What Side Didn’t Know Vol.2 – A5,C4. Behave

The trees thinned out as we came closer to the continental ice pillar. “And here we are.”  The convict declared. “Huh.”  As the trees disappeared, the winds picked up.  Also, the ground was warm. Seems like, if we could break the wind, it would probably be warm enough to grow food.  It was only cold

What Side Didn’t Know Vol.2 – A5,C3. Eerie

For the last few days, the convict has been telling me our days traveling will soon be coming to an end.  It definitely has been getting colder. This must be like Earth, where the north and south poles are icy deserts. Instead of riding in the cart, nearly everyone is riding on Otsu’s back.  Poor

What Side Didn’t Know Vol.2 – A5,C2. Fair

Killing an orckin with my newly developed powers, and well trained control, is pretty simple.  It doesn’t matter if that practice was temporally accelerated, right? Anyway, I have tested myself a few times.  This time, I threw a straight-ish stick like a spear, and applied a certain rotation – based on the shape – with

The time to leave comes quickly after that.  Dubhe prods me along each step of the way. As soon as I’m ready, she hands me Nanook to carry, as well as one of her bearfolk children.  Lillia and the hume woman were just steps behind us with the rest of the children. Nanook and the

What Side Didn’t Know Vol.2 – A4,C9. What is Love

I wake up sweaty and far too warm.  Nanook is sprawled, belly up, on my chest. I’m afraid if I move he’ll wake up too. “Hmmm, Mika.”  I can feel the words coming from Otsu, more than hear them.  His body vibrates with his speech. I can feel that through my back and head as

“Otsu…?”  Vancantly, Dubhe whispers his name. Otsu grumbles while shoving his nose off to the side, then plants himself in front of the door, blocking it. Dubhe looks agitated.  “What do you mean ‘surprised to see you here’?” Otsu grumbles again.  Why isn’t he talking? I can’t understand him. “No, don’t you lie to us,

She just doesn’t understand.   I.  Don’t.  Want. To.  Live. Near.  Him. It doesn’t matter how capable he is, or how… restrictive Melsy is.  I just don’t want to be nearby. He’s a jerk. He can’t keep his eyes and hands and words to himself.  I don’t need it and I don’t want it. “We

What Side Didn’t Know Vol.2 – A4,C6. “Odd Things”

After giving several commands to the hume girl, then getting children lined up for feeding, Dubhe seemed ready. Lillia was relaxing the whole time, silently watching… or dozing off?  Maybe both. Melsy busied herself with picking something off of her wings while performing some sort of grooming that included oddly abrasive sounds from rubbing her

What Side Didn’t Know Vol.2 – A4,C5. Resolute

I still don’t understand. Dubhe sighs. A hume woman steps out from behind her.  Who is she? She’s carrying two hume babies.  They are super cute. Not as cute a Nanook, but still cute. “A-ah, uhm.  I think, because your son is a bearfolk, you won’t be able to live with other humes.” … Well,
