can’t remember their names, but sometimes you get glimpses. Shivers
and disorienting flashes of long lost somethings. On the handmaids

that would mar her. You could look at that face and see flashes of
burgundy and red and words hurled at a girl like a trident. Cutting

died. Mercy. That’s what your culler taught you, on the world before,
memories, while unheeded and sporadic, were often helpful. Such as
the case with The Grand Highblood or whatever the guppy was called

feel bad about ignoring or taking advantage of it. You get the
feeling he was a jerk in the other world too.

be with a foreign feeling in your blood pumper when you hear that she
faces against a bright eyed neophyte who dies all too quickly. You
had seen it all before.
curse yourself for not noticing an entire group of them until it was
too late. Until they hated and scorned you. Though you doubt it could

your higher shoes behind so that your height was that of a midblood.
recognize you anyway. When you step away, the talkative one, the
little mutant, the annoying leader steps out and gives you a smile
that’s knowing and patronizing and you want to kill him. Then a
little one peeks out behind him and you’re a little shocked at her
ears twitching to the noises, though you aren’t sure why. To the
other side there’s a snarky yellow-blood who seems so much more
levelheaded than the one that you remember, and for the first time,
you doubt what the Handmaid has told you. Everything crashes in the
back of your thinkpan and you glare at them, noting that there was
one missing from their group. You decide not to mention it, or

distracting idea of blue and hoofbeasts when the executioner steps
up. The green blood is spared and the girl flees, but you can’t
bring yourself to care. The jade blood is sold. The Psiioniic, on the

Handmaid visits. The mysterious figure returning to your castle has
become more and more rare over the sweeps. She tells you that you are
ready to go to space. To conquer and spread your kingdom so that your
species will never die. When she goes to leave, instead of your usual
insistence that she stays, you smile wider and more free then you

You’re sure your new helmsman has become lonely.
