”She nodded and turned wobbly, slow, painful steps away. He watched after her a moment, his hands wishing to float after her and steady her, or to sweep her up. There was no time though. His own struck for the village. Muscle, bone, and sinew flowed into a new form and soon the water cat stalked his prey.It did not matter to him if she was not far enough away to hear the screams that would come. It would hurt, he knew, but it would also bring her a strange form of peace. He poured silently along the path. His nose knew where to go and the village never moved anyway.It was the inhabitants themselves. He needed only three. With that thought he caused the waters to rise and smiled grimly as it reached the first of the dwellings.~0~Wikatcha found the ones he sought by one of the streams that fed into the lake, higher up the slopes. A squirming bundle squalled with a cry far more like his own. The humans shifted nervously as they tried to quiet the child and attempted to decide which of them would do the unspeakable deed. “You are her father, you made the most noise about what happened!”“Wife, you are her mother. Surely then this proclivity is from YOUR side and is YOUR duty to expunge.”“Expunge indeed. You blame ME, as if that… that… thing hadn’t tricked her, us all, into thinking him human and a suitable suitor.”“Then the medicine mother.” Her father’s dark eyes turned on a woman half a generation older than himself. “You did not tell any of us. Did not know at all with all your powers he was one of THEM.”The medicine mother’s voice was low. “I would have taken care of it in a better way if you had not insisted on this fashion. If you would go I could take care of this without anything spreading to you.”“I can’t trust that you wouldn’t be fooled. It is a baby, but it is one of THEM.”“So you think that a baby would trick me into what, exactly?”Was that hidden anger in her voice he heard, anger he smelled as her eyes bored into the man that would kill his own grandchild? Could she be an ally, or at least someone that would not commit such an act if she had the opportunity not to?He stalked as silently as he could. They may not hear him but surely they would know he would be looking for revenge. It puzzled him how they could be so loud knowing this.“I don’t know. Into not killing it maybe, or perhaps just leaving it on a stump and risking that one of THEM would find it.”He wasn’t going to wait to find out how the argument went. Wikatcha took his chance and pounced. The water cat mauled the male while his mate’s mother fled with high screams. Once he was satisfied his adversary was lifeless his golden eyes fell on the medicine woman by the water. The baby had stilled and the bundle no longer squirmed. She stood with her back to the water. His mate’s mother was nowhere in the vicinity.“You never intended to kill the child, did you?”If she was unnerved by human speech rolling from the mouth of a drippy puma the medicine mother did not let it show. “No, not if I could help it. I was going to hide the baby, say it died to keep her parents from learning, and then later smuggle both mother and child out somehow. It… did not work that way. The birth was too loud.”He nodded. “She thinks you were in league with her parents.”“I can understand why. You will keep her safe? It’s not safe for her now.”“I will. They will live with me. My home is ready to support your kind now.”“You will have to do more than that long term. Children always want to know where they came from, and wives eventually wish to see old faces. You will have to make them part of your world eventually, properly.” She was so much younger than he, but going by her eyes she was so much older than he.“I love them as they are.”“That is good. However we both know that your kind are much the same way and fear what they should not.”He sighed and regained his human shape, gently taking his child from her. “I will discuss it with her.” He looked at the medicine mother, her white hair and lining skin. “Will there be trouble if I let this one’s grandmother live?”“I will see to it that there is not.”Wikatcha nodded tiredly.“I will still punish the others. They have to be reminded of how to treat their children. There is a flood. It will continue rising until I am satisfied the baby and my mate will be safe and they have paid enough for how they treat those that are different.” The blood in his mouth cloyed and he had no wish for more. Silently he made his way toward where he hoped his mate was safely waiting.—This was intended to be a much shorter flash fiction but turned out to be larger and more detailed than I expected. Wikatcha is an underwater cat the Creeks of North America tell tales of. He is said to live near the town of Coosa. The version that they tell states the survivors of Wikatcha’s flood founded Tulsa.
