Character's Dirty Secret for Q #atozchallenge

Theme: Characters & Their Dirty Little Secrets.


I hope you enjoy today's entry as we feature another secret for your enjoyment, thrills, chills, and possibly appalling reactions. I tried to keep it under 500 words for each day's entry. Come see what we have in store for you today in a fictional character's own words...

Q (youngest brother from An Enduring Sun)

Genre: Fantasy/scifi
Title: Escape Velocity (coming soon)


To my brothers, I am weak. To my father, I am still a child. To the world, I am broken. Do you want to know a secret? A secret that no one knows?

I am none of these things. My life has not been easy. I suppose life isn’t meant to be. On the outside it might seem that I can’t cope, or that I’m afraid. I’m not. I’m angry. I’m zlagging pissed off. I am tired of being hurt, and used. I am tired of running.

I was raised in a laboratory. My mother died when I was very young, and my life became a series of experiments that were designed to make me stronger. Unbreakable. My body became steel. My mind became impregnable behind layers of hate and fear. The Terrans wanted to make me a killer, and they succeeded.

My brothers are heroes, but I’m not. Even Sevyn, who glories in the kill, only kills for the right reasons. Deep down in my heart, where I still have a bit of my humanity left, I know what I am. I’m the villain. I cannot be saved.

I have another secret. A voice that speaks to me in the night, whispering to me about a life that I could only imagine in my most beautiful dreams. She is soft when I am jagged and sharp, and she understands that I have darkness in my soul. My brothers believe that we deserve a better life. That we can be redeemed. I never thought it was possible, until she spoke to me.

I have never met her. I don’t know where she is, only that her voice floats across the radio waves on a long-dead frequency. I sit up late at night when the others are asleep and we talk until the suns begin to rise. I can tell her anything, and she does not hate me for what I have done. For what I was. For what I am.

I can’t tell my brothers or my father about her. I can’t let them know who she is. What she is. If they found out, they’d demand I never speak to her again. Because she’s one of them. The daughter of a Terran High Command Colonel. An enemy.

An Enduring Sun is Book I in the Project Aeon series. Q will have his own book, in which we get to explore his secrets a bit more, and I am really looking forward to his book! The title of Q’s novel is Escape Velocity and I hope readers will see it in 2018. These stories are part of the Takamo Universe project. Takamo Universe is a MMORPG PC game that will be released for gameplay in the fall of 2017. Authors were asked to create stories inside the game canon so that gamers can have more immersive gameplay. I think lovers of SF and SFR will also love Takamo stories.

Other titles in Aeon Project are:

An Enduring Sun (Book I March 2017)

Dark Star (Book 2 coming soon)

Decaying Orbit (Book 3 coming soon)

Resonance (Book 4 coming soon)

Escape Velocity (Book 5 coming soon)
