A high pitched buzz rendered Nick, Jenny, a half morphed Jekyll-Hyde helpless as Ahmanet utilized her mind control.

Prodigium’s technicians and security moved quickly as Ahmanet used telekinesis and freed herself from the restraints of her mercury prison that pulsed through her veins.

Snapping sounds permeated through the chamber as her restraints released and struck various security guards who attempted to subdue her. Various arms, legs, and torsos sliced apart like fresh-baked bread.

The Pharaoh has returned.

Her limbs once weak and frail became stronger, more toned. Her once ashen skin warmed into a deep ebony bronze, her hair once…

Sometimes I wonder why…why keep going? Why bother killing these damn things. Yeah, I call them “things” because nothing has been human here in a long time. Myself included. Why keep running to a destination in my mind that may not exist?

Why keep this struggle going? Nothing is clear anymore yet nothing is black, white, or grey.

Going to the movies with my father was always a fantastic pastime I shared with him. One of my first outings happened when I was three years old, a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…

It was 1977, my father picked up my siblings and I at my mother’s house in his Camaro Z28 and we drove down 280 to the Century 22 Theatre in San Jose, California. It was a Super 70 mm screen, and being that my father was an avid film buff and audiophile he always took us to this theatre. He would always…
