KH Ep I: TRM - Chapter 9: The Girl at a JunkshopIt was not yet mid-afternoon by the time the members of the little company under Java-Rah’s command reached Komo Yat and made their way toward the spaceport’s center.KH Ep I: TRM - Chapter 9: The Girl at a Junkshop by Mistress-Blackrose47
Komo Yat was large and sprawling and had the look of a gnarled serpent hunkered down in the sand to escape the heat.
The buildings were domed and thick walled and curved to protect against the sun, and the stalls and shops were fronted by awnings and verandas that provided a measure of shade to their vendors.
Streets were broad and packed with beings of every shape and size, most from off world.
Some rode the desert-seasoned horses or camels.
Domesticated giant lizards, massive and horned, and lumbering bulls hauled carts, sleds, and wagons that ran on wheels and mechanical tracks by turn, a mishmash of commerce trafficking between Lovelorn Wastes’ smaller ports and the worlds of star systems beyond.
Java-Rah kept a close watch for trouble.
There were creatures whose purpose was always suspect.

AliveBlackrose:Alive by Mistress-Blackrose47
What is this feeling of power and drive,
I never known? I feel alive!
Where does this feeling of power derive,
making me know why I'm alive?
Like the night, it's a secret,
Mysterious, dark and unknown.
I do not know what I seek,
yet I won’t be alone!
I now have a thirst that I cannot deprive.
Never have I felt so alive!
There is no battle I couldn't survive -
Feeling like this - Feeling alive!
Like the moon, an enigma,
lost and alone in the night
Damned by some heavenly stigma,
but blazing with light!
It's the feeling of being alive!
Filled with bloodlust, but truly alive!
It's the truth that cannot be denied!
It's the feeling of being
(Spots a lone Neoshadow Heartless wandering in the night)
Wait, what’s this? Sweet thing…
I thought I lost you, twas fate
What bliss, Sweet thing
Your folly will soon be discreet, my sweet
You’ll see, you won’t escape me
And here, I fear
That you are a treat, my sweet…

He could see a huge Spirit Trade Federation battleship looming ahead through the viewport, cannons firing.
The Queen’s transport was rocked so violently by the blasts that it was thrown from its trajectory.
Roc Jile’s gloved hands were locked onto the steering grips, fighting to bring the slender craft back into line.
“We should abort, sir!” the pilot shouted at Java-Rah, who was braced at his side, eyes fixed on the battleship. “Our deflector shields can’t withstand much more of this!”
“Stay on course,” the Top Member ordered calmly.
He glanced down at the controls. “Do you have a cloaking device?”
“This is not a warship!” Captain Rourke snapped, looking angry and betrayed. “We have no weapons, Ambassador! The Queen’s people have not been trained as soldiers yet, which is why the Spirit Trade Federati

Kift Gradda stood at his side.
Both wore their Federation robes of office instructable expressions.
Two dozens spirit-battle-snakes held the world’s occupants of the room at gunpoint.
The kingdom capital had fallen shortly after sunrise.
There had been little resistance; the world were a powerless, ruled people.
The Spirit Trade Federation invasion had come as a surprise, and the snake spirit army was inside the gates of the city before any substantial defense could be mounted.
What few weapons there were had been confiscated and Dwarf Woodlands removed to detention camps.
Battle-snakes spirits were combing the world even now to put an end to any lingering resistance.
Killtread resisted a smile.
Apparently, Grimhilde herself had believed right up to the end that n
