Driven by a violent desire to write.

Rebirth of a Legend

A scene study combining fantasy and science fiction elements. I seem to have a tendency to write very short scenes of stories instead of full versions. Something I’m going to have to work on. Have a great day!

Rebirth of a Legend

“We have to find her!” The general alarm was screaming in the labs. The klaxons reverberated off the walls, the echoing magnifying the panic in the scientists and guards frantically searching the building.

“If we don’t find subject 603 this whole project could go under!” Professor Simmons spat. “We can’t let the authorities know we’ve been playing around with genetic manipulation!” A younger, arrogant looking man spoke up, “What’s the big deal? It’s one subject. What harm could it do.” Simmons slapped the man and he fell to the floor. “You idiot! Subject 603 is a fully formed female with the capability to reproduce.”

The younger man lay on the floor, rubbing his swelling face. “It doesn’t matter. There aren’t any males in outside the pens.” Simmons grabbed him by his collar and lifted him off the floor. “She was in the pen for a week with subject 555! She could be pregnant right now. Hell, she could have laid a hatch of eggs already!”

As scientists and guards alike ran about the building a serpentine tail slipped through the ceiling tile. She climbed over the ducts and pipes of the buildings inner workings and deep into the walls near the boilers. She curled around her eggs, nestled in a bundle of wires and breathed a wispy flame onto them to warm them further. They would be born soon, her daughters and sons, the scions of her species.
